Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman gave an interview about her current show Grace and Frankie recently, where she was asked about that possibility of a Friends reunion ever taking place. The outlook does not look so good.
She was asked if people still ask her about bringing the show back in some form.
“Yes. They nag me all the time about it and my answer is that Friends was a show about that time in your life when your friends are your family, and in a weird way, this isn’t that different. Once you start having family of your own it changes, and the show was over. A show has a lifespan I believe, it has a lifespan like anything else, and there’s no reason to continue doing it just because people miss the characters. Watch the old ones, there is no way we could win that. And there’s no way it would be satisfying and it’ll never happen. We’ll never do it.”
Last year she was asked about it as well and it sounds like her sentiment hasn’t changed since then.
“It’s not that you don’t love those people anymore, but it changes. But to put them back together now when it’s no longer that time of their lives, there’s no reason for the show.”
Reruns it is.
