Netflix made the announcement in a very on-brand way that only made us even more sad.
“The One Where We Have To Say Goodbye,” they wrote. “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.”

As stated, Friends is heading to AT&T’s upcoming streaming platform WarnerMedia. Last month, the service revealed plans to incorporate HBO, Cinemax and Warner Bros. into their platform, which will cost $16 to $17 per month.
Needless to say, people had a lot of feelings about it. See some of their responses down below.
All these companies making streaming services and taking them off is gonna make me lose it 😂 First the Office and now Friends. I can only afford so many box sets 🙄

The news comes only a few weeks after we learned The Office was leaving Netflix for good, so we’re all very fragile right now.
The streaming giant announced that the show will be leaving the platform in the near future, sparking a massive outcry on social media.
According to the announcement, NBC is looking to bring the show back home for their own streaming service.
“We’re sad that NBC has decided to take The Office back for its own streaming platform — but members can binge watch the show to their hearts’ content ad-free on Netflix until January 2021,” the tweet reads.

Although the departure of the iconic series has fans up in arms, they’ll still be able to binge for another year and a half with the show coming off in January 2021.
