The "Friends" Creators Can't Stress Enough That A Reboot Will Never Happen

It's not going to happen.

Posted on

Friends co-creators Marta Kauffman and David Crane crushed dreams when they told The Hollywood Reporter that a reboot, in which the six friends reunite, would never happen.

"It will never happen, but no one tends to believe me. It shouldn't happen," Kauffman said. "That show is about a time in your life when your friends are your family. Once you start having a family, that time of your life is over."Crane added that the show, which aired its final episode in 2004 after a 10-year-run, concluded as the creators had intended. "To revisit those characters just seems like a bad idea — you don't want to see them hang­ing out in the coffeehouse now."

But it's not like we haven't heard this before... Like, a month ago.

And a year ago...

And two years ago...

And three years ago.

Even Courteney Cox said so in April 2014.

And Matt LeBlanc said four years ago he doesn't want to see our favorite Tribbiani age.

But hey, there's always NBC's special airing on Feb. 21 that will see Cox, LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, and David Schwimmer come together to celebrate comedy director James Burrows.

And though some fans are devastated...

I have accepted that Friends Reunion or another Harry Potter novel will never ever happen.. :(

Just know, they're always there for us on Netflix.
