Two years after the re-licensing of Netflix Private practice in the United States, he must now leave. ABC’s Six Seasons Grey’s Anatomy spin off Private practice leaves Netflix US on December 22, 2021.

Taking place at the Seaside Health & Wellness Center, we follow the daily life of Dr Addison Montgomery as she runs a private practice in Los Angeles.

Among the main cast of the series were Kate Walsh, Tim Daly, Adura McDonald, Paul Adelstein and KaDee Strickland.

The series, distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television, was a surprise addition to Netflix in December 2019. The reason it was a surprise is in large part because of the way Disney has operated in recent years in its own right. away licenses. compete with streaming services in favor of strengthening its own platforms, be it Hulu or Disney +.

We suspect that the reason Netflix received Private practice was because of her connection to Shonda Rhimes. Rhimes is working with Netflix on a global deal that was extended in 2021.

As we mentioned, this isn’t the first time Netflix has lost Private Practice. Netflix previously held the streaming rights between September 2014 and June 2017.

Where will the private practice stream after leaving Netflix?

The series will continue to air on Hulu where it will almost certainly be available exclusively after Netflix leaves. We’ve seen some ABC shows licensed for AVOD (be it The Roku Channel or IMBD TV), but we haven’t heard of any plans.

Does that mean Grey’s Anatomy is leaving Netflix?

At least not yet.

Netflix is ​​expected to continue receiving new seasons of Grey’s Anatomy in the United States for the duration of the series. Season 18, for example, is coming to Netflix in 2022.

After the show ends, the show will stay on Netflix for two or four years after that final season is added. All of this to say that Grey’s won’t be leaving Netflix anytime soon despite reports.
