For those stuck inside and desperately wishing Friends was still available to stream on Netflix, we have some good news. You can get your Central Perk coffee brewed and put on your comfy clothes, because TBS is getting ready to kick off a Friends marathon that will feature every episode of the beloved sitcom, from beginning to end.

Although the coronavirus pandemic has put an indefinite hold on filming of the Friends reunion special, meaning we won't get to see it HBO Max launches in May after all, a full marathon of all 236 episodes is pretty much the next best thing we could ask for.

TBS will kick off its Friends marathon beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, April 20 and will air six hours of episodes per day each weekday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. So just how long will this go on, you ask? Nearly a month! The unforgettable series finale will air on Monday, May 18.
