The end times are nigh. Friends is leaving Netflix, and it is not coming back. As of 2020 the Streaming Wars will be upon us, and various studios are retaking their content to launch on their own streaming service ventures. That has left Netflix facing a brand new challenge: landing distribution deals for top-shelf content. Well, with The Office and Friends both leaving Netflix in subsequent years, users are definitely feeling some kind of way about it. As you can see below, Netflix users are downright freaking out about the fact that Friends is only hours away from leaving the service (at the time of writing this).
