The CW Limited Series Containment Is set to leave Netflix in the US in October 2021. The series which is eerily scary considering the events of the past two years is a staple and has been one of The CW’s best titles for years. Here’s when he’s leaving and why you should give him a watch.

Before we get into the gritty details of its removal, let’s first cover the topic of the show and why you should give it a watch because chances are you’ve never heard of it.

Added to Netflix in October 2016, the limited series tells the story of what happened when a ferocious contagion swept through the city of Atlanta. He has seen a city-wide quarantine put in place with officials scrambling to find a cure. Seems familiar?

The series was created by Julie Plec who is known for her work on The vampire diary and its two spin-offs, The originals and Heritage.

Among the cast in the limited series were Chris Wood, Chistina Marie Moses, Claudia Black, David Gyasi and George Young.

The series was not particularly popular when it was released, but viewers of the series continue to praise it. In September 2021, he wears a 7.1 / 10 on IMDb.

It ran for 13 episodes in total, all of which have aired on Netflix for years, but only in the United States.

As you may know, Netflix’s deal with The CW means shows arrive on Netflix for the life of the show and then stay on the service for 5 years. Since this is a limited series, the five-year time frame started to pass in October 2016 and since that timer is now over, the series must go.

All 13 episodes of Containment are leaving Netflix US on October 10, 2021.

Of course, Containment isn’t the only series to come out of The CW. We track all shows leaving Netflix through the CW deal with Reign is expected to leave Netflix in 2022 alongside The vampire diary.

Where will be Containment to stream after leaving Netflix? It’s not clear at this time, but it’s likely that it will drop on HBO Max given that it’s distributed by Warner Brothers Television.
