On Dec. 1, streaming company Netflix announced the removal of popular NBC sitcom “Friends” on Jan. 1, 2019.

“Friends” is a popular T.V. show about a group of six friends (Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Ross and Rachel) who all live in the same apartment complex in New York while experiencing life, love and friendship. The show aired on NBC from 1994 through 2004.

The show was first uploaded onto Netflix in 2015. Although the streaming platform has no data on the amount of streams the show has, New York Magazine made a prediction the show would be the most popular on Netflix.

After the announcement was made about the removal, fans were highly upset, causing an uproar on Twitter threatening to cancel subscriptions.

In order to keep the customer’s happy, Netflix has made a $100-million deal with WarnerMedia to keep the show.

Jennifer Aniston, who played Rachel on the show, is happy to see the show is still popular and has a large enough audience to keep the show and facilitate a million-dollar deal.

“I think it says a lot about the show. Especially since it takes place during a different time where it’s so different from now,” Aniston said.
