Most of the big releases are now on Netflix for this week but season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy is due to drop tomorrow and the final drop of Netflix’s Netflix is a Joke Festival in the form of a “Best of the Festival” episode which drops on Sunday.
Today notably saw the removal of three seasons of Reign with season 4 still available for the time being. Set to be removed on Sunday is the LGBT movie I Am Michael and looking ahead to next week, we’d recommend speeding up binges of Criminal Minds given it departs in full next week.
