The co-creator of NBC’s hit sitcom “Friends” says a “Friends” reunion won’t happen, and explains why that’s a good thing.
In an interview this week with Entertainment Weekly, Marta Kauffman says she understands that the show’s fans want to see it happen, but it would be a bad idea.
Says Kauffman: “Friends is about that time in your life when your friends are your family. Once you start having a family, that changes.”
Kauffman says the show was about that time and those relationships, and there’s no going back.
“It’s not that you don’t love those people anymore, but it changes,” she says. “But to put them back together now when it’s no longer that time of their lives, there’s no reason for the show.”
Kauffman adds that she gets asked about a “Friends” reunion “every day.”
