Since Friends wrapped up fifteen years ago, fans of the sitcom have been more than vocal about wanting Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, and Joey to return to the screen one more time.
Over the years, the cast has been inundated with questions about whether the show would ever come back, but there have been no signs of a reunion – with the cast showing little interest in setting foot into Central Perk one last time.
All cast members but Jen have had active Instagram accounts that constantly tease us eager followers with hints of a reunion, but the day finally came… Jen got an Instagram account. Fans, however, were quick to try and ruin the occasion by making some wild accusations, so keep scrolling to learn more…
We were first introduced to the Friends gang in 1994.
Ross (David Schwimmer), Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Chandler (Matthew Perry), Monica, (Courteney Cox), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), and Joey (Matt LeBlanc) burst onto our screens in September 1994.
Created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, the comedy follows the friends, who live in the same New York apartment block, as they navigate their lives.
The show propelled each cast member into superstardom, with the show winning several Emmy’s during its ten-season run.
The success of the show can’t be denied…even the theme song, “I’ll Be There for You,” during the iconic title sequence is impossible to not sing along to.
Allegedly, the cast was also each on an eye-watering $1 million salary per episode in the later seasons of the show – a history-breaking figure.
Apart from the occasional reunion on talk-shows, fans have had their fair share of disappointments when it comes to waiting for a Friends reunion.
A fake trailer for a Friends movie trailer even went viral last year, giving superfans false hope that the sitcom was hitting the box office.
Just last year, Matt Leblanc said a Friends reunion would never go ahead.
The actor left fans heartbroken as he rejected calls for the show to return, saying the sitcom simply “wouldn’t be the same” in an interview with the Mail Online.
He added: “People want to know what happened to them. But it was about a finite period in a person’s life after college, before you settle down and start a family.”
While appearing on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, the actress said: “They’re rebooting everything. I don’t know how that works with Friends, though. That was about people in their twenties, thirties. The show isn’t about people in their forties, fifties. And if we have the same problems, that’s just sad.”
The show’s creator Marta Kauffman, says she constantly gets “nagged” by fans to bring the sitcom back.
“Watch the old ones – there is no way we could win that. And there’s no way it would be satisfying and it’ll never happen. We’ll never do it,” she said.
Yes, you read that correctly…
When asked the usual question about a potential reunion with her fellow co-stars, Aniston surprised fans, saying: “Why not? You know what, because, listen, I told you this.
“I would do it… The girls would do it. And the boys would do it, I’m sure. Listen. Anything could happen.”
Aniston joked that she could do a revival by herself if nobody else was up for it.
And that’s an Instagram account.
Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox, David Schwimmer, and Matt Le Blanc post regularly on their Instagram accounts – it’s only been Jennifer and Matthew Perry who have kept their distance from the social media platform.
Jennifer finally has an Instagram account!
She created her account under the name @jenniferaniston on the 15th of October, and her first post is everything we could have dreamed of.
She shared a selfie of herself and the rest of the Friends gang, clearing enjoying an evening together.
“And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM,” she captioned the post.
Our prayers have finally been answered!
Jen playfully commented on Matt Le Blanc’s Instagram post of the gang recently: ‘You don’t have to # me anymore.”
Of course, the account was literally verified a few hours ago – but we are so excited to see what content Jen will be providing for us… and even some more hints for a Friends reunion?!
Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow had this simple response.
Yeah, of course you were David!
Like Kate, we can’t wait to see what Jen gets up to on Instagram.
She was straight in there with a gag.
God I love Netflix.
But fans think the selfie has certainly hinted more than a Friends reunion…
Amongst the love online, fans think they’ve spotted something a little bit fishy about the selfie.
And the tweet pointed out an apparent “white substance” on the back of an iPhone placed on the table.
And fans have been losing their mind over the thought of the gang doing drugs behind the scenes.
But not all fans are as convinced, with many suggesting that the phone case is patterned in that way or it’s a mere reflection of the light shade above.
It is more than likely a reflection of light.
The friends all know better than illegal drug use, so let’s please put the drug rumors to rest and start re-watching Friends… again!
