For people of a certain age, Friends was our defining model for how to live. Watching Rachel, Ross, Chandler, Joey, Phoebe and Monica, we learned about what to wear, how to decorate our homes and how to be in relationships.
And the most-discussed relationship of all was, of course, the troubled pairing of Ross and Rachel. Over ten seasons, we watched them go from budding romance to being “on a break” to eventually having a baby together. They were lobsters after all.
And now the show’s creator has given some inside information into what finally happened to the pair. Speaking at a panel for The Wrap at the Landmark Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Friends co-creator David Crane was asked: “In your opinion, Ross and Rachel, how are they doing?”
“Yes. Come on, they worked really hard, ten years,” he replied.
The interviewer added: “Chandler and Monica, still good?”
“Absolutely,” he said.
Well this is just wonderful news, isn’t it.
Unfortunately, this is where the Friends fun comes to a screeching halt because Crane was also asked about the chances of a much-rumoured reboot.
“Never happening. Never. We did it! It’s done,” Crane said definitively. “That’s why you don’t want to see more of it, because it’s all a happy ending.”
But come on man! We all love Friends. And there’s a whole new generation of people watching it on Netflix right now. Give the people what they want.
