The speculations of a Friends pullout by January 2019 started this year when announcements of WarnerMedia launching its own streaming service were made.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, fans still have at least a year to hang out with their beloved Friends, since the WarnerMedia platform will only be launched late 2019.
Even Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said the show's "departure is a rumor."
All 10 seasons of Friends arrived on Netflix in January 2015, under a deal with Warner Bros. It has been one of the most popular shows on Netflix to date, ranking in the top 10 most viewed TV shows for 12 months ending in September 2017. – Rappler.com
