It’s been a while since How to get away with murder was on our screens with new seasons and the entire collection has been streaming on Netflix for a while, but that won’t be forever. The countdown to when How to get away with murder will leave Netflix for Disney’s own services, here’s when we expect that.
The show aired on ABC, which is owned by Disney. In recent years, Disney has been reckless in buying back its content from services like Netflix to power its Disney+ worldwide or its Hulu service in the US.
In some cases, Disney has opted to buy back its licenses (or forego future royalties), as we saw when it bought back The Defenders from Netflix in early 2022. Other titles were allowed to expire from their old contracts, which is what we expect here.
As some have already speculated, How to get away with murder will eventually leave Netflix, but we can stay ahead of them and
When will How to Get Away with Murder leave Netflix US?
The good news for those in the United States is that the series appears to still be sitting on its old deal with ABC.
As with most other ABC shows, How to get away with murder expires either two or four years after the final season’s addition to Netflix. Since the date for adding the last season was June 13, 2020, we expect the removal date will be June 13, 2022 or 2024. However, we have been informed that in this case it will happily be the latter case.
It’s also worth noting that Shonda Rhimes, who works extensively with Netflix as detailed above, may have a say in potentially streaming the show past its expiration date (something we’ve seen for Ryan Murphy shows, until they’re all gone).
In the US, we suspect the show will stream on Hulu once it leaves Netflix.
