The Friends Co-Creator Has Made A Massive Decision About The Reunion
Everybody remembers where they were when news of a Friends reunion swept across the internet last week. Much like with the Apollo 11 moon landing of 1969, there was a feeling that nothing would ever be the same again. That we’d arrived upon a cultural zenith – a moment that would loom and lay shade upon everything that came after it.
And we were hit by the stark realisation that this wasn’t going to be the perfect reunion we had all hoped for.
But still, it fired our imaginations and recharged some long-dormant hope. Just because the real reunion isn’t happening now, does that mean it will never happen? The fans wanted it - and none of the cast had talked against it - so was there a chance?
Over to Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman, talking to US Weekly:
"For me, why go back to that territory again? I get to do on [my new show] Grace what I loved about Friends, which is, make a show that's got some hope and joy to it and explore something completely new. That was about a certain time in your life, and I had just left [the] Friends time of my life. This is about the time of my life I'm looking towards. I will say there will never be a Friends reunion movie."
But still, stranger things have happened at sea – and if there's enough demand, we can see Marta changing her mind. And by demand, we mean riots. Across every nation on Earth. So pick up a flaming pitchfork and get to it guys, time is of the essence!*
*Comedy Central UK in no way endorses rioting and takes no responsibility for any criminal consequence of this article. Unless it's a Friends reunion. We'd totally take credit for that.
