We won’t ask you if you miss the ‘90s iconic sitcom, Friends, because everyone does, so much so that there’s even an online petition asking the show to remain on Netflix. This isn’t a big deal if it just aired last year – the last episode was released 15 years ago so it is safe to say that the legacy is pretty much alive.
The NBS series was more than just iconic, it defined the TV age, thanks to the addicting storyline of six friends whose lives intertwined. Of course, on top of the amazing script that never fails to let out a cackle, the stellar casts make the show effective.
That’s why when there’s a rumored reunion, everybody goes wild. In October last year, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, and Jennifer Aniston met in Malibu at Courteney’s abode.
That was where Jennifer, who played Rachel Green in the series, took their selfie – her first Instagram post that broke the internet. It definitely became the talk of the town and again sparked a Friends reboot/rerun speculations.
According to a People source, the get-together was actually a planned one and that’s because the actors are quite busy with their endeavors and they lived in different cities. The insider further narrated that it’s as if the cast members have always seen each other always because there was a lot of hugging and laughing.
Unlike other reunions that have inside dramas, the Friends’ dinner certainly didn’t, which just goes to show just how they still remain to be pals despite the years that passed. Thanks to the sitcom, they became some of the highly celebrated stars.
Last Time of Being Unpopular
The cast members were still largely unknown before Friends came. There was even the famous story about the time director James Burrows took the six stars to Las Vegas where he told the wide-eyed celebs that that was the last time they were able to go places without a flock of fans.
James also shared that the actors had no money and he had to give them $200 each to play. True enough, the stars were catapulted to stardom. Just how big did the show get?
At the start, the starring cast was said to earn $22,500 per episode. This ballooned to a million dollars per episode for the last two seasons of Friends. Now, they still earn $20 million each per year from royalties.
