A 'Friends' revival? Jennifer Aniston sparks hopes again, calling the sitcom her "greatest job"
The actress, who has received worldwide recognition for her role as Rachel, most recently opened up to a magazine about chances of the sitcom's revival.
For the longest time, possibilities of a reboot of the popular 90s sitcom 'Friends' has kept fans on tenterhooks. While the cast and show creators have quashed the talks time and again, somehow or the other, the speculations resurface - with the latest hint coming from none other than the sitcom's lead star Jennifer Aniston. The actress, who has received worldwide recognition for her role as Rachel, most recently opened up to Instyle about the show's revival. While she makes generous mention of such prospects, remaining as vague as possible, Aniston has indeed sparked another wave of 'Friends' rumors.
"Before that show ended, people were asking if we were coming back," the Hollywood star told the website, explaining how chances of a 'Friends' team-up have always been a topic of conversation for her co-stars. "Courteney [Cox] and Lisa [Kudrow] and I talk about it. I fantasize about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had."
Indeed, a reboot of the NBC series would be a treat for fans. Considering that 2018 has proven to be the year of the reboots and revivals, perhaps the show's creators and the cast would give a second thought to their Central Perk-set series.
"I don't know what it would look like today, but you never know. So many shows are being successfully rebooted. I know Matt LeBlanc doesn't want to be asked that question anymore. But maybe we could talk him into it," the actress dished.
Maybe yes Rachel! And if that doesn't happen, looks like Aniston has got a Plan B in order. "Or we just give it some time and then Lisa, Courteney, and I could reboot The Golden Girls and spend our last years together on wicker furniture," added the actress.
But before fans get too excited to see the gang of six return, it's wise to take into consideration Friends co-creator David Crane's opinion about a possible revival - which, to say the least, is pretty grim.
"Never happening. Never. We did it! It's done. That's why you don't want to see more of it, because it's all a happy ending," Crane said, as co-creator Marta Kaufman later added, "They'd all be older, and it wouldn't be the same, and people will only end up feeling disappointed, and then I'll be embarrassed, and it would be terrible."
Regardless, loyalists of the show couldn't be more thrilled to know that a possibility exists. Even more so when it comes from the fan-favorite Rachel aka Aniston.
