UPDATE: Everything new on Netflix in October, and what's leaving

09/29/2017

Netflix is parting ways with some older hit network series, such as '30 Rock' and 'Friday Night Lights'

It didn't win any of the major awards at the Emmys, but Netflix Inc.'s surprise monster hit series "Stranger Things" is set to return in October, just in time for Halloween.

Netflix (NFLX) has recently had more success with its original content, garnering 91 Emmy nominations this year, up from 54 nominations a year ago, and second only to Time Warner Inc.-owned (TWX) HBO's 111.

The streaming giant's success in content production will likely lessen the blow as other content producers and distributors, such as Walt Disney Co. (DIS) , shy away from licensing their shows and films to Netflix.

Network and studio executives are speaking up more and more about the dangers of simply signing content over to Netflix, where they receive little to no knowledge of how it's faring and therefore what its value is, just to make a pretty penny up front.
