No Reunion Ever, 'Friends' Say
Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc insist it won't happen
Speculation regarding either another television series or "Friends" movie has swirled since the show ended its 10-year run in 2004.
Bing: More about 'Friends'
"I don't think it will ever happen whether any of us want it to happen or not," Kudrow told E! Online, who explained that series co-creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman would have to write it "and I don't know how they could do it."
In a separate interview with Digital Spy, LeBlanc admitted that "everyone in their own mind imagines what has become of those characters" but that "it's best to leave it at that." (Obviously, someone is still smarting from "Joey.")
Ironically, this news comes as the only former cast mate to ride a sitcom three seasons may suddenly become available for a reunion. (Courteney Cox's "Cougar Town" is struggling for its network life, against what some observers like to call "the 'Friends' curse.")
It would take probably like a weeks worth of tme if done right....but that's what happens when you put money before people who care about you.
I don't think they should do a reunion show/movie. I think after Brady Bunch did that to death they should let that stuff go. I agree with the other commentor that they could do a roundtable discussion ala happy days or Cheers (for their 200th episode). With the quality of reunion shows usually lackluster it would be a shame to bring them back just to go out limp. They left on a high note. Leave it that way. As for Joey, I never got to watch much of that show, so I don't have an opinion on the quality it was always on when I was working and at the time I didn't have a way to record it. But, I had always thought they should have done a spin-off with Joey and Chandler, they were always a good comedic team. I'm not sure if Monica should have come along or not. as that may interfere with the dynamics. Frasier benefited from leaving Lilith behind (and made for some hilarious cameos). So who knows. My last word is NO REUNIONS (Unless it's a larry david/seinfeld type reunion)
When they try to put together an "episode" style reunion, it ALWAYS sucks. They could class it up like Happy Days with the stars all sitting around discussing their favorite stories and showing clips.
"Friends" ended the way it should, with the beginning of the next chapter as they move forward with their own lives. They're all on Facebook now (except for Ross), Ben, Emma and the twins are all in school, Monica isa soccer mom and Rachel has started her own fashion line and works from home, and they get together and cookout at the Bings' whenever Joey is in town. Well, that's my version In reality, however, I'd love to see the actors work together as an ensemble on an unrelated indie project. I think something like that would be fun, but I'm not holding my breath.
