Netflix streaming rights are always in flux. Things come, they go, they come back. Maybe. When a beloved show or movie takes its leave of the service, it's worth noting right up front because there's every chance an exclusive deal has been cut for streaming it elsewhere (think Seinfeld—it's only on Hulu). So it may never come back to Netflix. That's why we bring you Netflix's official "going to be nixed" list (plus some supplemental items it don't include).

The full list is below, but here are a few highlights, which will be a big loss.

Doctor Who: Seasons 1-8, Classic Doctor Who: Collections 1-18—Feb. 1

It was a big question over a decade ago when the BBC brought back the legendary Time Lord in brand new adventures. Could it work? It did work, spectacularly, and without a reboot. The new Who built on 26 previous seasons of campy sci-fi adventures to make an equally fun, thoughtful, and sometimes downright poignant take on the crazy old alien with a big blue box traveling through time and space (you can get a full refresher on the Doctor here). Netflix, however, will lose not only the latest few seasons, but also 18 collections of serials from the original run. It must be a Zygon plot! Fingers crossed the Doctor himself lands the TARDIS to undo this. (Check out this scene from the 50th anniversary episode and feel the love when Doctors meet.)

Fletch (1985)—Feb. 1

Remember when Chevy Chase was the go-to funnyman? I.M. Fletcher was one of his best roles (until he made a sequel). I'll be the first to say the books are better, but they made this one work back in 1985.

The Terminator (1984)—Feb. 1

We all know that Terminator 2: Judgment Day is the better film, one of those few sequels to surpass the original. But none of that could have happened without the original story of Sarah Connor being rescued by a man from the future sent to protect her from an unstoppable robot killing machine played by the future governor of California.

Here's the full list of titles leaving Netflix in February. (Titles in italics were found by What's On Netflix fansite and double checked by PCMag.)
