The hit 1990s sitcom, which is still one of the most popular comedies in the U.S. thanks to its availability on Netflix, is leaving the streaming giant on January 1, according to its page on Netflix's website.
Every episode of Friends, all 230 of them, are available to stream on Netflix, and a few of those episodes are always a hot commodity around this time of year with the great Thanksgiving and Christmas episodes that would rival the best Christmas movies on Netflix.
The idea that Friends would leave Netflix for WarnerMedia's new streaming service, meanwhile, is of course not a radical idea either.

Losing Friends will be a big blow for Netflix as the comedy is the third most popular sitcom in the USA behind The Big Bang Theory and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos told THR that Friends leaving Netflix soon was only "a rumour". But Netflix was swift to put a stop to those reports, confirming that the show's "departure is a rumor". Netflix has now removed that expiration notice from its website. The streaming service declined to provide an official comment on the matter though. Netflix is dealing with some serious backlash after they announced that the 90's sitcom that follows a group of friends living their lives will be pulled from the platform in January. The streaming network does not reveal ratings, but I'm willing to bet it's one of the most-watched series on the streaming service around the world. It's possible that "glitch" was a premature sign of things to come. Warner Bros. parent company WarnerMedia is developing its own streaming service for launch by the end of next year.
