Netflix will lose three Top TV shows next month


However, Peacock Networks will continue to air these series that Netflix has pulled.

Netflix has confirmed that three of its most rewatchable TV shows will be removed from the service at the end of the month, which is bad news for binge-watchers. Even worse for Netflix, these episodes will be offered on Peacock, a competitor streaming service.

On August 1, Netflix will delete Friday Night Lights from its catalog of films and television shows. In the fictitious town of Dillon, Texas, the popular sports drama series follows a high school football team. Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton were the show’s stars, and the show aired for five seasons from 2006 to 2011. When you consider that it was just introduced to Netflix in the United States last year, its withdrawal from the service is somewhat shocking.


30 Rock will leave Netflix on the same day, as previously reported. Tina Fey’s satirical comedy, which stars Liz Lemon as the chief writer of a renowned television sketch program, was the creation of the actress. Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, and Jack McBrayer also starred in the beloved comedy. For the last seven seasons, Netflix has been streaming its 139-episode, seven-season run.

However, 30 Rock has been taken off from Netflix before. Between 2014 and 2017, Netflix subscribers were unable to see the program since it had been removed from the service’s catalog. The show’s return to Netflix last year was much-anticipated, especially since many people consider it a “comfort watch.” However, the second run of the show on the streaming service has been short-lived. Is there a chance it will make a comeback in the future?

You should expect Parks & Recreation to disappear from overseas Netflix libraries on August 1st, as well. Amy Poehler plays Leslie Knope, the vivacious deputy director of the Pawnee, Indiana, parks department, in this quirky comedy sitcom. Added to Netflix U.K. in February 2021, Parks and Recreation has only been on the streaming service for a short time, but it has now been reported that all 126 episodes will be removed from the service within the next few weeks.


It’s no accident that NBCUniversal, the corporation that owns and runs Peacock, created all three of these TV series. The Peacock membership, or at the absolute least a free ad-supported account, may be worth it if you want to keep watching these popular series forever.

However, it’s possible that Netflix was bracing itself for such a turn of events when it lost three well-known series at once. Due to a decline in the company’s capacity to license third-party material, Netflix has invested considerably in producing its own content.

Though many subscribers will be frustrated by the voids left by the loss of shows like 30 Rock, Friday Night Lights, and Parks and Recreation from the service’s collection. This is your final chance to see these series on Netflix if you’re a fan.
