One of Netflix’s oldest Netflix Original series is currently showing to be leaving Netflix in November 2018. Here’s what we know about the removal and whether or not Netflix will follow-through and actually take the series off of Netflix.
This foreign Netflix Original, not to be confused by The Borgias on Showtime, first made its debut on the streaming site in 2011. This historical drama involved many stakeholders, including Netflix, Sky Italy and ZDF. That’s why the show is considered a French-German-Czech-Italian production.
In case you haven’t seen the show, it’s a historical drama which documents the Borgia family and its rise to power from the 1490’s to the early 1500’s. It featured actors of all backgrounds. It’s an impressive production and scored well with critics.
Netflix shows the date of the removal in America, Canada, and United Kingdom, where it is or has been exclusively distributed by Netflix.
Netflix will likely remove all three seasons on November 1, 2018.
At the moment, we’re not sure. Netflix Originals are by nature original productions, which is why Netflix holds exclusive rights. It is possible that Netflix may remove the show due to the complicated setup. This would be extremely rare as we can’t recall a single time a Netflix Original has left Netflix whether it’s a full original, co-production, international distribution or continuation.
You can keep an eye on our leaving Netflix in November post where we’ll continue updating throughout October and into November regarding the status.
We’ve reached out to Netflix to confirm whether or not Borgia will be leaving the service.
