Katniss Everdeen in a fiery battle

These Netflix Titles Are Exiting Stage Left by the End of May 2024

This May, Netflix is clearing out some older content to make way for their shiny new offerings, so this is your “last call” warning for some excellent titles that are leaving the streamer by month’s end.

Recommended Videos

Where the Crawdads Sing, a melancholy film with a, let’s say complex history about a young girl growing up alone in southern wetlands departs early in May 2024. Erin Brockovich, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Mamma Mia! are also taking their final bow, for the time being. You won’t want to miss your last chance to watch the Paul Newman and Robert Redford classic The Sting; the fun rom-com 27 Dresses; or the thoughtful yet funny Silver Linings Playbook.

For fans of Katniss Everdeen, the four original Hunger Games movies are making their exit on May 31. Horror fans, check out Insidious, Annabelle, and Silent Hill before they disappear.

Read on to see everything leaving Netflix in May 2024, with our personal recommendations in bold. You can also take a look at our streaming page for more curated lists, reviews, and everything else you need to find your next great watch!
