  • More than 25 years after the sitcom first premiered in 1994, Friends is still one of the most popular television shows people are watching right now.
  • The entire series of Friends had been available to stream on Netflix, but the platform’s license to stream the series expired a few months ago on January 1, 2020.
  • Friends will soon be available to stream exclusively on HBO Max following the service’s launch, but fans of the show might want to take advantage of Amazon’s deep discounts on the complete series box set instead.

It has been 26 years since Friends first aired on NBC on September 22, 1994. Can you believe that? Twenty-six years! Rachel Green fled her wedding and ran into childhood friend Monica Green before taking a job as a coffee house waitress at “Central Perk,” and the rest, as they say, is history. The show lasted an impressive 10 seasons before wrapping up in May of 2004, and it was one of the most popular shows on TV back then. Incredibly, it’s still one of the most popular shows all these years later in 2020.

For years, all 10 seasons of Friends was available to stream on Netflix and the series was among the most popular content on the platform the entire time it was there. Unfortunately for Netflix subscribers, the company lost its rights to the show and it disappeared from Netflix’s catalog on January 1, 2020.

Where did Friends go, you ask? Well, it didn’t really go anywhere. For the time being, Friends isn’t available to be streamed legally on any streaming media platform. It’s a bummer, but that’s how things will be until later this year when HBO Max launches. The new HBO service will be the exclusive streaming home to the series moving forward, which means you can’t legally stream Friends anytime in the foreseeable future unless you plan to cough up $15 a month for HBO Max once it launches. Lucky for you, you won’t need to stream the show anymore before you’re about to save a ton of money on the DVDs or Blu-rays!
