Let’s start with the bad news: Come April, the likes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, and The X-Files are all leaving Netflix. So sample your favorite episodes quickly—or just go watch those shows on Hulu. As you deal with that blow, note that next month Netflix is bringing back Mystery Science Theater 3000, debuting its Bill Nye series, and unveiling the television adaptation of Dear White People. There’s also a forthcoming Louis CK stand-up special, the return of The Get Down, and—sigh—the impending arrival of Sandy Wexler. As the streaming service taketh away, it also giveth. Take a look at the full list of what’s coming and going below.
