Could we BE any more sad?

After ten years of being there for us, Friends left our screens in 2004 – leaving a Central Perk shaped hole in our hearts – and we’re still not over it.

Yes it may have been 15 years since Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Monica, Phoebe and Joey made their last appearances but it still feels like it was just yesterday.

We’re still deeply invested in Rachel and Ross’ tumultuous relationship, we’ve never given up hope on Parker (Alec Baldwin) coming back into our lives, and we can’t believe how quickly the Friends children have grown up. Are we the only ones confused by our feelings for Ben now that he’s grown up and starring in Riverdale?

But it’s not Cole Sprouse who became a conversation topic this week. Instead, it’s Netflix, the streaming platform that gives us all the Friends episodes, 15 years later.

But not for long, with WarnerMedia, (owners of the sitcom’s distribution rights) announcing that they will remove all 236 Friends episodes from Netflix next year, moving them to HBO Max, a new streaming service that is in the works.

Unsurprisingly, Netflix is disappointed, taking to twitter to comment on the news.

‘The One Where We Have To Say Goodbye,’ they captioned the post. ‘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.’
