It looks like "Friends" isn't leaving Netflix after all. Similarly, Anniston told InStyle that she fantasises about a Friends reboot in this new era of TV where "so many shows are being successfully rebooted".

The New York Times reported Tuesday that Netflix will pay around $100 million to parent company WarnerMedia to keep the show another year - $30 million a year more than what it was paying before.

Protesting to keep Friends on Netflix is futile, because Friends' exit is a cold, hard business decision. And while Netflix squashed the cancellation rumors for now, it is widely believed the show will eventually move on to a streaming service to be launched by WarnerMedia next year, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Netflix confirmed Friends will remain available to stream in the USA through the end of 2019. Meanwhile, fans of the show went into full freak-out mode over the weekend when someone spotted a note on the show's Netflix page that said it would be leaving the service on January 1st. But it came with a lofty price tag: Netflix shelled out $118 million (pennies for the service today) for the streaming rights and to digitally remaster every single episode for HD streaming capabilities. This wasn't entirely out of the blue-WarnerMedia intends to launch its own streaming service at the end of 2019, and most assumed that Warner Bros TV-owned Friends would be a major part of that service at launch.

Don't expect Friends to be gone from a streaming service for long.

While the battle might have been won, the next one might be far more hard to fight.

So get your last binge of all ten seasons of Friends in now, because we don't know when it will be back.
