Friends creator Jane Foda has absolutely, irrefutably confirmed that a Friends reunion is not going to happen.

Rumors about a Friends reunion circulate more often than women come and go out of Joey’s flat. In any interview with Jennifer Aniston when of her movies comes out, she gets asked whether she would be up for reuniting with her Friends co-stars. It’s no different for Matt LeBlanc or any of the other sitcom stars.

Generally, it has been concluded that the girls are totally up for a reunion but that the boys are not so keen. Now, the creator of the show has confirmed that a reunion is 100% off the cards and has given two pretty good reasons why.

“There are several reasons,” Foda tells Rolling Stone. “One, the show is about a time in your life when your friends are your family. It’s not that time anymore. All we’d be doing is putting those six actors back together, but the heart of the show would be gone.

“Two, I don’t know what good it does us. The show is doing just fine, people love it. [A reunion] could only disappoint.”

She then joked that a reunion episode would be called: “The One Where Everyone’s Disappointed.”
