There’s lots of new stuff coming to Netflix in July, but as always, there’s some stuff leaving too. As Boys II Men said, it’s so hard to say goodbye to Terminator 2: Judgment Day (or something like that, I’m paraphrasing here). Below is a list of all the confirmed movies and TV series leaving Netflix next month. If you want to catch up on T2 before Terminator Genisys comes out, or get really into Miami Vice just for the hell of it, you’ve got a little over a week to do it before they’re gone forever (or at least until August). Read on for your guide to what’s expiring from Netflix Instant in June. Plus, as an added bonus, we’ve added direct links to each title on Netflix, so if you want to watch any of these films or series, just click below. (COUGHyourewelcomeCOUGH.)
