Two major DreamWorks Television series labeled Netflix Originals will leave the service globally in April 2023, one of them The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show.

The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show first debuted on Netflix in October 2015, with three additional seasons heading to the service over the course of two years, with the fourth and final season dropping in April 2017.

Now, six years after the final season hit Netflix, it’s due to leave Netflix in its entirety on April 21, 2023.

The series serves as a companion and spin-off to the 2014 film. Mr. Peabody and Sherman, which grossed over $275 million at the box office. It featured the vocal talents of Chris Parnell, Max Charles, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Dieter Jansen, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph and notably featured a 2D aesthetic.

Over the course of 52 episodes, it followed Mr. Peabody and Sherman hosting a zany late-night comedy TV show from an attic, complete with time-traveling guests.

Because it is The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show leaving Netflix?

It all comes down to licensing, and while The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show is a Netflix Original title, it remains the property of DreamWork Television and its parent company, NBC Universal/Comcast. That is proven by the fact that the series debuted in the United States on Universal Kids on April 8, 2018.

As we’re learning, DreamWorks series come out around six years after their final seasons are added to Netflix.

The Departure is the second DreamWorks show to come off Netflix, but notably not the second to be produced by Netflix. For example, it precedes some of DreamWorks Television’s earlier series, such as Hail King Julien and the adventures of puss in bootsBoth hoped to leave Netflix in 2025.

The other major DreamWorks series leaving Netflix (currently) is FAST Turbo which was the first Netflix Original animated children’s title. That show leaves Netflix a little earlier in the month, on April 2, 2023.

Netflix may renew the show to allow it to stick around. Still, there’s no sign of this happening now, with Netflix even confirming the removal via its «new on Netflix» newsletter emailed to various outlets.

Of course, Netflix removals are nothing new. Every month we see titles leaving the service, but in recent years, we’ve seen an explosion in the number of Netflix Originals being removed from the service.
