Great news for fans of Friends- the iconic 1990's sitcom is headed to Netflix. Beginning on New Years Day 2015, all 236 episodes of the show will begin airing. If that isn't cool enough, then you'll be thrilled to know that those special "lost episodes" will also be available. Apparently in several episodes that never aired, Rachel and Joey actually got together, and now fans of the show will have a chance to check those out as well.
Friends ran for ten seasons on NBC, from 1994-2004 and it focused on the trials and tribulations of six close friends living in NYC. Viewers' tuned in weekly to spend 30 minutes with Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey and Phoebe. Ten years after filming its' last episode, Friends still does extremely well in syndication so it makes perfect sense that Netflix would finally snatch it up as well.
Over the last few years, Netflix has gone from being a company that provides live streaming to a new network that now produces its' own successful programming. House of Cards put Netflix on the map as a force to be reckoned with, and talented celebs like Adam Sandler and Chelsea Handler have decided to bring their creative projects directly to the company rather than taking the typical paths towards television networks or big movie house production companies. Obviously Netflix is the new way to go, and so it naturally should be offering up old favorites like Friends, don't you think?
Are you excited to learn that those lost episodes of Joey and Rachel's romance are finally going to be seen by millions no doubt? Will you be tuning in to Netflix for your Friends fix next January?
