No matter how badly we want a Friends reunion, Lisa Kudrow sadly doesn’t see it happening. Kudrow—who played the lovable Phoebe on the NBC sitcom for 10 seasons—visited the Today Show this week to share her opinions on the topic as well as promote her new film, Table 19.
When host Savannah Guthrie asked Lisa Kudrow if she thought Phoebe, Rachel, Monica, Ross, Joey, and Chandler would ever reunite, the actress first dodged the question. “We have convened. Privately. For dinner. And it was great,” she said, making us all supremely jealous of the antics that must have ensued when the Friends actors got together. “It was really fun…we had such a good time, it was hilarious, we were laughing nonstop!” Cue even more envy. Where was our invite?!
Guthrie joked that Kudrow was being mean for teasing us, and Kudrow finally gave more of a straight answer. “I don’t see it happening,” Kudrow said, turning us into the crying emoji. But while we don’t want to admit it, Kudrow has a pretty good reason for being against a revival. “It would be fun, but what would it be about? Think about it: The thing we liked about that show was it was like 20-somethings, and they were their own family and now they all have families. So what are we gonna watch?”
Kudrow makes a good point—in a hypothetical eleventh season of Friends, the crew would be in totally different places. It might be a little too heartbreaking to witness them all trying to meet up at Central Perk with their high school-aged children, only to discover that a new crew of 20-somethings has taken over the orange couch.
But still, we’d watch anyway.
