Grey’s Anatomy is set to depart Netflix in multiple regions come January 1st, 2022. Shonda Rhimes' popular medical drama will be available on Netflix USA for now.
Created by Shonda Rhimes, Grey’s Anatomy is the medical drama that airs on ABC. It’s one of the longest-running shows in the network’s history and follows Meredith Grey who finds herself caught up in personal and professional passions with fellow doctors at a Seattle hospital.
The medical drama, along with a host of Disney properties such as New Girl, Sons of Anarchy and How I Met Your Mother, will soon leave Netflix.
According to Unogs expiration data, Grey’s Anatomy will soon be leaving Netflix in the following regions:
Netflix usually has seasons 1-17, which represents hundreds of episodes that were removed from the service during the year.
Many of the regions only received Grey’s Anatomy for the first time in the past 3 years.
Once Netflix leaves these regions, only Netflix Canada and the United States will have Shondaland’s Grey’s Anatomy available.
We’ve covered this at length before but we’re not expecting Grey’s Anatomy to leave Netflix in the United States anytime soon.
That’s because it’s on a legacy contract with ABC that dictates that Netflix will get every season of the show and then remain on Netflix in full for a number of years.
Of course, Disney could opt to buy itself out of this contract but whether they’ll do so is unclear for the moment.
For the moment, however, we’re expecting season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy to be on Netflix US (and Canada) in summer 2022.
Netflix US will, however, soon lose the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off Private Practice in December 2021.
