The reason for that is that ‘Friends’ will be on HBO Max – WarnerMedia’s streaming service starting in 2020.
Robert Greenblatt, WarnerMedia chairman said –
“HBO Max will bring together the diverse riches of WarnerMedia to create programming and user experiences not seen before in a streaming platform. HBO’s world-class programming leads the way, the quality of which will be the guiding principle for our new array of Max Originals, our exciting acquisitions, and the very best of the Warner Bros. libraries, starting with the phenomenon that is Friends.”
The show “The Office” will be also taken down in January 2021 according to Netflix statement – “We’re sad that NBC has decided to take ‘The Office’ back for its own streaming platform – but members can binge watch the show to their hearts’ content ad-free on Netflix until January 2021.”
The Epic show ‘Stranger Things 3’ broke Netflix’s record for most watch show in the first 4 days on air. The huge streaming service posted on Twitter on Monday afternoon that season 3 of ‘Stranger Things’ has been watched over 40 million times (in over 40 million accounts!!!) since it aired on the 4th of July and over 18 million finished the whole season – INSANE!
40.7 million household accounts have been watching the show since its July 4 global launch — more than any other film or series in its first four days. And 18.2 million have already finished the entire season.
Netflix hasn’t confirmed the news yet but you can be sure
the new season will be out soon.
Although Netflix got lots of bad comments regarding the
content of the show, they have been very carful and put on a warning before
each episode and the cast is involved in projects to increase awareness.
Brian Yorkey, the creator of the show, talked about the
importance of dealing with such harsh issues: “We know that sexual assault
is hugely under-reported, sexual assault with male victims is exponentially
more under-reported than even sexual assault in general. And as a show that had
already said we are going to tell the stories of sexual assault victims and
survivors, and we’re going to tell them in a way that is unflinching and
honest, we said, wow, not only does this seem a credible story to be told but
in a way we felt there was an imperative to tell it. Because no-one was telling
it.” He continued “That was a story that wasn’t being told, it was a story
that is happening in high schools today and we felt we not only had the
opportunity but the responsibility to tell it.”
The last season was about the trial of Hannah Baker’s suicide.
We will have to wait a bit more to see how things turn around.
Netflix will make an experiment for a shuffle feature for some specific shows -this new feature will select a random episode from certain shows.
From the subtext we can understand it will be like the shuffle feature for music in a playlist. This new feature will help the viewers pick an episode to watch when they are not sure which episode to watch. The test of this pilot will include shows like The Office, New Girl, Our Planet and Arrested Development and more.
Netflix spokesperson confirmed the experiment in a statement – “We are testing the ability for members to play a random episode from different TV series on the Android mobile app. These tests typically vary in length of time and by region, and may not become permanent.”
There will be a new row in the Netflix menu which called “Play a Random Episode.” Once the viewers click on a thumbnail, a random episode plays. If you want to test this feature, look for a red “shuffle” icon.
The Android Police publication, which monitors Netflix developments on Android devices was the first to notice this experiment.
This new feature might be related to Disney’s streaming service.
Marta just broke millions of hearts by saying there will never be a show reboot…
On an interview with the Rolling Stone magazine Kauffman said that a reunion episode won’t hold the hype of the show’s committed fans and might disappoint them.
When trying to explain her point of view she said: “One, the show is about a time in your life when your friends are your family. It’s not that time anymore. All we’d be doing is putting those six actors back together, but the heart of the show would be gone.”
She continued: “Two, I don’t know what good it does us. The show is going just fine, people love it. [A reunion] could only disappoint. ‘The One Where Everyone’s Disappointed’.”
4 years ago Netflix made a big move acquiring Friends, which was debut on 1994, in a massive deal – 118 million dollars!
Marta shared her experience with the show airing in Netflix – her daughter’s friends asked if she is familiar with ‘that new show’ that lately launched on Netflix.
It’s not only Marta who doesn’t like the idea of a reunion – Matt LeBlanc (better known as Joey Tribbiani) also said it will never happen.
Matt LeBlanc said with Brisbane’s 97.3FM Bianca, Terry & Bob: “I understand that people really want to see that reunion. But that show was about a finite period in these six characters’ lives, between 20 and 30.” He continued: “I think everyone’s imagination of what they (the characters) are doing is better.”
Moreover, The 50-years-old actor hinted that there is more than one member of the original cast would be unwilling to be in a reunion. “It’s not any one person,” he claimed. “I think it’s better to just leave it. I think it’s something that doesn’t come along very often. That was a really special thing, and the stars aligned right for that.”
David Schwimmer, known as Ross Geller, said 8 years ago: “I really like how the show ended. I really love how it ended. I think it was kind of a perfect ending, and I can’t see any good reason to revisit it.”
