Fans know that the Friends Thanksgiving episodes are some of the best episodes of the series, and they’re all currently available to stream online. Out of the 236 episodes of Friends, 9 of them center around Thanksgiving (one for each season except Season 2) and feature some of the show’s most memorable moments.
If you’re not interested in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special, or football games, a Friends Thanksgiving episode marathon might be your go-to this year. And with streaming available for the entire series, it’s easier than ever to watch all of the Friends Thanksgiving episodes online.
With Chandler cracking jokes from inside a wooden box at the dinner table, Monica and Joey getting turkeys stuck on their head, Rachel making that awful Shepherd’s Pie Trifle, the group getting locked out on the roof, and of course, all of the flashbacks to Thanksgivings from past years throughout their friendships.
Some of the scenes from these episodes have become iconic, and it’s no wonder why so many fans return to this series around the holidays to rewatch their favorite moments with these characters.
How to stream Friends Thanksgiving episodes online
The entire Friends series is currently available to stream on HBO Max, and that includes all of the Friends Thanksgiving episodes. There is not currently a playlist of these episodes together on the platform, so you will need to navigate to each of the episodes individually.
Because Friends always started airing new seasons in the fall, the Thanksgiving episodes always fell around the same place in the episode order. In Seasons 1, 3, 6 and 8, the holiday episode is Episode 9. And in Seasons 2, 4, 7, 9 and 10, you’ll want to watch Episode 8.
HBO Max currently offers plans with and without ads, and while you can also add HBO Max as an add-on to your Hulu account, you won’t save any money by doing so. HBO Max also offers other popular series with Thanksgiving episodes, like The Big Bang Theory and The Sopranos.
