'The Office' Is Leaving Netflix Soon - Here's Where to Stream Instead

We’re here to gently remind everyone that the beloved Steve Carell-led comedy The Office is leaving Netflix on December 31, 2020.

The hit NBC show, which ran on the network from 2005-2013, quickly became one of Netflix’s most-streamed shows on the streaming service once it arrived years ago.

Netflix first announced the news back in 2019, saying, “We’re sad that NBC has decided to take The Office back for its own streaming platform — but members can binge watch the show to their hearts’ content ad-free on Netflix until January 2021.”

You will be able to stream the show on Peacock, NBC’s streaming service, in 2021. Are you sad to see The Office leaving Netflix? Sound off in the comments!

Find out what other hit movies and television shows Netflix will be removing throughout the month of December.

'Saved by The Bell' Removes Selena Gomez Kidney Graffiti & Scenes

Peacock is owning up to its mistake in their new series, Saved By The Bell.

Over the weekend, the streaming network and the show came under fire after featuring a few scenes, as well as some graffiti on the wall of the school that mocked Selena Gomez‘s kidney transplant.

In one scene from the show, two students (not of the main cast) are overheard arguing about just who was Selena‘s transplant donor – ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber‘s mom or singer Demi Lovato.

“Does Selena Gomez even have a kidney?” is also seen written on the walls in the school’s hallway.

Now, the show has erased the scene and graffiti entirely, according to People.

While Selena has yet to address the scenes, her fans and actual donor, Francia Raisa, spoke out about the unnecessary joke.

“We apologize. It was never our intention to make light of Selena’s health. We have been in touch with her team and will be making a donation to her charity, The Selena Gomez Fund for Lupus Research at USC,” Peacock shared in a statement, following the backlash.

Saved By the Bell is streaming now on Peacock.

'Brave New World' is Cancelled by Peacock After One Season

Brave New World has been cancelled by Peacock.

The new streaming site announced on Wednesday (October 28) that they would not be renewing the show for a second season.

“There will not be Season 2 of Brave New World on Peacock,” Peacock said in a statement to Deadline. “[Showrunner] David Wiener created a thought-provoking and cinematic adaptation. We’re grateful to the cast and crew who brought this world to life. We look forward to telling more stories with David in the future.”

Based on the groundbreaking novel by Aldous Huxley, Brave New World imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself. As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx (Harry Lloyd) and Lenina Crowne (Jessica Brown Findlay) embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage (Alden Ehrenreich), who escapes with them back to New London. John’s arrival in the New World soon threatens to disrupt its utopian harmony, leaving Bernard and Lenina to grapple with the repercussions.

The show also starred Demi Moore, Kylie Bunbury, Hannah John-Kamen, Sen Mitsuji, Joseph Morgan, and Nina Sosanya.

According to reports, Brave New World is being shopped around to different outlets.

NBC's Peacock Announces 'Saved By The Bell' Premiere Date

Peacock has just given their new Saved By The Bell series a premiere date!

The series, which brings back Elizabeth Berkley Lauren as Jessie Spano and Mario Lopez as AC Slater, focuses on Bayside High School once again.

Saved By The Bell will debut on Peacock, NBC’s streaming service, on Wednesday, November 25.

Here’s the official summary: When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many underfunded high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the most well-funded schools in the state – including Bayside High.

The influx of new students gives the privileged Bayside kids (who never have a problem that can’t be solved in twenty-two minutes) a much-needed dose of reality.

Josie Totah, Belmont Cameli, Dexter Darden, Mitchell Hoog, Alycia Pascual-Pena, and Haskiri Velazquez also star in the new series.

Peacock Will Finally Be on Roku After Deal Reached with NBCUniversal

Good news for Roku users – Peacock will finally be available on the platform!

The new streaming service launched to the general public on July 15, but it has been missing from Roku for the past two months as the company could not reach a deal with NBCUniversal.

New reports this week said that NBCU was planning on pulling all of its apps from Roku due to their disagreement. But now, a distribution deal has been reached that will keep NBCU apps on Roku and finally bring Peacock to its users.

“We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Comcast that will bring Peacock to Roku customers and maintains access to NBCU’s TV Everywhere apps,” Roku said in a statement (via THR). “We look forward to offering these new options to consumers under an expanded, mutually beneficial relationship between our companies that includes adding NBC content to The Roku Channel and a meaningful partnership around advertising.”

Earlier this month, the founder of Roku explained why HBO Max and Peacock were still not being offered to users.

'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' Drama Reboot in the Works at Peacock!

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is getting a brand new reboot!

The upcoming series, based on Morgan Cooper‘s viral YouTube trailer, will head to Peacock in a straight-to-series two-season order, THR reported Tuesday (September 8).

Original series star Will Smith, Benny Medina and Quincy Jones are behind the drama reboot.

“We have just officially closed the deal with Peacock with an unprecedented two-season-order from a pitch. I’ve been in this business for 30 years and that does not happen. They ordered two full seasons of Bel-Air based on the quality of the pitch and the work that you guys have done. So I want to say congratulations. I am hyped,” Will said in a special video message to Morgan Cooper and Chris Collins.

The cast is also reuniting for a special! Watch the fan trailer that started it all…

Roku Founder Explains Why HBO Max & Peacock Are Still Not Offered

Anthony Wood, the founder and CEO of Roku, is opening up about what the new streaming services HBO Max and Peacock are still not being offered on the platform.

HBO Max launched on May 27 and Peacock launched to the general public on July 15, but you can’t stream them on a Roku still.

“Our platform is open to these services on very reasonable terms,” Anthony told Variety. “All of their main competitors are available on the Roku platform. Fair and reasonable content distribution deals are how we finance the low-cost easy-to-use Roku platform that consumers use to access these services on their TVs.”

The Variety report says that Roku’s “standard ask is 20% of subscription fees and 30% of ad inventory on partner channels.”

WarnerMedia reportedly wants to remove the standalone HBO service from The Roku Channel and have HBO Max as the only option available, which Roku does not support. Peacock only has 5 minutes or less of advertising per hour, so they don’t accept the ad split terms.
