Friends fans all around have dreaded the show being taken off Netflix. And well, the much dreaded day has finally come!
Although this announcement isn’t a complete surprise because it was announced in July that the show will be moved to the new Warner Bros. streaming platform – HBO MAX. But well, does that make the news any less disappointing? Nope!
And so we report apologetically that as of January 2020, a favorite Chandler, Monica, Ross, Rachel, Joey and Phoebe fix will no longer be available on Netflix.
WarnerMedia Entertainment and direct-to-consumer chairman, Robert Greenblatt said in July,
“HBO Max will bring together the diverse riches of WarnerMedia to create programming and user experiences not seen before in a streaming platform,”
“HBO’s world-class programming leads the way, the quality of which will be the guiding principle for our new array of Max Originals, our exciting acquisitions, and the very best of the Warner Bros. libraries, starting with the phenomenon that is Friends. Under the leadership of two of the strongest creative visionaries—Casey Bloys (HBO) and Kevin Reilly (original content and acquisitions)—and two of the most experienced digital experts, Tony Goncalves and Andy Forssell, I have no doubt they and their dedicated teams will deliver the world’s best storytelling to audiences of all ages wherever and whenever they want it,” he added further.
But allow us to make this a bitter-sweet moment by informing another tiny detail. It’s been reported that a Friends reunion special is in the works for HBO Max! Yes, you read us right!
“We would love for there to be something. But we don’t know what that something is. So we’re just trying. We’re working on something,” Jennifer Aniston recently told Ellen DeGeneres,
So get your dose of Mrs. Chanandler Bond, Smelly Cat, Ugly Naked Guy and all that amazing 90’s style while the show is still up on the streaming platform!
