We regret to inform you that, as of April 1, Star Trek: The Next Generation will no longer be available on Netflix. Captain Picard and crew will be back in action for only three weeks.
If you’re a fan of Star Trek, this news won’t come as a surprise to you, since Netflix has been progressively streaming different Star Trek series since September.
There was a time last autumn when Netflix was the only place to watch the original series of Star Trek, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise. While some speculate that Altered Carbon and Another Life may exist in an other universe where Netflix episodes that have been removed from the streaming service are still available, it seems that TNG will be sent into a wormhole with the other series plucked from Netflix.
Because of this, before April you’ll need to watch all 177 episodes of TNG at warp speed; that’s more than 100 hours of viewing time. Considering that TNG aired from 1987 to 1994, there’s no shortage of episodes to watch.
But Deep Space Nine will be available to view on Netflix when the next season of Star Trek premieres in April. Even though Star Trek has been on Netflix for a while, there’s a sense that the show’s run may be coming to an end.
For those who want to hang on to their Star Trek fix, Paramount Plus has all of the series now accessible to watch. Discovery and Lower Decks are two more Star Trek spin-offs available on the newer streaming service. Cancelling Netflix and trying out some bizarre new streaming services would be a good idea at this point.
Picard, the second season of which is now available on Prime Video, is a great way to get your fill of Patrick Stewart’s Captain Picard.
In addition, a slew of Netflix titles will be retiring from the site by the end of March 2022, so make sure to see these 11 titles before they go away.
