No Friends Reunion, Apparently, they won’t be there for us after all. Contrary to rumors of a reunion, the “Friends” cast will not reunite, NBC confirms to Entertainment Weekly. What started out as a one-off reunion and quickly grew into an entire season, is now decidedly nada. Fans of the popular NBC sitcom were desperately hoping that the rumors were true. The buzz began months ago after ruminations of a Thanksgiving 2014 reunion special began and set social media sites ablaze with hope, and really caught fire after a major Latin America news outlet reported that NBC had confirmed a new full-season order of the sitcom.
But on Monday, “Friends” co-creator Marta Kauffman crushed fans’ dreams when she said without a doubt, “I’m going to clear this up — it’s not happening,” Kauffman told E! on the red carpet of the Lifetime TV movie “Call Me Crazy.” “‘Friends’ was about that time in your life when your friends are your family and once you have a family, there’s no need anymore.”
And Wednesday, NBC confirmed her sentiments.
So, we’ll just have to continue to watch reruns of the “Rachel ‘do” on TBS, hum the theme song silently in our heads, and sip coffee in Starbucks by our lonesome because Ross, Rachel, Phoebe and the gang aren’t getting together any time soon. Well, our mother did warn us that there would be days like these.
Tell us: Are you sad there is not going to be a reunion? Do you still have hope that the gang will get back together at Central Perk one day?
