adult cartoon series Close enough will depart Netflix in international territories in May 2023.

Created by J.G. Quintel (regular show), the animated series was among the first wave of HBO Max Originals, though it was originally slated to launch on TBS. It featured the vocal talents of Quintel, Gabrielle Walsh, Jason Mantzoukas, Kimiko Glenn, Jessica DiCicco, James Adomian, and Danielle Brooks. It told the story of a couple living life at age 30 in a Los Angeles duplex.

The series eventually aired on HBO Max for three seasons consisting of 24 episodes (46 segments).

Netflix first acquired the international rights to the show in May 2021, with all Netflix regions receiving the show except the United States. Season 2 joined Netflix internationally in May 2021.

It was streaming exclusively on Netflix in all of these regions and was branded as Netflix Original as a result.

At one point we expected to see season 3 of the show join Netflix, but as 2022 progressed, it became increasingly unlikely that we would see the show join Netflix.

We are referring to the fact that in the summer the news of near enough been in the United States. The first news was of his cancellation in July 2022 before it was one of the More than 40 titles that were purged from the HBO Max library in August. His removal from HBO Max went on to cause a lot of anger within the animation community.

It’s also now clear that Netflix was under no obligation to air the third and final season of the show.

Because it is Close enough leaving Netflix?

Netflix does not own the show, and despite being labeled a Netflix Original, it is ultimately still owned by Warner Bros. Discovery and Cartoon Network Studios.

Its removal date coincides exactly two years after the second season is added. Their removal applies to all regions, including the UK, Australia, and Canada.

A takedown notice is now displayed on the Netflix page for Close enoughstating that their last day to watch is May 25, with the actual removal date expected to be May 26, 2023.
