Since the show ended in 2004, there’s been a bevy of rumors saying that all six “Friends” stars will get together for a reunion show or movie. Unconfirmed rumors this week are saying there will be a reunion in 2014.
Last week, OK! Magazine reported that Jennifer Aniston, 44, could be close to making a comeback. It’s been reported that she has been the lone star to hold out.
“Since the show ended in 2004 it’s been rare for all six of them to appear in public together. But with next year’s 20th anniversary [of the show’s launch] it will be unavoidable for them to do something together,” a source told OK, via the Daily Mail. The source continued: “It’s the perfect excuse to talk seriously about a new project.”
“Friends” co-creator Marta Kauffman last year said, however, there is no plans for a new “Friends” show–despite numerous Internet rumors saying otherwise. One rumor that’s been around since last year suggests that NBC confirmed a new “Friends” show, but Kauffman vehemently denied it.
“I’m going to clear this up—it’s not happening!” Kauffman told E! Online in April 2013, referring to frequent rumors about a reboot show.
According to OK magazine’s report a week ago, the unnamed source noted that a “Friends” reunion is contingent on Aniston coming back, as she is the show’s most popular star.
“It’s no secret the whole project will be pinned on Jennifer, who’s incredibly busy with her movie career,” the source added. “But she’s been slowly convinced that a reunion could be a good thing.”
This week, rumors have spread on Twitter and Facebook saying there will be a “Friends” reunion in 2014, but they appear to be unsubstantiated.
One image being shared on Twitter says the show, which ended in 2004, will return this year “after a 10 year break.” There’s been no confirmation of a “Friends” reunion by any of the stars of the show.
RadarOnline last week reported that Cameron Diaz, Sandra Bullock, and Jennifer Aniston are seeking to do “the mother of all chick comedies” with one another.
