‘Friends’ is coming to HBO Max

But alas, with the arrival of HBO Max, fans can dive back into the fun with Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Ross (David Schwimmer), Joey (Matt LeBlanc), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), Monica (Courteney Cox), and Chandler (Matthew Perry).

The streamer will carry all 10 seasons of the show. It will also air a brand-new reunion special, in which the entire cast will return to reminisce about their time on the series.

‘The Big Bang Theory’

Whether they’re talking about Schroedinger’s cat or Game of Thrones, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and his friends — Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Penny (Kaley Cuoco), Raj (Kunal Nayyar), and Howard (Simon Helberg) — will be on HBO Max to dole out the laughs. 

All 12 seasons of the Emmy Award-winning comedy, The Big Bang Theory, will be available on HBO Max at launch.

‘Two and a Half Men’

It’s been almost five years since Two and a Half Men ended. But for those who want to catch up with Charlie (Charlie Sheen), Alan (Jon Cryer), Jake (Angus T. Jones), and Walden (Ashton Kutcher), HBO Max will carry all 12 seasons of the show.

HBO Max will carry ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’

The popular ‘90s sitcom stars Will Smith as a Philadelphia teen who moves to Bel-Air to live with his aunt Vivian (Janet Hubert-Whitten/Daphne Maxwell Reid), uncle Phil (James Avery), and cousins Carlton, Ashley (Tatiana M. Ali), and Hilary (Karyn Parsons).

‘The West Wing’

Before Scandal and Designated Survivor, viewers turned to The West Wing for presidential palace intrigue. The highly-acclaimed, Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning drama stars Martin Sheen, Bradley Whitford, Rob Lowe, and Allison Janney.

Seasons 1 to 7 will be available to stream on HBO Max.

‘Pretty Little Liars’

Ashley Benson, Holly Marie Combs, and Ian Harding also star on the series. The streamer will carry all seven seasons of Pretty Little Liars.

‘Gossip Girl’ will also be on HBO Max
