Here’s your chance to spend Thanksgiving with your favorite Friends. Warner Brothers has negotiated a deal with local stations across the country to air popular Thanksgiving-themed episodes.
“We’re excited for ‘The One Where Our Local Television Partners Offer Curated Thanksgiving Friends Episodes and Marathons,’ which are sure to delight fans during their Friendsgiving holiday celebrations,” said Lisa Gregorian, Warner Bros. Television Group president and chief marketing officer, in a statement.
Thanks to streaming services Friends has won over new fans and coupled with the fact that the series is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its 1994 debut on NBC. Airing in syndication since 1998, the series will make its new streaming home on WarnerMedia’s upcoming subscription streaming service on HBO Max.
This is a great way to escape family drama or avoid those relatives who want to talk about politics this Thanksgiving. The marathon will air on stations across the country, including in all top-ten markets, reaching 42 million homes.
