Netflix Newcomers For January Include Bad Boys II, Cast Away And Friends: The Complete Series


What better way to ring in the New Year than to spend time with Joey, Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler and Phoebe? That’s the question Netflix has posed to its subscribers across North America and Canada after all ten seasons of Friends arrived on the streaming service on New Year’s Day.

Heralding no less than 238 episodes of the beloved sitcom — which ran from 1994 up until 2004 — fans will be left spoilt for choice, and it’s an addition that will no doubt instigate its fair share of late-night marathons.

Friends isn’t the only new addition to the company’s online selection though, with the likes of Bad Boys II, Cast Away and Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas also cropping up from January 1 onwards. From that point on, Netflix also has plans to introduce several new titles incrementally. For action devotees, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit will make its bow tomorrow, January 3, while fans of Michael Fassbender can look forward to his wonderful and eclectic performance in Frank when Lenny Abrahamson’s flick arrives on January 8.

Alongside Friends, here’s the comprehensive list of all the newcomers heading to Netflix throughout the course of January:
