“Friends” premiered several years ago but it remains to be one of the most popular television shows to this day. Many old series are being revived recently, so fans are wondering if it can happen to “Friends”. Matthew Perry who was part of the main cast has revealed what he thought of a possible revival.

“Will and Grace” has been revived and it returns this year on NBC. “Roseanne” has been revived as well and it will be airing again on ABC in 2018. Fans are asking for a revival or reboot of “Friends” and it looks like a great idea but it seems like Matthew Perry does not want it to happen.

Perry, who plays the role of Chandler Bing, in the famous comedy show has voiced out that he does not want “Friends” to be revived at all. The actor has revealed that he has been having recurring nightmares about it and it is pretty serious. He opened up about it and said that in his nightmare, “Friends” gets revived despite him not agreeing to it and nobody cares.

He further revealed that his nightmare essentially showed that people will not care if the whole main cast came back together and did a whole new season. He explained that there was no point in reviving “Friends” because no matter what they do now, they will not be able to beat the show’s peak, which was years ago. Perry also added that for the second half of his life, he does not want to act in a standard sitcom television.

“Friends” was an American sitcom that debuted in 1994 on NBC and paved a new path for comedy shows. Along with Perry, the show made Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer widely famous. The show has become so popular that there are still reruns of it until now and the actors reportedly still get royalties for it.
