14 years later, the fan-base of the 90’s hit sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S is still hoping for a reunion or a reboot of the Emmy-award winning TV show.
In an interview with the InStyle Magazine on Wednesday, one of the leading ladies of the show, Jennifer Aniston, revealed that she, too, still fantasizes about a possible reunion.
Known for playing the character of Rachel Green on the show, FRIENDS, which ran 10 seasons on NBC from 1994-2004, the actress admitted to fantasizing about the show. She mentioned how her former co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow have also talked about it.
“I don’t know what it would look like today, but you never know. So many shows are being successfully rebooted,” the 49-year-old diva told InStyle, “I know Matt LeBlanc doesn’t want to be asked that question any more. But maybe we could talk him into it.”
Jennifer did not seem to hold back, and expressed that despite having gone on to have a fortunate career in Hollywood and playing numerous characters, playing Rachel Green was the greatest feat for her. She added, “I fantasize about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had.”
She put forward her own idea for a reunion by saying, “Or we just give it some time and then Lisa, Courteney, and I could reboot The Golden Girls and spend our last years together on wicker furniture.”
While the question of a possible reunion of FRIENDS remains unanswered, Aniston added, “Even before that show ended, people were asking if we were coming back.”
The fans are truly starved to see their favorite group of FRIENDS make a reappearance on TV, but unfortunately, the cast of FRIENDS has not yet reached a unanimous decision on the matter. The cast believes that they have become old. In the words of Lisa Kudrow, who played the eccentric character of Phoebe Buffay on the show, “They’re rebooting everything so how does that work with FRIENDS though? That was about people in their 20s, 30s… the show isn’t about people in their 40s and 50s. And if we have the same problems, then that’s just sad.”
Matt Le Blanc, who played Joey Tribbiani, remarked bluntly on the matter by saying, “I don’t want to do it – simple. I don’t think anybody wants to see an old Joey having a colonoscopy.”
Actors David Schwimmer [Ross Geller], Matthew Perry [Chandler Bing], and Courteney Cox [Monica Geller] also commented on the matter in a similar vein by suggesting, “The show ended on a high, and they can’t beat it.”
