Devoted Friends fans have been wondering for years whether the cast of the iconic ’90s sitcom would reunite for a show reboot. And now they finally have an answer.
Marta Kauffman, who created the hit show, just made her feelings on a reboot clear — and it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, she said, “The show is about a time in your life when your friends are your family. It’s not that time anymore. All we’d be doing is putting those six actors back together, but the heart of the show would be gone.”
She continued, “The show is doing just fine, people love it. [A reunion] could only disappoint. ‘The One Where Everyone’s Disappointed.’”
Kauffman’s partner, David Crane, has also said he is not here for a reunion in any capacity. Last year, in an interview with The Wrap, he made it plain: “Never. We did it! It’s done.”
Jen Aniston, who played Rachel Green, did, however, say she and her female co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow would be down. Still, she noted that the male cast members, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc, are “a little less excited about it for some reason.”
