STOP THE PRESS! A Friends reunion may be happening after all…
Well, I would advise that you don’t hold your breath as rumours have been circulating about a said rumour ever since the show went off the air way back in 2004, but it seems more fuel has been added to the fire.
America’s OK! Magazine has reported that Jennifer Aniston, who played the role of Rachel is currently being “slowly convinced” to return for a special anniversary episode next year.
It would seem that over the past few years, each of the cast members have ruled out a return to the show, whether it be permanently or for an anniversary special. However, next year marks the 20th anniversary since the show kicked off in 1994 and it seems the cast members are up for doing something special.
It’s safe to say that there’s still enough drive behind the show and even after 20 years since the show started, a special one-off episode would be SO popular with viewers. There’s even teenagers that had only just been born when Friends started that watch the reruns… Friends is one of those shows that never ages.
But, back to the news at hand, a source has reportedly told America’s OK! Magazine: “Since the show ended in 2004 it’s been rare for all six of them to appear in public together. But, with next year’s 20th anniversary pof the show’s launch], it will be unavoidable for them to do something together. IT’s the perfect excuse to talk seriously about a new project”.
At the moment, it seems to be that the only person that needs a shove in the right direction is Jennifer Aniston due to her hectic work schedule.
“It’s no secret the whole project will be pinned on Jenner who’s incredibly busy with her movie career,” the source continued “But, she’s been slowly convinced that a reunion could be a good thing”.
Courtney Cox who played the role of Monica on the show has apparently been the one to push the idea of a reunion and it’s thought that Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer are all on board.
The source added: “Courtney has been telling Jennifer that she and Matthew Perry have still got that amazing chemistry after shooting just a few scenes with him guest starrng on her TV show ‘Cougar Town’. It was as though no time has passed at all”.
I can tell you that I’d definitely be excited about the prospect of a Friends reunion. But, do you feel the same way? Let us know in the comments below.
