Netflix Hints 'Friends' Is Finally Coming To Its UK Streaming Service


Netflix has dropped a massive hint that it’s about to make every ‘Friends’ fan’s dreams come true in time for the New Year. 

That’s because it looks like classic sitcom is heading for the streaming service in the UK.

Netflix posted a massive clue it has snapped up the rights to the show on Twitter, after years of fans crying out for it to happen. 

The UK account tweeted a parody of Friends’ episode titles, writing: “The One with the Show Everyone’s Been Asking Us to Add.”

Naturally, this was music to many fans’ ears...

‘Friends’ originally aired in the UK on Channel 4 between 1994 and 2004. 

They continued to show repeats on the main channel and sister station E4 until 2011 when Comedy Central bought the UK rights, and the network continues to air two episodes twice daily. 

It remains unclear if or how the Comedy Central deal would be affected should Netflix do begin streaming ‘Friends’.
