A Friends revival is one of those things that we’ve seen discussed time and time again on the internet, but it never really seems to be all that close to ever happening. It’s more the sort of thing that is dreamed about on the internet since in theory, it really could work.
Yet, at the same time Jennifer Aniston seems to have some interest in the idea — even if it never comes to pass. As a part of a new interview recently with InStyle, the actress had the following to say about it:
“Courteney [Cox] and Lisa [Kudrow] and I talk about it … I fantasize about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had.”
Of course, there’s a difference between a fantasy about the show and having it actually come to pass, and there are many reasons why it won’t. For starters, it doesn’t seem as though Matt LeBlanc is altogether interested in coming back for more:
“I know Matt LeBlanc doesn’t want to be asked [about a revival] anymore. But maybe we could talk him into it.”
If we were to make some sort of pitch about a Friends revival, it would be this: Do it for six to eight episodes so it’s not a big commitment, and then maybe come back for more in a couple of years if it goes over well. We don’t think that the show is never going to be back to what it once was, but there is probably a chance to create a new sort of legacy for it as something fun and nostalgic that people can come back to here and there.
Yet, like we said, this is a pipe dream … one that is almost sure to never actually come to pass.
