The streaming site has soared in popularity, partly due to hosting cult classics with everything from Skins to Stranger Things.
Not forgetting the ultimate sitcom, Friends.
Fans mourned the TV show when its decade-long reign came to an end in 2004, and once again when it was announced it would be pulled from E4 in 2011.
Luckily, other channels picked it up and Friends fans rejoiced when it appeared on Netflix in 2014.
But it could soon disappear.
Warner Bros, which partly produced the show, announced it would be launching its own subscription video on demand (SVOD) service.
And it’s believed it will take its big-hitter, Friends, back from Netflix.
Media analyst, Rich Greenfield, from BTIG Research, told Deadline: “Content like Friends is likely to disappear from Netflix in 2019 as WarnerMedia launches its own SVOD service.”
Figures from Parrot Analytics reveal that, despite ending ten years ago, the show is still the third most popular sitcom in the US, behind Brooklyn Nine Nine and The Big Bang Theory.
In response, fans have been venting their sadness online, with one person tweeting: “No Friends no Netflix.”
Another said: “They might be taking Friends off of netflix as if I needed more negativity in my life like wow why is life doing me dirty like this.”
A third fan claimed: “If Netflix stops streaming Friends I'm deleting my account.”
Time to binge-watch all ten seasons while you can.
The executive producer of Friends previously revealed the cult show nearly ended a year earlier – on THIS cliff-hanger.
He also revealed Rachel and Ross were never meant to go on a break… and it changes everything.
