Friends is leaving Netflix in January 2019

According to the site, Friends will only remain on Netflix until January 1, 2019.

At the time of this writing, however, that expiration date has disappeared from the show's Netflix page.

However, the the "Jan. 1" removal date has now been deleted and Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos told The Hollywood Reporter on Monday that the show's "departure is a rumor".

The idea that Friends would leave Netflix for WarnerMedia's new streaming service, meanwhile, is of course not a radical idea either.

Netflix first bowed all 10 seasons of "Friends", encompassing all 236 episodes of the show, to subscribers in the US and Canada in January 2015, under a deal with Warner Bros.

It's OK to eat some romaine again, say USA health officials
As of Monday, the FDA said 43 people became ill in 12 states due to the outbreak, and another 22 people were sickened in Canada. The investigation continues into where the recent romaine lettuce containing a strain of E. coli bacteria originated.

With everyone launching their own streaming platforms, Netflix will be losing more and more movies and shows, and become a less desirable streaming destination. unless they can produce more quality original programming.

After an internet uproar over the possibility of "Friends" leaving Netflix at the end of 2018, the streaming giant announced a renewal to keep the sitcom through the end of next year.

Request for comment from Netflix was not immediately returned. Netflix didn't use to be in such fierce competition with companies like Warner Bros. and Disney, but it is now.

So use this chance to marathon as many Friends episodes as you can. Meanwhile, fans of the show went into full freak-out mode over the weekend when someone spotted a note on the show's Netflix page that said it would be leaving the service on January 1st.

The Warner Bros. Television series will likely be included on AT&T's upcoming service, which is expected to launch in 2019.
