The company will pay $ 100 million per year for exclusive screening of this show. Comedy became the most watched TV series on Netflix in 2018.
It is also known that the Netflix broadcasting grid will leave the cult series «friends». That being said, the company previously said the loss of two popular shows would free up its budget for more original content..
