These favorites are getting the axe next year

Those who catch all their favorite food shows on Netflix might want to start binge-watching now. As Variety reports, a host of food shows — including Cutthroat Kitchen and Man v. Food — will disappear from Netflix once the company’s Scripps Networks distribution deal ends. And the end is nigh.

In an earnings call on Monday, Scripps Networks Interactive COO Burton Jablin told investors the programmer had decided not to renew a licensing deal with Netflix past the end of this year. Scripps was apparently losing advertising revenue as a result of the deal, which is set to expire at the end of the year.

Among the food shows that will soon get the axe from Netflix?

Diners, Drive-ins and Dives
Food Network Star
Cupcake Wars
Cutthroat Kitchen
Man v. Food
Expedition Unknown
Kitchen Crashers
The Layover with Anthony Bourdain
Good Eats
Worst Cooks in America
Iron Chef America
The Great Food Truck Race
Giada At Home
Ace of Cakes
Guy’s Grocery Games
Mystery Diners
Kids Baking Championship

That doesn’t mean all food shows are disappearing from Netflix. Below, some of shows that won’t be affected by the Scripps deal:

Chef’s Table
I’ll Have What Phil’s Having
Parts Unknown
Street Food Around the World

Scripps’ decision means that no new episodes of the programmer’s shows will be added to Netflix. According to Fox News, those shows currently on the streaming service will no longer be available in 2017. PBS and Netflix have a revolving deal, which means that while viewers were once able to watch Mind of a Chef and the Great British Bake Off on the popular streaming service, those titles are not currently available for streaming on Netflix, though they are available to stream on PBS.
