In the US, Netflix saw everyone in its classic Star Trek series exit on October 1st because it came to renew the license and ViacomCBS decided not to renew. This is not the case for those outside the Netflix US who are still managing all previous series “Klingon” in the international arena (just in case the title sentence doesn’t make you big enough already).
For those out of the loop, there were countless news articles surrounding all the classic removal Star Trek Shows from Netflix. It came as part of Netflix’s PR release for what was leaving Netflix in October 2021.
As always, the media often slammed its coverage on behalf of the United States, leading to a lot of confusion over the listing of all the moves in the classic Star Trek series.
We did not include the Star Trek show on the soon-to-be-released list for Canada, the United Kingdom, or Australia because the removal dates never appeared.
Now, we can confirm that the Star Trek title leaving Netflix only applies to Netflix in the United States where the series has now moved to Paramount +. There are also many headlines in Hulu and Amazon Prime videos until October 1, 2021.
As it stands now, Netflix continues to have access outside the United States:
- Star Trek (1968 – 3 asons)
- Star Trek: The Animated Series (1973 – Season 2) which left Netflix US in December 2011
- Star Trek: The Next Generation (1993 – Season 7)
- Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1999 – Season 7)
- Star Trek :: Voyager (2000 – 7 seasons)
- Star Trek: Enterprise (2004 – 4 seasons)
Netflix also carries it internationally Star Trek: Discovery Exclusively and labeled as a Netflix Original. This fourth season is scheduled to begin in November 2021.
While this is a win for them outside the United States, it may not last forever. ViacomCBS is planning to expand its streaming platform abroad (including Sky Showtime in Europe for example) so Netflix will probably lose these shows at some point but sadly, we have no date for when.
