So when Did Mad Men Leave Netflix?

Mad Men left Netflix on June 10, Wednesday after being on the Platform for years. Netflix did notify the viewers about the show departing from the library through their newsletter. There were better times to leave the show on Netflix. Given that Mad Men is an Emmy Nominated series, viewers were bingeing the show during the pandemic from the comfort of their homes. It is a very bad time for Mad Men to leave the Netflix ad. Now even the steaming Platform will lose most of its audience. Mad Men is known for its ultra-gazing costumes and the chemistry between Don and every other character.

Mad Men left Netflix because Lionsgate's Contract with the streaming platform expired. Lionsgate owns the show, and its Contract with Netflix ended in 2011. In the deal, Netflix paid Lionsgate Television for streaming the rights of Mad Men till 2020, as Lionsgate owns the right to the show. It's still unanswered if Netflix and Lionsgate chose not to renew the Contract or if Lionsgate wants to bring the show on a new platform. Although at the time of renewal, Lionsgate decided to step out of the deal. lionsagte wants great. Money for Mad Men. It is compared to HBO Max's work for friends or NBCUniversal for The Office. Lionsgate will have to check with other streaming platforms or negotiate with Netflix, which is a better option as they have the audience.

Netflix's website announced why most of the shows after their expiry don't get renewed for their Platform.

The statement read, "Netflix licenses TV shows and movies from studios and content providers around the world, and those licenses can expire if we don't renew them. Though we strive to keep the content you want to see, we acquire licensing rights for TV shows and movies for a certain period of time, not indefinitely, so some titles do leave Netflix."

If a TV show or movie you love leaves, it indicates that our licensing agreement with the content provider is about to end. Whenever a TV show or movie expires, we evaluate whether or not to renew it using the same criteria we apply to potential new content," the description continues. "We consider factors like: Are the rights to renew the licensing to stream still available? What is the popularity and cost of a particular title? Are there other seasonal or localized factors?"

Mad Men featured Don Draper, played by Jon Hamm, and other great actors like Jones as Betty Draper, Elisabeth Moss as Peggy Olson, Christina Hendricks as Joan Holloway, and John Slattery as Roger Sterling and more. They navigated the advertising industry in the 60s, from 2007 to 2015. There is certainly a lot for reg viewers to watch. Let's hope the show gets a streaming platform pretty soon, or nevertheless, they renew the Contract with Netflix itself.
