No Reboot for ‘Friends’

No Reboot for ‘Friends’

Variety.com: If you’re holding your breath for a “Friends” reboot, 25 years is a good time to stop holding onto hope.

The creators of the beloved NBC sitcom firmly put the kibosh on any possibility of a revival series or reunion special, during a panel celebrating the show’s milestone anniversary.

“We will not be doing a reunion show. We will not be doing a reboot,” co-creator Marta Kauffman said Friday evening on an anniversary panel for “Friends” at the Tribeca TV Festival in Manhattan. Kauffman was joined by co-creator David Crane and executive producer Kevin Bright for the conversation.

Explaining why there will be no “Friends” reboot, Kauffman said, “There are two reasons for that. One of the reasons we won’t do a reunion is because this is a show about a time in your life when your friends are your family. And when you have a family, that changes. But the other reason is it’s not going to beat what we did.”
