- Netflix is removing some of the best nostalgic shows.
- ‘The Andy Griffith Show’ and ‘Cheers’ are leaving July 1, 2020.
- The parent company, CBS is adding the shows to their small streaming service.
All of the seasons of The Andy Griffith Show have been on Netflix for our viewing pleasure. Sadly, Netflix is removing the show starting on July 1, 2020, in the United States. As of now, the show is the oldest show to be featured on the streaming service.
The sitcom had eight seasons, with 249 episodes in total. At first, it was black and white but later moved on to color in the later years. It originally aired on CBS from 1960 to 1968. Many fans are upset at Netflix as some of the most popular shows are on the outs.
‘The Andy Griffith Show’ and ‘Cheers’ are leaving Netflix very soon
For example, the popular show Friends has already gone off Netflix. The Office and Parks and Recreation are leaving at the end of the year. Another nostalgic sitcom, Cheers will be leaving at the end of June 2020 as well.

There is a reason for the departures. Many networks, including CBS, are working on their own streaming services. CBS is pulling popular content from Netflix so they can include it in CBS All Access. Reports say that the older Star Trek series and The Twilight Zone may be the next shows to be removed from Netflix.
Will you switch over to watching The Andy Griffith Show on cable or CBS All Access once it is removed from Netflix for good? In conclusion, watch The Andy Griffith Show reunion below:
I’ll drop Netflix if they drop Andy!
Did I miss why they are removing all these classics?

I have had Netflix since it first started. Remember when you had to wait three days for a DVD to come in the mail? There pulling the Andy Griffin show on July 1st. I will be canceling my Netflix account on July 1st. This is a show that I watch everyday. TV shows like this just cannot be made anymore. Thanks for taking away my most relaxing part of my day Netflix!!!

To whom it may concern, I have watch Netflix for a very long time the reason I bought Netflix was for the Andy Griffith television show I am very bothered that it is taken off ., it is truly a wonderful show it’s something that isn’t seen on television much anymore very hometown and down to earth people , This is very sad that you’re removing it and very upsetting to many people!!!
I think it is absurd to remove Andy Griffith from Netflix guess I need to find a new service to pay for and watch it.

One of the reason I keep netflix is because of the Andy Griffith show I love watching it with no commercials, I watch it every day well I guess I’ll be dropping netflix no reason to keep netflix now

Sad sad day , the world is falling apart, I would come from a long day of stress and I would turn to Netflix to find some relaxing episodes of my dear friends in Mayberry. My wife is a teacher and she would take episodes on dvd for the kids to watch. No matter how rowdy the children were, they would always sit still and watch The Andy Griffith Show. I’m sure we are not the only ones who need this. So, I guess goodbye to Netflix.
I agree with everyone else here. I’ve had Netflix for years, but will be getting rid of it now. Andy and the rest of the Mayberry residents were like a part of my family. So if I have to say good-bye to my family, I’m saying good-bye to Netflix.
