Buzz about a “Friends” reunion show never died down even after the 10th anniversary of the hit comedy series.
While, previous rumors about a reunion happening on Thanksgiving was previously debunked, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” show made it possible somehow for at least some of the original cast to act out scenes from the super hit comedy series.
The hit 90s show that starred Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer ended a decade ago.
And now Netflix has announced that come Jan.
1, 2015 all 236 episodes from its 10 seasons will be readily available on its platform in the US and Canada.
It may not be the much-awaited reunification of the casts but it will certainly bring back the happy memories of Chandler, Joey, Monica, Phoebe, Rachel and Ross in the household.
Us Weekly was able to talk to Kudrow at the CBS Annual Summer Stars Party, where she gladly shared her thoughts about the reunion dinner.
“It was really fun, great to see them,” she happily announced.
“I got to see the ring,” she added, referring to the Cougar Town star’s engagement ring from Snow Patrol rock star Johnny McDaid.
Kudrow also revealed that the whole gang has remained good friends following the conclusion of their hit comedy show and that they constantly see each other whenever their schedule would allow them.
“Fun, really fun.
It’s people I spent every day with for 10 years and no matter how much time has passed or how much we haven’t been able to see each other, it doesn’t matter.” And rumors of a “Friends” reunion show never annoyed them, original cast Matt LeBlanc who played the witty and funny character that we all loved, Joey Tribbiani, says that a “Friends” reunion show is not going to happen, but he’s always welcome to hear rumors about it.
“I’m not tired of getting asked that question at all.
‘Friends’ was probably the greatest 10 years of my life.
I’d be hard-pressed to find something that matches that in terms of success and just sheer fun.
So anything that harks back to that has a soft spot in my heart,” he told Los Angeles Times.
“As far as a reunion project, that’s just not in the cards.
I think that show was about a finite period in your life – after college and before you start your family where your friends are your family – and that’s what that show was about.
So to go beyond that doesn’t feel like you’d do justice to that.
I liken it to that saying that the book is always better than the movie.
I think it’s best to imagine what those characters are doing now versus to see those characters.
No one wants to see us in our 40s (laughs).
Joey’s still struggling as an actor.
It’d just be sad,” he added.
