Netflix Is Breaking Our Hearts In December

It's hard to believe that 2020 is already coming to a close, but December is fast approaching. The COVID-19 pandemic has made this a particularly rough year for many, but that doesn't mean that Netflix will be taking it easy on us when December rolls around. The streaming platform may have a roster of new Christmas movies for you to enjoy this holiday season, but it's also getting rid of some of your favorites.

According to a press release from Netflix, the streaming giant is kicking off the final month of the year by removing Heartbreakers and The Lobster on December 1. You can breathe easy for a couple of days, but on December 4 we'll see the removal of Cabin Fever and Dr. Seuss' The Grinch.

The first half of the month will see several more losses including The Secret, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, and Hart of Dixie.

December will see dozens of films and shows leave Netflix

As usual, the second half of the month will see even more titles removed from the service, starting with Ip Man 3 on December 17. This will be followed by the removal of The Little Hours on December 22 and The West Wing on December 24.
