Friends went off the air 13 years ago and I’ve been sad about it ever since. Thank goodness all the seasons or on Netflix or I have no idea how I’d cope.
Reboots are all the rage in 2017, but don’t hold your break for a Friends one. That idea has been shot down by various cast members and the creators as well. A reunion doesn’t seem to be on the horizon either. Not now..not ever.
So that leaves us with one option: A SPINOFF.
There has been a Friends spinoff before, remember ‘Joey’? The show hit the small screen pretty soon after Friends ended…but only stuck around for two seasons. Why did it fail? My theory is that people had grown so accustomed to the group as a whole, and how their different personalities played off each other so well, that the idea of keeping an idea on one of them just felt….weird.
However, enough time has passed and I personally will take whatever I can get with a Friends feel to it. Just give it to me.
Which is why I am exceptionally thrilled to find out that Lisa Kudrow is in serious talks with Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman to star in her very own spinoff!
In Touch Magazine reports that the show will be feature a divorced Phoebe Buffay, living in the big apple.
Fingers crossed the rest of the gang will be around for cameos!
