The ‘Friends’ Cast Is “Working on Something” Together, Says Cryptic Jennifer Aniston – Fox News


 Friends fans keep asking, and the cast and creators keep telling us: A reunion is never ever going to happen To borrow a phrase from Joey Tribbiani, by now we should all know it’s a moo point That said, however, fans might have something on the horizon to get excited about—it’s just not clear what, exactly When Ellen DeGeneres asked Jennifer Aniston during her show whether there might be a Friends revival on the way, the Morning Show actor replied, “Like a reboot of the show? No ” But then she dropped a tantalizing addendum: “Listen, we would love for there to be something, but we don’t know what that something is,” she said “So we’re just trying. We’re working on something.” The Friends cast already had a reunion of sorts in 2016, when the cast collaborated on a TV special for longtime show director James Burrows (Matthew Perry, it’s worth noting, was unable to join that effort and had to send a taped greeting ) But otherwise the traditional message has remained unwavering. As cocreator Marta Kauffman noted that same year, Friends fans still nag her all the time to do a reunion—“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 Once you start having family of your own, it changes, and the show was over.” “A show has a lifespan, I believe,” Kauffman continued back then “It has a lifespan like anything else, and there’s no reason to continue doing it just because people miss the characters 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.” That answer, for the record, was extremely similar to one she’d given Entertainment Weekly the year prior—so it seems her stance is both well practiced and unlikely to change anytime soon  This year has already provided plenty of opportunities for fans to bug the show’s cast and creators anew about the possibility of getting the old gang back together In addition to Aniston’s return to the small screen, the show also celebrated the 25th anniversary of its premiere—prompting a new flurry of examinations and reporting on all the little details that made this beloved sitcom sing And so Kauffman reiterated her stance at a Tribeca TV Festival panel last month, saying, “We will not be doing a reunion show We will not be doing a reboot.”Most PopularAs Impeachment Heats Up, Jared and Ivanka Throw a Party at Camp DavidBy Emily Jane FoxJohn Legend and Chrissy Teigen on Love, Childhood Traumas, and the “Sh–ty Human Being” in the White HouseBy Karen ValbyPraising Himself for ISIS Raid, Trump Undermines His Own VictoryBy Kevin FitzpatrickAdvertisement “The reason is this is a show about that time in your life where your friends are your family,” Kauffman continued, reverting back to her old line “Once you start having a family, that changes. So it wouldn’t be what’s at the heart of the show anymore The other reason is, it’s not going to beat what we did.” Her cocreator, David Crane, added, “We really feel like we did the show that we really wanted to do We got it right and we put the bow on it,” he said. “As Marta says, if you visited those characters now, it would just have a different DNA It would just not be the same show. Chances are it wouldn’t be as good as a show ” Okay, fine. So whatever the cast is working on, it is not and never will be a reunion So what is it then? DeGeneres asked if, perhaps, it might be a movie? “A huge, huge, huge, movie,” Aniston joked “No. We don’t know.I don’t want to lead people on.” Fine, Jen—but for the record, this does count as teasing  — Our cover story: Joaquin Phoenix on River, Rooney, and Joker— Plus: why a neurocriminologist left Joker completely stunned— Charlize Theron’s transformation in the Fox News movie wows at the film’s debut— Ronan Farrow’s producer reveals how NBC killed its Weinstein story— Read an exclusive excerpt from the sequel to Call Me by Your Name— From the Archive: How a near-death Judy Garland’s 1961 Carnegie Hall performance became showbiz legend Looking for more?
