Friends fans were disappointed after Netflix cancelled the fan-favorite show from its streaming service.
Netflix first announced to fans that the sitcom would be leaving on 1 January 2020 back in July last year. Before, Netflix had paid US$100 million to stream the sitcom on its platform for the whole of 2019. However, Warner decided to move it to HBO Max.
The removal of the show has outraged Netflix users, who have demanded to keep it on the service, or they would cancel their Netflix subscriptions.
“Please don’t take Friends off your list. Because I will cancel my account,” one fan threatened on Twitter. “They’re taking friends off Netflix so I might as well just cancel it and get Disney+,” another Twitter user wrote.
If you’re living outside of the US, fret it, it appears that the series is still available elsewhere in the world.
