Friends officially leaving Netflix on January 1

Friends Is Leaving Netflix in January 2019?!

According to a report from Engadget, Friends will leave Netflix US on january 1, 2019, meaning the last day to watch the season will be New Year's Eve.

The hit 1990s sitcom, which is still one of the most popular comedies in the USA thanks to its availability on Netflix, is leaving the streaming giant on January 1, according to its page on Netflix's website. And Netflix's chief content officer himself has gone on the record about the matter, with Ted Sarandos telling The Hollywood Reporter that Friends' "departure is a rumor".

The idea that Friends would leave Netflix for WarnerMedia's new streaming service, meanwhile, is of course not a radical idea either. That means fans have only a few more weeks - until New Year's Eve at 11:59pm, to be precise - to binge-watch all 236 episodes of Friends before it's yanked from Netflix's catalogue of shows.

"Friends" will always be there for you, just not on Netflix as of January.

In fact, "Friends" will not be dropping off Netflix on that date. The mega-popular sitcom achieved new life on the streaming service, tapping into old fans' nostalgia and gaining a wave of new, young Gen Z fans who were *gasp* born after it aired. The streaming service declined to provide an official comment on the matter though. Netflix didn't use to be in such fierce competition with companies like Warner Bros. and Disney, but it is now.

"Friends" has been one of the most popular licensed shows on Netflix, ranking in top 10 of the most-viewed licensed TV shows for the 12 months ending in September 2017, according to a data analysis from 7Park Data. AT&T, which owns Warner Bros., the original studio behind Friends, is also launching its own streaming service.
