Now, Friends isn’t available to stream on Netflix in the US, but it is in many other places around the world.
I’m pretty sure that should Friends have been available to stream in the US, it would be in that number one position on Netflix’s top ten most popular shows.
As it stands, according to FlixPatrol, Friends is sitting in fifth position worldwide.
This is for May 30th and before the Friends Reunion show aired on HBO Max, Friends hadn’t been in the top ten for quite some time.
The show, however, has been a huge success on Netflix around the world.
It was a huge blow for many of Netflix’s US viewers when it was revealed that the show would be leaving the streaming platform in the United States.
This is because it was being moved over to HBO Max by Warner Bros. Television.
Friends is back in Netflix’s top ten most-watched shows worldwide
The show is a Warner Bros. owned show, so it makes sense to have it on their own streaming platform.
Once HBO Max is released in more territories, they’ll end up taking Friends away from Netflix altogether.
I’m pretty sure that this will be a major reason for many people around the world to get a subscription to HBO Max.
As we’ve seen with the Friends Reunion numbers on HBO Max and around the world, the sitcom is still a huge pull.
It’s constantly gaining new viewers and fans, even though it finished 17 years ago.
There’s nothing quite like Friends and the show just won’t stop becoming more and more popular.
There are a bigger number of younger viewers that are finding the show every day.
