Netflix threw a lot of money at it but Friends is finally leaving for good. (Well, in six months.)
It was announced on Tuesday that the show will officially be heading to WarnerMedia’s new streaming platform, HBO Max, which will debut in spring 2020. HBO Max will also host CW shows (including upcoming ones like Batwoman), and offer original content from Reese Witherspoon and director/producer Greg Berlanti. Pretty Little Liars and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will also air exclusively on HBO Max.
Friends‘ exit from Netflix has been anticipated since at least January, and another popular show, The Office, is leaving in 2021 for NBCUniversal’s own streaming platform. HBO Max will offer original programming like Dune: The Sisterhood and an animated Gremlins series, as well as upcoming HBO series Lovecraft Country, The Nevers, and a reboot of Perry Mason. Programming from Adult Swim, TruTV, TBS, and more will also be available.
Info about subscription pricing is not yet available, though last month it was reported that an HBO-Cinemax bundle could go for $16-$17 a month.
