Netflix has struck a deal with Warner Bros to bring all 10 seasons of Friends to the streaming service.

The sitcom has become televisual wallpaper in recent years, still drawing modest ratings on Comedy Central in the UK despite finishing back in 2004.

Warner Bros boss Kevin Tsujihara told investors that all 236 episodes will be added to its catalogue, initially in the US and Canada.

Friends celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, with its iconic coffee shop Central Perk being recreated in New York complete with orange sofa and Gunther actor James Michael Tyler behind the bar.

Enjoy the plentiful existing episodes, because there won't be any new ones anytime soon.

Asked once and for all whether there would be a reunion and a new series, creator David Crane told Metro recently: "No. Absolutely not. Definitely, definitely not.

"It’s not like we’re not on television. We did everything we wanted to do. We finished it right and put a perfect bow on it. There’s no reason to go back and revisit them."
