If you're still holding out hope for a Friends reunion movie it may finally be time to let it go. Sorry!

The show's co-creator Marta Kauffman had definitively said there will be NO film spinoff of the popular series showing us what Rachel, Ross and everyone has been up to since the sitcom ended.


Jennifer Aniston (as Rachel Green), David Schwimmer (as Ross Geller), Courteney Cox (as Monica Geller), Matt LeBlanc (as Joey Tribbiani), Lisa Kudrow (as Phoebe Buffay), Matthew Perry (as Chandler Bing)
Friends (NBC) season 1
USA - 1994-1995


We still love them so much!

Marta said this week: "I will say there will never be a Friends reunion movie."

She also told Us Weekly she can't envision a rebbot ever happening, even if other series like Heroes and Full House are returning to screens with new storylines.

"For me, why go back to that territory again... That was about a certain time in your life, and I had just left [the] Friends time of my life. This is about the time of my life I'm looking towards."

And she added to E! News: "Friends was about that time in your life when your friends are your family and once you have a family, there's no need anymore."

However, we doubt Marta's comments will stop the most ardent of Friends fans continuing to dream that one day we'll find out just what the gang have been up to since leaving that famous purple apartment back in 2004.

The closest we came was a brilliant moment on Jimmy Kimmel Live back in 2014 when Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow reprised the roles of Rachel, Monica and Phoebe for a fan fiction sketch written by Jimmy.

Watch it below - he even had the entire Friends apartment replicated!

And the year before that, there was another mini-Friends reunion when Jennifer and Courteney joined Matthew Perry - aka Chandler - for a skit on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Unlike the Jimmy Kimmel sketch, the Ellen one was about the actors, not their characters, and followed Jen as she sought advice from Matthew about TV hosting... only to find he was having a secret romance with Courteney!
