30 Rock Netflix

All good things must come to an end, including Netflix titles. As September ends and gives way to October, so too does the tenure of several Netflix titles to make room for new ones. I know it’s sad to admit, but there are indeed movies leaving Netflix October 2017. So here’s your last chance to catch some of these great titles, because once they’re gone, they’re gone forever. Okay, that’s a lie, they may very well return. Plus, you can always go out and buy a Blu-ray! They still exist, I swear.

Here are the best TV shows and movies leaving Netflix in October 2017.

Summer is over. Good riddance, I say! Bring on chilly weather, heavy jackets and pumpkins as far as the eye can see. I’m talking thousands of pumpkins here, people.

The Meyerowitz Stories trailer

Every once in a while, Adam Sandler decides to stop making paid vacations disguised as movies and turn in a genuinely good performance. The best example is his work in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love, which proved Sandler could turn his short-tempered man-child routine into something genuinely compelling. Now Sandler is at it again with Noah Baumbach‘s The Meyerowitz Stories. Baumbach has surrounded Sandler with quite a cast, and you get a better glimpse of them all, as well as Sandler’s performance, in the new The Meyerowitz Stories trailer.

Netflix penis drawing

Update: The controversy must have reached the ears of Netflix executives, because the episode in question has now been removed from the streaming site. Our original article follows.

Last week, Netflix released the first season of American Vandal, an eight-episode documentary parody of true crime stories like The Jinx and Making a Murderer in which the central mystery revolves around someone spray-painting penises on teachers’ cars in the school’s parking lot. But now it looks like Netflix has a real life dick mystery on their hands, because an angry mother has noticed that an artist snuck a drawing of an erect penis into the background of a children’s cartoon that airs on the streaming service.

The Irishman Netflix

Martin Scorsese‘s upcoming gangster movie The Irishman has traveled a long and difficult road toward production, but it’s finally come together at Netflix. The film will star heavy hitters like Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel, Ray Romano, and Bobby Cannavale, and it features digital de-aging techniques that will allow those actors to play characters across multiple decades.

In a new interview, De Niro spoke about why Netflix was the only proper way to go for The Irishman, and his reasoning involves one vitally important factor: money.

glow season 2

By the time 2017 is over, close to 500 scripted television shows will be out there for the masses to consume. So it’s not too surprising that Netflix – a company which, early in its experimentation with original programming, often renewed its shows for multiple seasons – is starting to outwardly feel the strain of Peak TV.

Their latest casualty? The Naomi Watts series Gypsy, which has officially been canceled. But while Watts’ intimate therapist isn’t coming back to the streaming service after only one season, the gorgeous ladies of wrestling will be stepping back in the ring after their triumphant debut: Netflix has given the go-ahead for GLOW season 2.

American Vandal trailer

With Making a Murderer, Amanda Knox, and The Keepers, Netflix has fully embraced the true crime documentary format in a big way, and those projects generated significant buzz surrounding the streaming service.

At first glance, their new docu-series American Vandal looks like another project that fits alongside the aforementioned docs, but it wasn’t long before I realized this show – which, yes, centers on spray-painted penis drawings – is actually Netflix’s way of satirically mocking the very format it’s seemingly leaned into in the past few years.

What Happened to Monday trailer
