2020 is going to bring about a lot of changes. Not only is it a new year, but it's also a new decade. Friends is being taken off of Netflix. That ball drops on January 1, and suddenly, when you type "Friends" into Netflix's search bar, you're going to get a lot of sad titles of things "Related to Friends." That might seem like a tragedy, sure, but not all is lost. There's a ton coming to Netflix in January that will make you feel better.
Netflix's January 2020 releases list is out and it's pretty epic.
Come January 1, you'll never want to get off of your couch again. Too much tempting stuff is headed to Netflix.
