Friends is the very definition of a powerhouse television series. Not only did the show become the most must-watch show on TV during its ten-season run, not only did the series and its characters pierce mainstream pop culture, but Friends still remains immensely popular to this very day – a massive 17 years since the show aired for the final time.
Here in 2021, there are still countless people forever rushing to watch the numerous Friends re-runs and blocked-out showings of the series that frequent TV stations and streaming services across the globe.
