Netflix has good news for “Friends” fans. Despite rumors, the sitcom will still be there for you like it’s been there before, even in the new year.

Over the weekend, viewers started seeing a notification on Netflix showing “Friends” would only be available until Jan. 1, 2019.

But Netflix put an end to the rumors on Monday and tweeted that the show would stay on the streaming service throughout 2019.

When reports initially surfaced indicating the beloved show would no longer be available, people on Twitter were quick to freak out.

Some claim they are going to cancel their subscription to the streaming service.

One fan even started a petition to try and get Netflix to keep the show.

“Friends” aired on NBC for 10 years from 1994 to 2004. Netflix obtained the rights to stream the sitcom in late 2014. It first became available on Jan. 1, 2015.

The show has a wide audience made up of both longtime fans who watched when it originally aired, and a new generation of viewers who watched for the first time on Netflix.
