Disney Plus and Hulu subscribers might want to take note that dozens of shows are reportedly set to disappear from the streaming services at the end of next week.


While most streaming services have looked to hoard content in the past, even pulling titles from other services to bring to their own, many of the big-hitting streaming services have started removing content from their platforms recently. HBO Max, for example, removed a number of popular shows at the start of the year.

It now seems as though Disney Plus and Hulu are two more of those services that are planning to cull content. While Disney has yet to formally announce the removals, Deadline is reporting that dozens of shows will be pulled from Disney Plus and Hulu on May 26th, which is Friday of next week.


Some of the shows that are said to be leaving Disney Plus next week include Big Shot, Just Beyond, The Mysterious Benedict Society, The Quest, The World According To Jeff Goldblum, Turner & Hooch, and Willow.

According to the report, some of the titles that are set to leave Hulu on the same day include Best In Dough, Dollface, Love In The Time Of Corona, Pistol, The Hot Zone, and Y: The Last Man.

As to why Disney is making this move. That’s likely to be the same reason other subscription services have removed content from their platforms – to save money. In HBO Max’s case, some of the removed shows were licensed out and eventually ended up available to stream for free on Tubi and The Roku Channel.


As for the shows that are about to leave Disney Plus and Hulu, their futures remain unknown right now. While it is possible some will end up available on different streaming services, others might not, at least not in the near future.

In the meantime, if you have any of the shows on your Disney Plus or Hulu watch list, you may want to check them out before they disappear on May 26.
