'Friends' Will Be There for You on Netflix After All

Friends

The beloved Warner Bros. -produced comedy, which follows a group of friends in New York City, has been a fixture on Netflix since January 2015. There's a high likelihood of the show leaving Netflix for this new home much the same way Disney's upcoming streaming service Disney+ led to the recent cancellation by Netflix of its three Marvel series Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Daredevil.

It looks like "Friends" isn't leaving Netflix after all. 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.

In fact, "Friends" will not be dropping off Netflix on that date. In 2014, when Netflix first bought those rights, it paid $500,000 an episode.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Netflix confirmed Friends will remain available to stream in the U.S. through the end of 2019.

Disney will also be giving Netflix a run for its month with its service called Disney+ which will be launching in late 2019.

While the battle might have been won, the next one might be far more hard to fight.

The UK and Ireland account confirmed that the show will remain available there too - a very good thing, since it was only added in January of this year.

Netflix spent an estimated $8 billion on content this year in an effort to have 1,000 original shows and movies on the service.

"The One Where Friends is Going Nowhere, Don't Worry", it replied to one anxious fan. And broad and wide distribution is something I feel very strongly about.do I care if Friends is shown on Netflix and on a WarnerMedia SVOD service? Last week he said to analysts, "Some of the incumbents should expect that their libraries are going to become a lot thinner". Mainly, that they'll have to do their homework to figure out what services have what content, and that curating television is about to get a whole lot harder.
