There's Some Really Bad News for Fans of These 11 Beloved Shows

If you love these series, get ready to say goodbye.

The beginning of December signals the official start of the holiday season, but it also commences Netflix's monthly removal of certain titles from its offerings. This December seems to be particularly brutal, with the platform shedding some of its most beloved series. Keep reading for the 11 shows leaving Netflix in Dec. 2020, and for more essential TV news, If You Have This TV Provider, Prepare For a Blackout This Week.

At the end of each month, a handful of licensing deals tend to expire, per Entertainment Weekly, which is often what's responsible for your favorite shows vanishing from streaming platforms. This December, many binge-able comfort shows are being removed from Netflix, so you might have to branch out and watch something new in place of another rewatch of The Office.

Although Netflix bumped up its subscription price by one dollar a month at the end of October, the platform is dropping some of its key titles, losing these series to other streaming services. The Office is heading to NBC's Peacock, and Gossip Girl will be found on HBO Max, which is also where the Gossip Girl reboot will be streaming.

While some of these shows will be gone as soon as Dec. 8, many of the following will remain on Netflix until the end of the month, leaving you plenty of time to say goodbye.
