Faux ‘Friends’ Reunion Rumors Dupe Fans

The series' co-creator says a reunion will never happen


FriendsTVshowFans of the popular sitcom Friends had their hopes raised this week when a series of Internet reports said that the cast of the 1990’s TV series were preparing to reunite.

Someone even went to the trouble of creating a poster for the alleged reunion. The poster indicated that the reunion had been scheduled of Thanksgiving next year. Other account said that Comcast‘s (NASDAQ:CMCSA) NBC network had confirmed the reunion, Fox News noted.

However, the whole thing turned out to be a hoax. Time Warner‘s (NYSE:TWX) Warner Bros. studio, which produced Friends, says no such project is under development.

And putting a seemingly final stake in the rumors, Marta Kauffman, one of the iconic show’s creators, has said that a cast reunion will never happen. Friends was set in a time in the characters lives that could not be replicated as the cast ages, she told E! News.

Next month, Neflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) will release 15 new episodes of cult TV series Arrested Development, reuniting the original cast of the show.
