Netflix Has A Change Of Heart After Their Decision To Get Rid Of ‘Friends’ Angers The Internet 🙌

Netflix has been streaming the beloved ’90 sitcom Friends since January 2015. In case you hadn’t heard, the series was scheduled to be removed from the Netflix lineup starting January 2019.

Let’s call this episode “The One Where Netflix Admits It Was Wrong.”

The backlash was so intense that Netflix went out of its way to renew its license on one of the most popular shows of all time.

But only through 2019. After that, the series has other plans.

Netflix had a job in reconsidering its decision.

After canceling Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Daredevil — all within a few weeks of each other — could Netflix afford a loss as big as Friends? Possibly not. After fans panicked, Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, told The Hollywood Reporter that the show’s “departure is a rumor.”

Less than a few hours later, the show had another year on the streaming service.

Thank goodness we at least have this. Now let’s see what else we can get Netflix to keep!
