Shrek & Shrek 2 Are Officially Back On Netflix Today

You might remember the absolute outrage that ensued when Shrek and Shrek 2 were removed from Netflix.

People were livid when the popular cartoons were removed from the streamer - and the good news is it looks like Netflix were listening.

Posting on its official Twitter earlier this month, Netflix wrote: "SHREK NEWS... Shrek returns to Netflix on 1 April. End of Shrek news.".

Yaaaas.

Sensibly, Netflix added a second tweet, caveating: "Just because something is happening on 1 April doesn't mean it's an April Fool. Shrek is coming, promise."

When quizzed by one fan, named Darcy, whether it would just be the first movie returning, Netflix was also quick to offer some more good news.

"I have news for you, Darcy. Shrek 2 ALSO returns on 1 April. What. A. Day," a reply from the streamer read.

"SWAMP TIME," wrote one fan in the comments, as the news was announced.

While another penned: "Oh my Godddd!!! What excellent news!!!!!! Thanks for the heads up".

"God has answered my prayers! Back to watching it daily," another Shrek super-fan wrote.

It was not much short of a year ago that the Shrek movies were first removed from Netflix, after being taken over by Disney+.

And, let's just say, people had some feelings.

In a completely measured and not-at-all-dramatic comment, one Shrek fan wrote: "Very disappointed Netflix.

"Shrek is a lifestyle and our birth right. You taking this away from us is like ripping our own child from our arms and taking them away. If you think you will be forgiven, you are sorely mistaken, sir!"

Loading…

Another raged: "What's the point of Netflix then? There is none. Shrek is love. Shrek is life".

As a third chipped in: "You're grounded, Netflix! As if there's not enough going wrong with the world".

"Disgusting and disappointed Netflix," said another, rather hyperbolically. "Shrek is the only thing that helps us get through our days, and seeing as there's nothing else good to watch on Netflix we stick to our god, Shrek."

(Okay, that last one might have been a *little* too far, tbh).

It's safe to say that the return of Shrek to Netflix is going to make a lot of people very happy...
