As of today, the 90s-00s sitcom has moved to WarnerMedia's streaming service, HBO Max. Not one of the 236 episodes of 'Friends' remains on Netflix stateside.
Many fans of the series took to Twitter to mourn the loss.

Good news for us though. If you're living in Ireland or the UK, you can still binge and re-watch the misadventures of Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler and Joey as much as you like.
They'd be mad to get rid of it since it's proven to be one of the streaming service's most popular shows in the UK. (Notably, it was added New Year's Day 2018, so happy 2nd anniversary 'Friends' on Netflix Ireland/UK!)
Still there's no guarantee it'll be on Netflix forever. After all, the service stated it's only staying "for now" and content is constantly being removed and shifted along. Plus HBO Max and Disney+, among others, are entering the streaming service competition now and taking their productions back from Netflix for themselves.
