Unfortunately, the addition of new titles to the Netflix library means that the streaming service has had to do some spring cleaning. While no titles are making an exit this weekend, dozens of titles made their last airings on the streaming platform this week. Among the dozens of titles the left are a handful of Disney films and other popular, critically acclaimed shows and movies.
In total, 46 titles have departed the streaming service in the past week, including favorites such as Bridget Jones's Diary, Ocean’s Eleven, Silent Hill, the three movies in Disney’s The Cheetah Girls series, and all High School Musical movies.
While a large number of titles have sadly departed with the ushering in of May, Netflix has already added a ton of titles to replace them.
