​Netflix Appears To Confirm 'Friends' Is Going To Be There For You

If you've never seen Friends, you're either a newly-born child (welcome to the world - and if you're already able to read this then you're incredibly intelligent) or have been living a life like Tom Hanks in Castaway.

If you've not been passing your days on a desert island, growing a serious beard and communicating with a volleyball called 'Willllssssssoon' then you will know that Friends is a TV sitcom series that defined the late 1990s and early 2000s.

And the good news is that it now appears to be coming to Netflix for you to binge-watch to your heart's content if the endless repeats on various networks around the world weren't already enough to satisfy your craving.

With almost every episode taking a title which begins with 'The One Where...', Netflix seems to have teased the news in epic fashion, although this hasn't yet been officially confirmed.

Fans have collectively been losing their shit at the post on Twitter which reads 'The One with the Show Everyone's Been Asking Us to Add'....

In its run from 1994 to 2004, US show Friends, which featured around the lives of six New York City residents, became a smash hit and made megastars of its cast, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Courteney Cox.

At the peak of its 10-season run, the actors were reportedly paid $1 million (£740,000) per episode for their appearances in seasons nine and 10. That was obviously a few years ago but, taking into account inflation, that still comes out at a shitload of cash.

Since it ended 13 years ago, fans have also been clamouring for a reunion and the stars have never completely ruled it out in various get togethers. However, it remains to be seen if a return of the show will happen one day.

In the meantime, we can just hope that it's true that Friends is coming to Netflix to be there for you and all your nostalgic needs.
