Why the Friends Reunion Is NOT What You Think It Is
Today the Internet nearly peed its pants with excitement over the news that the cast of one of the most beloved TV shows from the ’90s to 2000s might be getting a reunion. (Okay, just me.) We’re talking about Friends, that little show that dominated the TV airwaves from 1994 to 2004. Yes, we might actually get to see Ross, Rachel, Joey, Phoebe, Chandler and Monica all together again. (Pardon us, just got chills typing that sentence). We don’t want to be a Debbie Downer or anything (because our love for Friends is real!), but a reunion might not happen at all… but it’s not all bad news.
According to TVLine, the crew certainly will all be participating in an NBC Special honoring sitcom director James Burrows, who had been a frequent director of the popular show — which is great news! However, we might as well put to rest any hopes of a real reunion à la Fuller House at this time. “I’m hoping all six of them will be all in the same room at the same time,” said NBC Entertainment Chair Bob Greenblatt at a Television Critics Association press tour on Wednesday, “but I’m not sure if we can logistically pull that off.”
Womp womp. You can however catch the special on NBC Sunday, February 21. Hopefully we’ll get to at least see the whole gang back together again.
Buuuut… there’s this little gem of a Tweet from Matt LeBlanc (which Lisa Kudrow retweeted). Maybe someday? *fingers crossed*
