Unfortunately, no one told us life was gonna be this way. For 10 long, Friends-less years, we’ve been relegated to DVD box sets and syndication like cavemen if we wanted a fix from Central Perk, but no longer. Fortunately, salvation has come thanks to the patron saint of streaming content, Netflix.

On Wednesday, the entertainment giant announced that come Jan. 1, every episode of Friends would be available streaming. The news was dispatched via Twitter, and included a video of The Rembrandts playing an acoustic version of the show’s theme “I’ll Be There For You,” which was filmed at Central Perk Pop Up in New York last week.

They will all be there for you, Jan.1, 2015

So come New Year’s Day, ditch the Rose Bowl and nurse those New Year’s hangovers watching all 10 seasons of the show.
