'SpongeBob' and 'PAW Patrol' to Leave Netflix Internationally on Sept. 30

With the global rollout of Paramount+ continuing and the upcoming launch of SkyShowtime, the new pan-European streaming service from Comcast and Paramount Global, two beloved Nickelodeon series - SpongeBob SquarePants and PAW Patrol - are set to leave Netflix internationally in October 2022.

Both shows and all of the seasons available on Netflix are currently scheduled to leave the programming libraries of many Netflix services internationally on September 30, 2022, What's On Netflix is reporting.

Season availability of PAW Patrol varies but most regions have access to 3 seasons of the CG-animated preschool series. Locations like the United Kingdom has access to season 1, season 5, and season 6 while locations like France have seasons 3-5.

SpongeBob SquarePants also only has a few seasons streaming on each respective Netflix region with most only carrying seasons 4, 8 and 9.

PAW Patrol, in particular, has been a staple in the Netflix top 10s for kids in most regions worldwide. In the United Kingdom, the show has featured in the kid’s top 10s for 310 days and that’s still growing. The show even outperforms CoComelon on Netflix’s top 10s outside the US.

Netflix Canada, which has access to seasons 1 through 8, won’t be losing PAW Patrol on September 30th at the time of publishing. It did, however, lose the single season of SpongeBob SquarePants on September 1st.

Now it should be noted at this point, that this removal date could simply signify that Netflix is currently set to lose the series due to the rights expiring. This could change given contracts can be renewed.

These removals do not pertain to Netflix US because they don’t stream on the service there despite a massive library of Nickelodeon titles featuring on the library.

The news comes as Netflix Canada lost a huge collection of Nickelodeon content earlier this month and select regions of Netflix will also be losing Pablo, Equestria Girls: Tales of Canterlot High, Noddy Toyland Detective, and even the Netflix Original series Veggietales: In The House in the coming weeks.
