Fans of the hit TV show, Friends would love to see a reunion but it will never happen according to its co-creator. Marta Kauffman cleared up the rumors that have been circulating this week from a recent interview. Last year, a photoshopped poster circulated the net featuring a picture of the signature couch from Friends, with the caption "Friends, The One with the Reunion". According to the false poster, the Friends reunion would happen on Thanksgiving Day, 2014.
The rumor of the cast coming back together will remain a hopeful wish among Friends fanatics. There is not truth whatsoever to the rumor that the show was coming back for another season. Kauffman overheard the rumor from some people talking about it at a bar.
"I'm going to clear this up-it's not happening!"
"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," Kauffman said to E! News earlier this week.
Kauffman clarified the rumor while attending the red carpet screening for Lifetime's movie, Call Me Crazy, which stars Friends former cast member, Jennifer Aniston. Like Aniston, many of the cast members of Friends have moved forward with their careers and are working on other projects. There is no reunion season or Friends movie in the works either but fans can reminisce by watching the Friends boxed set featuring seasons 1-10.
Friends first aired in Sep. 22, 1994 and saw its final episode air May 6, 2004 and was created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman. The cast included Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer. It became one of the most popular sitcoms of all time and its 236th, final episode was watched by 51.1 million viewers.
Aniston in an interview on Ellen had no idea about the rumor and said she was hearing in for the first time this week.
