Don’t ask the creators of ‘Friends’ if they are going to remake the show.
Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman has reiterated for the millionth time that the show’s beloved cast will never sign on for a reunion.
“They [fans] nag me all the time about it and my answer is that ‘Friends’ was a show about that time in your life when your friends are your family, and in a weird way, this isn’t that different,” she tells Deadline. “Once you start having family of your own it changes, and the show was over. A show has a lifespan I believe, it has a lifespan like anything else, and there’s no reason to continue doing it just because people miss the characters.”
She adds, “Watch the old ones, there is no way we could win that. And there’s no way it would be satisfying and it’ll never happen. We’ll never do it.”
