Even Jennifer Aniston Wants A ‘Friends’ Reboot

The 2010s is officially the nostalgia era, full of movie remakes, TV show reboots, and fun reunions between all our favorite celebrities. We got a new Charmed, a new Star Wars trilogy, new Power Rangers and new installments of shows like Roseanne and Gilmore Girls. But the one reboot we’re really waiting for we’ve yet to hear about: Friends, aka the best sitcom of its time.

Over a decade after it stopped airing, Friends remains a classic among Millennials. Fanmade teases passed off as real news about a cast reunion have caused undue excitement more than once in the past few years. So, can we expect anything soon?

According to Jennifer Aniston, she kind of hopes so.

“Courteney [Cox] and Lisa [Kudrow] and I talk about it,” Aniston said in an interview with InStyle when asked what she thought about a reboot. “I fantasize about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had. I don’t know what it would look like today, but you never know.”

But apparently not all the friends are so keen on the idea. Joey, for one, is a little over the idea.

“I know Matt LeBlanc doesn’t want to be asked that question anymore,” Aniston said. “But maybe we could talk him into it.”

I don’t blame him, really — It’s been almost 15 years since the show ended and it’s still the one thing everyone wants to talk to him about. It must get a bit frustrating to be typecast as the dumb friend from that one sitcom. Still, come on, Matt, do us a solid and bring our favorite show back to life! I want to see Monica and Chandlers kids, want to see if Ross and Rachel actually stuck it out or if they’re going through a divorce, want to see if Joey is still living the bachelor life and if Phoebe is still singing at the coffee shop. Also, I want to see Paul Rudd looking just as sexy as he did a decade ago. Is that too much to ask?

But if that doesn’t work out, Aniston has another great idea: “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.”

Someone start drafting this show STAT. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
