Each month, streaming services drop a number of shows in order to make room for new shows. In most cases, it's no big deal – but if it's something that's been sitting on your watch list forever and you miss your window, it can be a bit of a nuisance.
Below, we take a look at what's leaving Acorn TV in February 2022. Where possible, we've offered alternative viewing options or suggestions for similar programming in case you miss the show in question.
Prefer to focus on what's new and coming soon? Here's the February 2022 premiere list for Acorn TV, and here's a look at 5 brand new Acorn TV Original shows coming out later in 2022.

Her bravery, nosiness, and desire for justice prevent her from standing back when bad things happen.
