Every day, the internet’s favorite TV and movie streamer introduces and takes away new series and films. This month, the site is taking away over 30 programs to make way for new additions. Here are five favorites leaving this April.

1. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)

   The loss of this classic movie is a huge disappointment. This lighthearted 1980’s film follows the story of a senior boy (Ferris Bueller), who decides to take time off school by calling in sick. Watching Ferris’ day through the streets of Chicago while being pursued by an evil school principal is hysterical, and is sure to make anyone laugh.

2. The Princess Bride (1987)

   Alas, yet another great 80’s movie leaving Netflix. It follows the thrilling story of Buttercup, a young girl searching for her true love. The addition of Vizzini, Fezzik, and Inigo Montoya brings action and humor to the film, with twists that will make you shout “Inconceivable!” The Princess Bride is both emotional and funny, and it will be dearly missed this month.

3. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Seasons 1-7 (1997-2003)

   A favorite by many, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Series, based off of the movie with the same title, will be leaving Netflix this month. Sarah Michelle Gellar plays a seemingly normal teenage girl, with a not so normal life. Buffy Summers struggles to balance the stress of everyday life and her odd job of killing vampires.

4. The X-Files, Seasons 1-9 (1993-2002)

   Following two FBI agents, the X-Files is one of the longest running sci-fi series to ever air. Fox Mulder and Dana Scully investigate crazy cases, while secretly being worked against by an unknown force. Although the first nine seasons are leaving Netflix, don’t worry! The show is still very popular, and Fox network is bringing back the series with brand new episodes.

5. Firefly, Season 1 (2002-2003)

   Firefly has 14 episodes, and aired for one season. Although the show had a short time on the TV, it was very popular and has high ratings. It’s set 500 years in the future, and tells the story of a group of travelers flying through space while avoiding evil.
