'Big Time Rush' Set to Leave Netflix on March 26

Netflix will be removing all four seasons of Nickelodeon's hit musical comedy series Big Time Rush on March 26, 2023 - two years to the day the streaming platform added the show to its programming library. All episodes will still be available to stream on Paramount+, the streaming home of Nickelodeon.

In Big Time Rush, four best friends from Minnesota trade in their hockey sticks and high-school life for the opportunity of a lifetime: pursue pop music stardom in Los Angeles as a boy band. Discovered as a solo singer, Kendall has no interest in leaving his Midwest life behind, so he agrees to take part in "pop group" training in exchange for the record company allowing his three buddies -- James, Logan and Carlos -- a chance to make it with him as a group. They live in a swanky housing development, but the boys soon find life in Hollywood is not all about the parties and girls, and if they are to make it in the big time, it will only come from hard work, dedication -- and the support of one another.

Big Time Rush stars Kendall Schmidt as Kendall Knight, Carlos PenaVega as Carlos Garcia, James Maslow as James Diamond, Logan Henderson as Logan Mitchell, Ciara Bravo as Katie Knight, Stephen Kramer Glickman as Gustavo Rocque, Tanya Chisholm as Kelly Wainwright, Challen Cates as Jennifer Knight, Erin Sanders as Camille Roberts, Katelyn Tarver as Jo Taylor, and Malese Jow as Lucy Stone.

Over the course of its four-season run, the actors’ lives mimicked that of their onscreen characters. Both on- and off-screen, multiple Big Time Rush albums were released, sold-out tours were embarked on, and millions of fans, also known as Rushers, were made. Notably, the show also spawned a film, Big Time Movie, which debuted in 2012.

Back in 2021, the guys in Big Time Rush began dropping more new songs, starting with the single "Call It Like I See It." At the time, had a chance to speak with the band and they dished on how it felt to be dropping a brand new track after nearly a decade apart. "I mean, every aspect of it has been so much fun," Maslow told us. "I know that we all keep having these moments – we're looking around during a run-through being like, 'Oh, my lord. We're doing this.' It's so exciting being back at it."

PenaVega then explained that getting the band back together was something that took literal years. "We started the conversations I'd say a little over two years ago," he shared. "I don't think each one of us was ready at the same time. It was one and three, or two and two, or three and one." PenaVega noted that it was important for each of them to go "off and [do] what they wanted to do" before they could reunite as Big Time Rush. "I think we knew that we wanted to do Big Time Rush again at some point," he added. "We just didn't know exactly when." 

Finally, Schmidt opened up about the group evolving their sound, saying, "Well, I mean, what is the new Big Time Rush? The new Big Time Rush is... I mean, I just think we've got more experience." He added, "Obviously our music tastes have evolved over time." Following their individual time of "soul-searching," Schmidt said, the group was just in the "right place in their life" for their reunion to be as special as it could be.

Big Time Rush has just announced their Can’t Get Enough Tour tour, with tickets on sale now. Visit for more information.
