Friends is leaving Netflix in January 2019

Friends is leaving Netflix in January 2019

Late last night and earlier this morning, an expiration date marked the show's Netflix page suggesting that it would be leaving the platform on January 1st, 2019. Netflix doesn't release viewer data, so there's no way to know for sure how many people are watching Friends on the streaming service, but anecdotally it's one of its most popular shows, one that people watch over and over again. As of Monday afternoon, the expiration date has been removed from the Friends show page, which appeared to have been a glitch.

UPDATE 6:10 P.M. ET: The official Netflix Twitter account has confirmed that Friends will continue to reside on the streaming side through the rest of 2019."The Holiday Armadillo has granted your wish: "Friends" will still be there for you in the United States throughout 2019", Netflix wrote.

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.

It was predicted in October that the media giant would be losing the 10-season show - which originally aired from 1994 to 2004 - as well as other content in the coming months as new streaming services prepare to compete in the market. But it seemed like it was worth it.

This is bad news for Friends fans and Netflix as a whole.

The Warner Bros. Television series will likely be included on AT&T's upcoming service, which is expected to launch in 2019. It's possible that "glitch" was a premature sign of things to come. While we don't have a full idea yet what its inventory of titles will consist of, WarnerMedia chief John Stankey has said the service will arrive in the fourth quarter next year and offer consumers three tiers. They may not be there for you forever.