Although season two of the The Punisher released last month, but rumors about canceling already started to spread like mushrooms after the rain.
Now we know, according to Netflix the show won’t return for season 3.
Netflix said in a statement to LADbible: “Marvel’s The Punisher will not return for a third season on Netflix. Showrunner Steve Lightfoot, the terrific crew, and exceptional cast including star Jon Bernthal, delivered an acclaimed and compelling series for fans, and we are proud to showcase their work on Netflix for years to come.”
Apparently, The Punisher won’t be the only show that canceled. It seems like Marvel’s Jessica Jones won’t return after its third season. As Netflix stated – “In addition, in reviewing our Marvel programming, we have decided that the upcoming third season will also be the final season for Marvel’s Jessica Jones”.
Frank Castle, The Punisher, played by Jon Bernthal posted on Instagram a suspicious message – That according to fans may confirms the cancellation of the show.
Jon posted: “To all who have served. All who know loss. All who love and understand Frank and his pain. It has been an honour to walk in his boots. I’m endlessly grateful to the comic fans and the men and women of the Armed Services and law enforcement community who Frank means so much to. Thank you to the USMC and all the wonderful soldiers who trained me. Go hard. Be safe.”

Netflix’s latest horror show, The Haunting of Hill House This modern reimagining of the Shirley Jackson novel follows a fractured family confronts haunting memories, Flashing between past and present, of their old home and the terrifying events that drove them from it.
One of the ‘Haunting Of Hill House’ cast member is the Star Of ‘E.T.’, Henry Thomas, who played little and the show’s fans are losing their mind- especially because watchers were so distracted by the hidden ghosts peppered about the place and the fact that they were crapping themselves with fear, that many of them didn’t notice this major detail- Littel Elliott from E.T. is an adult now and took the place of the young dad in the Netflix series.
The social networks were floating with comments about the discovery. One Twitter user wrote, “Finding out that the younger Dad from Haunting of Hill House is Elliot from E.T. has shaken me to my core,”

Friends is an American television sitcom that we all know and love even before the days of Netflix, Amazon Prime, and binge-watching series. This was when a sitcom, named Friends (which aired on NBC from September 22, 1994, to May 6, 2004), reigned supreme, including one particular American series that soon became one of the most iconic TV shows of its time. It means today it’s Friends 24th birthday!!!!
Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California was where the show was filmed and took place at. All 10 seasons of this loveable sitcom ranked within the top ten of the final television season ratings; extremely reaching the number one spot in its eighth season. The series finale was aired on May 6, 2004, watched by around 52.5 million American viewers, making it the fifth most-watched series finale in television history, and the most-watched television episode of the 2000s decade.
During that decade, Friends sitcom told us the story of a group of pals living in New York City, with Ross, Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Phoebe and Joey, starring Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer, all guiding us through the ups and downs of relationships, careers, babies, big city life and, the important of all- friendship.
Although Friends ended in 2004, the cast is still making bank- some cast members’ careers after the show were more lucrative than others. Individually, friends stars net worth starts at $70 million, with the highest earners reaching $220 million.
The show’s lowest-valued cast member would be Lisa Kudrow. Back in the day, she played Phoebe, the quirky one in the group, and though Friends was one of her biggest roles, she’s still active in Hollywood has been on such shows as The Comeback, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Grace.
Next up is the one with his famous line: “How you doin’?”- who else than our beloved Matt LeBlanc. His recent stint as a Top Gear host may have been brief, but his net worth reportedly stands at a cool $80 million. He played Joey In the series, the goofy (and stupid with the big heart) character.
Matthew Perry stands firmly next to his co-star, LeBlanc, and onscreen roommate, also worth a nice $80 million. Matthew has found some success in films and also with his stage work, after playing the permanently wisecracking Chandler.
David Schwimmer, Dr. Ross Geller, should be with an estimated worth of $85 million after playing the smart guy in the group, the dinosaur lover- and Monica Geller brother.
The next one is Courtney Cox that her net worth is slightly more north of her co-stars’! Cox comes in a comfortable $120 million. Since leaving behind the clean-obsessive (OCD much?) Monica, she stars in Cougar Town for six years, and also had a hand in many film and TV projects since then.
Cox and ex-husband, David Arquette, own their own production company, Coquette Productions. In August, they announced that Cox will join the cast of the Shameless next season (US version).
Friend Highest valued cast member is Jennifer Aniston, who reigns with a tidy $220 million net worth. Aniston isn’t only known for her role as Friend group member Rachel Green, she also known for numerous Hollywood movie roles, for her marriage to Brad Pitt (her ex-husband) and Justin Theroux.
