‘Friends’ — one of the most popular shows on Netflix — will officially leave the platform after this year. The hit sitcom will move to WarnerMedia’s upcoming streaming service, HBO Max.
When the new platform launches in spring 2020, it will be the exclusive streaming home to all 236 episodes of “Friends,” WarnerMedia announced in a press release Tuesday.
“The One Where We Have to Say Goodbye,” Netflix tweeted.” 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.”
The announcement follows the loss of another major sitcom from Netflix — ’The Office.’ The cult-favourite will live on NBCUniversal’s upcoming streaming service following its departure from Netflix in 2021.
