NETFLIX is having a summer clear out – wiping a number of titles from the streaming service to make space for new series and show.
Many long-standing favourite films and series are set to be taken down in the coming days, so fans better get binge watching once more.
The Big Lebwoski, Casino Royale and The Departed are among the huge titles waving goodbye to Netflix in August.
Historical drama film The Promise and comedy Scary Movie 5, as well as hit series Jericho, will also be removed from the streaming service.
Casino Royale isn’t the only Bond Film leaving – with Daniel Craig’s Quantum of Solace also being removed later in August.
Classic Christmas film Love Actually and family favourite A Series of Unfortunate Events are also waving goodbye, much to the upset of fans.
Disney fans will have to look elsewhere to watch The Muppets movie, as well as the follow up film, Muppets Most Wanted.
While those who enjoy horror films will have to pay to watch Resident Evil: Afterlife and Resident Evil: Extinction on YouTube.
The Social Network, Superbad, The Ring and The Time Traveller’s Wife are also set to be removed before September.
It’s part of a large shake-up making way for dozens of new Netflix-own series and Hollywood films that will be added to the list next month.

It comes after Netflix announced they were developing a live-action remake of classic cartoon series Pokemon, much to the confusion of fans.
The new live-action series will be written and produced by Lucifer co-showrunner Joe Henderson.
According to Variety, the project will be a continuation from 2019 film Detective Pikachu, which grossed $430 million worldwide.
It is currently in its early stages of development with no plot or casting details revealed, but fans are already concerned what it may look like.
Taking to Twitter to express their concerns, one fan said: “A live action Pokémon series means more Pokémon rendered to be horrifying in cgi 🙁 its inevitable.”
A second wrote: “I enjoyed Detective Pikachu. It was a fun movie, but I was always conflicted about Pokémon being rendered in CGI.
“Like some of the Pokémon looked weirdly creepy with that much realistic detail.”
Another penned: “Detective Pikachu was a fine adaptation, but the main thing concerning about a live-action series is the CGI of the Pokémon.
“Unless the budget is gonna be huge, the CGI won’t be nearly as good on an episode by episode basis like it was with the movie.”
The Pokémon franchise as a whole has become a worldwide phenomenon since first launching in 1995.
The original Pokémon anime was based on the wildly successful video game franchise by Nintendo.
