One of the most-watched series, Friends, has completed 25 years. In order to celebrate the occasion, a reunion was planned with the cast members – Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer. The six stars were set to come under the same roof at Friends’ iconic soundstage Stage 24 at Warner Bros. Studio on March 23-24. However, due to coronavirus pandemic, the reunion was postponed.
Talking about the reunion in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman said that it will happen once when the condition gets better. “We all want it to happen; we just have to wait until it is safe,” she said.
She continued: “There was a real resurgence of the show, because of the 25th anniversary of the show there was a lot of love… sent out for it. I think the cast is incredibly grateful and want to give back by doing the special. This is a show that is not scripted, but this is the way the show works – we are going to need a live audience.
“Even if we socially distance that live audience, it really is a huge part of what Friends is… We can not do it without them. Everyone is all in and we are just waiting for that time when it feels connected to bring in a live audience,” she concluded.
