What's leaving Netflix in December: 'Frasier,' and all five 'Rocky' films

Critically acclaimed film 'Marriage Story' starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver debuts on Dec. 6

'Marriage Story' starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver is the shinning light for Netflix's December list. The streaming platform will say goodbye to the hit show 'Frasier' and all five 'Rocky' films.

Well, Netflix giveth, Netflix taketh away. December will have some wonderful additions to the streaming giant's lineup, but we must say goodbye to a few unexpected favorites. 

First and foremost, what I am about to say may hurt, and I'm sorry, but the streaming giant is saying goodbye to all 11 seasons of Frasier. Yep. The pompously hilarious sitcom starring Kelsey Grammar as Dr. Frasier Crane will no longer be available after Dec. 31.

We all knew "Friends," "Parks and Recreation" and "The Office" were, unfortunately, eventually leaving to head over to the NBCUniversal's new streaming platform, which launches in 2020, but Frasier is taking the hit first. All we can do is pour ourselves a glass of sherry as we watch these classics leave the platform one by one. 

Speaking of classics, all five "Rocky" films will leave the platform on Dec. 31. So, a "Rocky" marathon for you and your loved ones this Christmas may be in order. 

"Wet Hot American Summer," one the quintessential Netflix films will also be leaving on Dec. 31. It has left the platform before, so there's hope this one will return again in the future. 

It isn't all terrible, though. Noah Baumbach's "Marriage Story" starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver is coming to the platform on Dec. 6. This original Netflix film is currently gunning for awards season and judging by the long list of fantastic reviews it may have a shot. 

Meanwhile, all three "Austin Powers" films will head over to the platform on Dec. 1 to find their mojo, and Penn Badgley's stalker show, "You," returns for its second season on Dec. 26. 

Here's everything coming to Netflix in December.
