News broke yesterday that there will be a revival/reunion season of the series that you clapped along with every week and made you want to visit central perk every time you visited NYC. This made all the world go CooCoo for Coco Puffs and everyone was like “OMG! EYES ARE BLEEDING BECAUSE I’M SO EXCITED FOR THE FACT THAT THIS IS HAPPENING!”
Well, your eyes were bleeding for nothing but a bunch of lies. That’s right, E! News reported that this is just a vicious rumor. The show’s creator Marty Kauffman (no relation) said:
“I’m going to clear this up—it’s not happening! Friends was about that time in your life when your friends are your family and once you have a family, there’s no need anymore.”
So according to Marty, once you have yourself a family then you have no need for friends anymore? Gurl, you be straight up trippin’. You just don’t throw your friends to the curb once you get yourself a family. Sometimes, your family will drive you up the wall cray-cray and your friends are the people who you go to complain about your family to and who you go out with to get away from your family.
I think we all can agree that it would be interesting to see how Chandler, Monica, Joey, Ross, Rachel, and Phoebe interact with each other and with others in this new stage of their life. But alas, it looks like we won’t know if they will still there for each other. Hopefully, we will a reunion in the future because it will answer the age-old question of how the hell they had the power to turn off all of those lights from one lamp.
