‘The Originals’ Seasons 1-5 Leaving Netflix in July 2022

Review Ethan / 2022-07-20 17:18:21

It's true. The Originals spinoff of The Vampire Diaries, all four seasons, will be leaving Netflix America on July 1, 2022.

The Vampire Diaries spinoff ran from 2013 to 2018, with 92 episodes, and five seasons on The CW. It’s been a staple on Netflix since 2014 with new seasons being added every year thereafter with the final season added in August 2018.

Although you’ll see many websites state that the show is being removed in June it’s actually scheduled to be removed from Netflix US in full on July 1st, 2022. A notice will soon begin to show on the title that’ll say your last day to watch is “June 30th”.

We should also note that the predictions we made about when The Originals would be leaving Netflix were wrong. The Originals and indeed The Vampire Diaries don’t seem to be adhering to the 5-year window following the addition of the final season rule that all other The CW shows have left on.

Once The Originals depart, it’s only a matter of time until The Vampire Diaries will leave and then Legacies (only available in the US) but that’s not expected for a few years just yet in the latter case (2027 at the earliest most likely).

There was a concern about The Vampire Diaries moving earlier this year, and our intelligence (a post will be made on this soon) indicates that The Vampire Diaries may leave in 2022. At least, in the United States.

After Netflix leaves, where will The Originals be streamed?

Where The Originals doesn’t stream on Netflix such as in Brazil, the series is available exclusively on HBO Max. Given the ultimate owner of the property is Warner Bros. Television, we can expect a similar fate here although we’ve yet to have it confirmed that The Originals is headed to HBO Max.

Is The Originals going to be removed from Netflix?

Netflix India is also seeing the removal of all four seasons of The Originals although they’ll be seeing it removed slightly earlier. It’s due to be removed from Netflix India on June 1st (the last day to watch is May 31st, 2022).

Netflix UK removed the show in 2021, specifically on September 1, and it is not likely to return.

Unogs reports that the series is available on Netflix in Israel and Greece as well as Thailand, South Africa, South Africa, Malaysia, Thailand, South Africa, South Africa and the Philippines. However, there are no removal dates.
