They’re adding all seasons of friends and cast away on Netflix in January. Looks like I won’t get any school work done now. — Nicholas Winters (@winters_nick) December 21, 2014
However, the fact that millions of people will be reunited with their old “friends” at the Central Perk coffee shop in New York seems to be sparking a lot of excited streamers as well — especially since all 10 seasons are being released at the same time.
honestly the best thing about 2015 coming is that all seasons of Friends are going to be on Netflix
