Friends, the hit NBC sitcom, will soon be streaming exclusively on Netflix.

'Friends' Headed To Netflix

Netflix announced the exclusive Friends deal on Wednesday with a video that features the Friends' theme song, The Rembrandts’ “I’ll Be There For You,” and James Michael Tyler reprising his role of Gunther and making coffee in the background. At the end of their performance, Gunther delivers two mugs of coffee emblazoned with “I Heart Netflix" to them.

“They will all be there for you, Jan. 1, 2015 in the U.S. and Canada,” Netflix captioned the announcement video.

All ten of Friends' seasons (236 episodes/ 83 viewing hours) will be available on the streaming network.

Friends, which went off the air in 2004, has been making a lot of headlines over the last few months, as this year marks the 20th year since the show's premiere and the 10th since its series finale. In celebration of the milestone, a pop-up replica of the show's hangout Central Perk has been running since Sept. 17 and giving out free cups of coffee to diehard fans. Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow even obliged Jimmy Kimmel in running lines in a mock-up of their on-set apartment on his late night show.
