Over the coming weeks, another Netflix Original Series will be removed from the site. The British-based limited crime series River will be taken off the streaming service on November 18, 2019.
River, for those who haven’t seen it, is a limited series that features top talents including Stellan Skarsgård (as recently seen in Chernobyl), Nicola Walker, Adeel Akhtar, Lesley Manville and Eddie Marsan.
The series follows John River, a London detective who finds himself trapped between the dead and the living.
The six-part series isn’t technically a full Netflix Original. This series was first published by the BBC of the United Kingdom. This is something we’ve covered in-depth before with their technically being four types of Netflix Original.
Netflix had exclusive streaming rights internationally for River. This is going to be a shock going forward as we’ll be covering many titles in the future that leaves that fall under this category.
It’s also why The Fall, another series produced by the BBC but carrying the Netflix Original logo is leaving on October 29th.
Essentially, yes. The series will depart from all places where there are rivers. This includes even the United Kingdom.
We don’t know exactly where the series could end up next although if we were betting, it’d likely be on BBC’s current (or upcoming if you live in the UK) service called Britbox.
For everyone who hasn’t seen this series, you should absolutely check it out before it departs and given it’s a short limited series, it could easily be consumed within a weekend.
We’ll let you know if anything changes but for now, we’re expecting the series to be removed indefinitely.
