The American situation comedy television series Friends was broadcast in 236 episodes over 10 seasons from 1994 to 2004. The series was created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, and produced by Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television for NBC (National Broadcasting Company). The series began with the pilot episode, which was broadcast on September 22, 1994. Each episode is on average 22 minutes long, for a 30-minute timeslot, though some episodes in season seven were produced for a "Super-Sized" 40-minute timeslot to compete with the CBS reality series Survivor.

The series narrative follows six friends living and working in New York City: Rachel Green, Monica Geller, Phoebe Buffay, Joey Tribbiani, Chandler Bing and Ross Geller, played by Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer respectively. All episodes were filmed at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California; no first unit location filming was done in New York. However, the fourth season finale, "The One with Ross' Wedding", was taped on location in London, England in front of a British studio audience.

In addition to the 236 episodes, three specials were produced. In Friends: The Stuff You've Never Seen, broadcast on NBC after the first airing of "The One with Joey's New Brain" (February 15, 2001), Conan O'Brien hosted a light-hearted discussion with the cast from the Central Perk set, and introduced outtakes from past episodes. The two-part retrospective special The One with All the Other Ones was broadcast before the one-hour series finale "The Last One" on May 6, 2004, and features clips from past episodes and interviews with the cast. All episodes have been released on DVD.
