“So no one told you life was gonna be this way?”

The very first line of Friends theme song was enough to justify how it was one of the most relatable shows ever. Just like the characters, our jobs were jokes, we were a little broke and our love life was hanging between being dead and alive. But no matter whatever happened, we would always turn to our friends, because they were always there for us.

Friends first aired in September 1994 when a runaway bride entered a coffee shop and ended in May 2004 when the same girl got off the plane to stay with the love of her life forever. Those 10 years had love, laughter, drama, pain, happiness, and sadness confined in them. Those 10 years were the time which connected us with six beautiful human beings, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross, who were different but weirdly amazing in their own way. We all felt a special connection to each and every one of them because deep down we all had been searching for such kind of friendship in our life.

Not only this, the show was neither too dark nor too complex. It was just a simple soft comedy which you can enjoy anytime you want. You are happy, watch Friends. You’re sad, watch Friends. You have nothing to do, watch Friends. Friends is the best stress buster ever. That’s one of the major reasons that the show achieved success after it ended. Viewers started watching the re-runs of the show over and over again which finally forced Netflix to bring in the sitcom in 2018.

There was a surprising increase in Netflix viewers after that, but all good things come to an end, and that’s what going to happen to Friends.

In 2020, Netflix will be pulling Friends. Apparently, WarnerMedia will be starting their own streaming (which is forcing Netflix to pull the sitcom) titled HBO Max. Netflix announced this via their Twitter account.

Friends stars Jennifer Aniston as Rachel, Courteney Cox as Monica, Lisa Kudrow as Phoebe, Matt LeBlanc as Joey, Matthew Perry as Chandler and David Schwimmer as Ross.
