There is no doubt that the Friends TV show is the best sitcom ever. Hence, every streaming service would love to have FRIENDS on its platform as people love to watch the show again and again. When FRIENDS added on Netflix, it was great news for every Netflix.
And finally, again, the day is coming where “The One Where We Have To Say Goodbye” means we are talking about the Friends leaving Netflix. Well, we knew that sometimes it will be leaving Netflix, but we never expected too early. Yes, the “Friends” on Netflix will be no more on Netflix Jan. 1.
If you are not sure, then you can confirm the date on the Netflix’s Friends “Detail” page, which you can get at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen on the “Details” page on Netflix.
Earlier, it was reported that Friends leaving in some time mean from January 1st, 2019, but later, Netflix managed to renew the show with the worth of Netflix. That was a good relief for Friends fans.
But now again the day is coming as Friends leaving in 2020 from the Netflix’s US account acknowledging the removal by Tweeting:
The One Where We Have To Say Goodbye. We’re sorry to see Friends go to Warner’s streaming service at the beginning of 2020 (in The US). Thanks for the memories, gang.
While other Netflix US users could be able to stream Friends on its platform, other country users will be able to enjoy the show for a couple of months.
If you might be wondering why Friends leaving Netflix, then let me tell you that the HBO Max service scheduled to release in May 2020. So we know that Friends belongs to HBO and it’s quite sure they will have the show on their platform.
Still, we think that Netflix will try to convince Warner Bros to keep the show on Netflix as the HBO Max still have time to arrive in spring 2020. Well, we have other option to watch on Netflix like The Big Bang Theory, but Friend is all about the festival as people often watch this sitcom with family every year as it contains some great festival comic episodes (especially Thanksgiving and Christmas).
So I guess time is coming to take a break from Friends as it will leave in a month. Still, you have a month to binge-watching Friends on Netflix until 31st December. What other show you would like to watch on Netflix as Friends alternatives? Feel free to share it with us in the comment section.
