One of the most exciting things about subscribing to Netflix is finding out what new titles are coming to the service each month. Finding out what’s leaving Netflix can be slightly soul-crushing, as you realize you’re in the middle of a series that is going to disappear soon, but there’s always hope it will come back one day.
The list of new titles and those exiting Netflix in February 2019 isn’t as dramatic or extensive as the list from January, but there are still some big things coming and going. Take a look at the list below, which includes many new Netflix originals debuting in February.

‘Backroad Bounty’ (2014)
If you are into shows like History’s “American Pickers” you might want to check this one out before it disappears on Feb. 4. “Backroad Bounty” is a Canadian show that follows two guys with a gift for finding valuables in the clutter of other people’s homes. Both seasons that are on Netflix will be going away.
