Star Trek is slowly leaving Netflix, with the next series due to depart in December 2019. The US will be losing the classic Star Trek: The Animated Series on December 1, 2019.

Netflix has streaming the animated series, which spans 22 episodes over two seasons, since December 1, 2016. The animated series features the voices of most of the original cast, including Leonard Nimoy and DeForest Kelley as well as Nichelle Nichols and George Takei.

Although the animation is certainly a little dated, it was revolutionary at the time and although politics eventually caused the series to eventually die a quick death, it’s still worth watching and quintessential if you’re a Star Trek fan.

Netflix USA currently has the December 1st 2019 removal date. Almost every other region of Netflix currently carries the series and isn’t currently due to expire. Netflix will carry the series in many countries, including the United Kingdom and Canada.

After Netflix leaves Star Trek: The Animated Series, where will it stream?

CBS All Access will be able to put the license on its website. CBS is likely to revoke it. Viacom/CBS's head has stated that he plans to use Star Trek in the coming years.

What happens to Star Trek: Other Series?

Star Trek is likely to end in its entirety due to this news, and given the direction of travel of the majority CBS properties currently at the moment, Star Trek may also be ending completely over the next few decades.

Netflix USA still has the 1966 Star Trek series. It also shows the 2001 Star Trek: Enterprise series. Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine series.

The new series exclusively sit on CBS All Access and while Netflix does carry Discovery in select regions, the United States isn’t one of them.

Star Trek: The Animated Series will be gone from Netflix. Will it make you miss Star Trek: The Animated Series? We'd love to hear from you in the comments.
