Ah, “Friends”. The 1994 till 2004 hit comedy TV series that propelled its central cast (Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer) to international fame. For us fans, it ended just as soon as it begun – and we admit, we miss it.
After being off the air for almost a decade, Friends suddenly began trending on Twitter on Tuesday night as rumours hit the web about a possible Friends reunion in 2014. Apparently, an NBC source confirmed to American channel E! that early discussions were being had about the possibility, although there was no “forward motion” on the project yet.
However, just as soon as they got our hopes up, the rumours were quickly slammed.
Another NBC Source additionally told E! Online that the supposed reunion was not true. After all, Friends executive producer Kevin S Bright mentioned last year that he wouldn’t support a movie version of the show, saying that Friends was made to be an intimate show in your living room. He also added that there would need to be a reason to justify the reunion.
Aww, shucks. Us missing the cast ain’t good enough a reason to justify a possible Friends reunion?
