Jennifer Aniston Is Now On Board For A Possible ‘Friends’ Reunion
Do you miss getting your mocha from Gunther at Central Park while singing "Smelly Cat"? Friends fans' prayers might be answered.
Aniston: "Anything Is Possible"
Actress Jennifer Aniston visited longtime friend Ellen DeGeneres for part two of her birthday show. As the women talked about the 1990s and how long they have known each other. However, the subject slowly turned one of Aniston's signature television series.
First, DeGeneres began using the signature clap that was a part of The Rembrandts' "I'll Be There For You." Next, the talk show host asked her about the possibility of the cast of Friends getting back together.
"Anything is a possibility, Ellen. Anything. Right? I mean George Clooney got married. Anything can happen," said Aniston.
Twitter Reacts To Aniston
Many Friends fans responded to Aniston's comments and really wanted the possibility to become a reality.
"It's not just that I want a Friends reunion. I need one," wrote one Twitter user.
Other users posted random GIFS that expressed their opinions. However, some fans of the sitcom were not exactly thrilled with the idea.
"Bad...no, TERRIBLE idea," said one Twitter user.
Other Friends Disagree
Sadly, half of the Friends cast have disagreed with the reunion.
In a recent interview, actor David Schwimmer, who portrayed Ross Gellar for all 10 seasons stated that the reunion would not work. Lisa Kudrow also told Conan that the reunion would be problematic.
"They're rebooting everything. I don't know how that works with Friends, though. That was about people in their twenties, thirties. The show isn't about people in their forties, fifties. And if we have the same problems, that's just sad," said Kudrow.
Matthew Perry also added that he would not even appear in a reunion project.
The Revival Season
In the small chance that Friends returns to television, it would join a slew of the 1990s shows that have been revived.
The CW has ordered a revival for Charmed. The reboot is expected to focus on a new trio of sisters that must defend their college town from the forces of evil and the patriarchy.
Last month, CBS announced that it would bring back Murphy Brown for the 2018-19 television series. Celebrated actress Candice Bergen is expected to reprise her role as the investigative journalist.
Freeform has asked Party of Five creators Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman to create a pilot of their FOX family drama for their network. While the original version of the show focused on the Salinger siblings, the Freeform version of the show would focus on a group of Mexican Americans whose parents were taken from them by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
