If you’re watching Star Trek: The Next Generation for the first time or revisiting some episodes of the series on Netflix, then here’s a heads-up for you: the beloved sci-fi classic is leaving the streaming service very soon, at least in the U.S.
When will Star Trek: The Next Generation leave Netflix?
As seen on the Netflix homepage of Star Trek: The Next Generation, U.S. subscribers only have until April 1st to watch the show on the platform.
To inform Trekkies about the move, Star Trek multimedia resource TrekCore recently took to Twitter to share a screenshot from the show’s Netflix homepage, along with the reminder that Star Trek: The Next Generation “will be warping off of Netflix at the end of March.”
Although the series can still be watched on a number of streaming services, TrekCore noted that the departure of Star Trek: The Next Generation from Netflix is part of the apparent plan of the Star Trek franchise to consolidate all its content on Paramount+.
If you're in the United States, looks like STAR TREK: TNG will be warping off of Netflix at the end of March.
