Bad news for “Friends” fans. Starting next year, they won’t be there for you like they’ve been there before.

Netflix is apparently pulling the show starting on Jan. 1, 2019. Viewers started taking notice over the weekend.

People on Twitter were quick to voice their disappointment with Netflix for removing the beloved show.

Some claim they are going to cancel their subscription to the streaming service.

One fan even started a petition to try and get Netflix to keep the show.

“Friends” aired on NBC for 10 years from 1994 to 2004. Netflix obtained the rights to stream the sitcom in late 2014. It first became available on Jan. 1, 2015.

The show has a wide audience made up of both longtime fans who watched when it originally aired, and a new generation of viewers who watched for the first time on Netflix.

Netflix has not yet responded to any of its disappointed fans. No reason has been given as to why the show is being removed but many are speculating that its due to new streaming services being introduced, like the WarnerMedia service being launched in 2019.
