Friends Reunion 2014 Hoax: ’10-year break’ Thanksgiving Poster Viral Once Again; Not Real

A poster created earlier this year by a fan saying all six “Friends” stars will have a reunion continues to go viral, but it’s not real.

On Sunday and Monday, users were sharing the poster on social media websites while asking if the original cast members would return. The poster was created by a fan, according to The Metro.

“I’m very sorry for any confusion caused. I have to say that the poster wasn’t created with the intention to upset, anger or fool anyone,” creator Tom Thompson told the Metro. “It wasn’t even supposed to be seen by many people. I was expecting a few ‘likes’ on Facebook by some of my friends who are also fans of the show.”

A couple of weeks ago, Matt LeBlanc–who played Joey–said there’s a very slim chance of a reunion happening.

He told Digital Spy: “As far as I know, I spoke to David [Crane] about it, it’s the case of ‘the books better than the movie’.

“That show was about a finite period of time in life, after college and before your relationship and family starts and where your friends are your support system and that’s what the magic of the show was, everyone goes through that and can relate to that.”

He continued: “No one wants to see Chandler at his kid’s soccer game talking to other people. It was those characters in a room relying on each other and past that it’s not the same environment so I don’t see it happening.”

A few months ago, Courtney Cox–who played Monica–stressed it’s not happening.

“Only because once you say, ‘Well, I’d like it,’ then they have to contact every other cast member and be like, ‘Courteney’s into it!’ And then I get in trouble. It’s not going to happen,” she told David Letterman on the “Late Show.” 

She continued: “Let me tell you something: there’s six friends and I’ve been trying to put together a cast dinner for 10 years. It doesn’t happen! I can get the girls to come, maybe Matthew Perry. Matt LeBlanc canceled last time right at the last minute, Schwimmer lives here [in New York City], so it’s just not gonna happen.”
