Not speaking in vague terms that a producer normally might to leave the door cracked for a sequel, former Friends producer Marta Kaufman said in response to rumors/requests for a Friends reunion, “I’m going to clear this up right now: No. Not happening.”
So you’re saying there’s a chance, Marta? Oh. No. You’re not.
This means no Friends movie, no Friends reboot, no Friends sequel. It’s a sad state of affairs when we feel the need to report that some beloved old property such as this refuses to let itself go around the bend again, but it’s also pretty nice.
Friends was really good. Let’s enjoy the place it occupies in our hearts and memories and use the effort we would have spent recycling it into making something better.
Like, I dunno, an Arrested Development movie or something.
