A report that our dear Friends will be reuniting for an entire season in 2014 circulated like wildfire Tuesday, and everyone eagerly jumped on board. Of course this is a wild, unconfirmed rumor. Star Media (who has ever been to this site? Does that person exist?) posted that “NBC network reportedly confirmed they will launch a new season of Friends on 2014, it was supposed to be about their story in acomeback reunion! It’s still unknown if the original actors will accept NBC’s deal, but the dream of “Friends” reunion is closer than ever!”
It’s no surprise people are latching onto this dream like a teenage girl onto her Robert Pattinson life-sized body pillow. Everyone hopes for a Friends reunion. You share GIFs of Ross whacking himself in the head trying to put back on his leather pants. You talk of the time Joey joined Rachel and Chandler in eating cheesecake off the floor. You chuckle to yourself thinking about Phoebe’s best Estelle impression. You want more. You want so much more. Unfortunately, you’re probably going to have to continue turning to your complete series box set for laughs. Maybe, just maybe, all this hubbub will get NBC to do it, but the report everyone is passing around as true is totally bogus.
