The Cast Of "Friends" Can't Agree On Whether To Do A Reboot And It's Wild

The One Where We've Got Receipts.

Also worth noting: When Jennifer (mistakenly) thought she heard someone in the audience groaning about a reunion, Jennifer wanted to know why.


(It turns out they were saying "aww" about the Friends photograph behind her.)


Although Lisa does acknowledge one issue with a possible reboot:

[The show] was about people in their 20s, 30s. Well...the show isn't about people in their 40s, 50s. And if we have the same problems then that's just sad.


Matt LeBlanc told the Daily Beast this summer that he doesn't want a reunion. He also said that — brace yourselves — he thinks the characters have gone their "separate ways" since the show ended.

"Those characters have all gone their separate ways, they’ve all grown up," he said. "That show was about a finite period in people’s lives, after school and before you get married...And once that time’s over, that time’s over.”

Matthew Perry told Variety this summer that the prospect of a reunion gives him actual nightmares, and that he'd definitely say no to the project if asked.

"The thing is: We ended on such a high. We can’t beat it. Why would we go and do it again?"

As for Courteney Cox? Well, in 2014 she told David Letterman a reunion was not in the cards.


She talked about how hard it was to get everyone together even for a dinner, before saying: "It's not gonna happen, guys."
