Reruns of the popular television sitcom Friends will move in early 2020 from Netflix Inc in the US to a new streaming service from AT&T Inc's WarnerMedia called HBO Max, WarnerMedia announced on Tuesday (Jul 9).

The service also will include original programming from producers including Reese Witherspoon and shows from the Warner Bros library. Riverdale producer Greg Berlanti will also work on four movies in the young adult genre. 

According to Variety, HBO Max will have some 10,000 hours of content, including all episodes of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Pretty Little Liars (which will also be leaving Netflix) and new Riverdale spinoff, Katy Keene.

Netflix US sent a farewell message on social media for the hit 90s sitcom, spoofing its episode titles by saying "The One Where We Have To Say Goodbye."
