Looks like we know what we’re doing for the next four weeks…
Though everyone has probably rewatched the series over five (or in actuality, 30) times – it still comes as devastating news to find out that Netflix has announced that after a four-year run, the beloved sitcom will expire on the streaming service on January 1, 2019.
As you can probably imagine, the people of the internet are losing their sh*t!

Word on the street is that the NBC sitcom which ran for 10 seasons is receiving a few offers from multiple streaming services after the announcement. Hulu has been making aggressive bids to become the new streaming-home of shows like Boy Meets World, 30 rock, Seinfeld, and The Gold Girls! Additionally, Warner Brothers – the original studio behind Friends – is planning on launching their own streaming service under owners, AT&T.
We’re not crying…
Our eyes are just burning from staring at back-to-back episodes for too long! 😭
