Co-creator David Crane gave some reveals about Ross and Rachel, as well as the potential for a 'Friends' revival.
With the series having been obtained by Netflix earlier this year, fans of ‘Friends’ were given a real treat, and the show and its famous storylines were brought back into the public eye for the first time in a while.
Now, co-creator David Crane has spilled the beans on whether Ross and Rachel actually stayed together. Crane, who devised the series with co-writer Marta Kauffman, was speaking at a comedy showrunners panel for The Wrap’s Emmy series on Wednesday (June 6th).
He was asked whether Ross and Rachel – portrayed by David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston and whose on/off romance was the central dynamic throughout all ten seasons – would still be together, 14 years on. “Yes. Come on, they worked really hard, ten years,” he revealed. Aw.
Perry revealed that his substance addiction was such that he can't remember filming several seasons of 'Friends'.
The 46 year old actor was interviewed on Chris Evan’s breakfast show on BBC Radio 2 last Friday (January 22nd), and when he was asked about his favourite and least favourite episodes of the hit show, in which he played the sarcastic Chandler Bing for ten years, he admitted that he had very little memory of some seasons.

He'll be returning in 2016 in the new British sitcom 'Morning Has Broken', about a failing daytime TV show.
British fans of ‘Friends’ trying to get their heads round the fact that their beloved sitcom ended over 10 years ago will be pleased to hear that David Schwimmer will be returning to Channel 4 for a new comedy series in 2016.
Schwimmer, who played Ross Geller in ten series of ‘Friends’ between 1994 and 2004, will be starring in a six-part series called ‘Morning Has Broken’. Created by Julia Davis, he’ll be playing the part of an American TV producer brought in to rescue a failing British daytime TV show that features Gail Sinclair, a self-styled ‘queen of daytime’ played by Davis herself.

Kate Hudson shared a selfie of Jennifer Aniston on Instagram to mark the first day of filming ‘Mother’s Day’.
It’s rare to see Jennifer Aniston on social media so it came as a surprise when her face popped up on Kate Hudson’s Instagram. Hudson managed to grab a selfie with Aniston on the set of Mother’s Day and shared the picture with her 2.1 million followers. The picture appeared to be on the first day of filming as Hudson marked it ‘Day 1’ so we may see more of Aniston on Hudson’s social media as filming progresses.

The show's casting director told The Huffington Post that she came very close to securing the former Beatle to play Ross's father-in-law.
In a new interview with The Huffington Post, the NBC show’s casting director Leslie Litt revealed that she tried extremely hard to get the ex-Beatle to star as Ross’ would-be father-in-law in a 1998 episode, but it conflicted too much with his recording and touring schedule for him to fit in.
Litt envisaged McCartney as playing Ross’s (David Schwimmer) English fiancée Emily’s (Helen Baxendale) father in the two-part finale to season 4.

Will Jennifer Aniston be bringing her cupping marks back to Central Perk?
When we first heard of these Jennifer Aniston cupping marks, we thought it was another prank, played by her playful finance, Justin Theroux. But as it turns out, the ancient Chinese practice helps circulation to neck, shoulder pain, and detoxes the body.
So when the 44-year-old Friends star hit the red carpet for the Los Angeles screening of Call Me Crazy in a backless dress, the ‘cupping marks’ were there for all to see. And despite their ample health benefits, they’re not pretty to look at. She’s not the only one though; Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, Jessica Simpson and David Arquette are all fellow celebrity cuppers. Sounds weird. Given Theroux’s penchant for ‘trickery’, we were justified in thinking it was a prank. Well, he calls it trickery. But he’s constantly hiding behind drapes. And I’m constantly scared. It’s like it doesn’t get old on me…’ explained Aniston to Ellen DeGeneres on her show.

Well, the 'Friends' reunion was a pipe dream, but at least there's still Veronica Mars.
Did someone say “Friends reunion”? Technically, loads of people, but no one official. Sadly for all the devoted fans of the series (and there are definitely still a bunch of those around), the show’s co-creator Marta Kaufman has not only dismissed the current rumors, but she said a reunion of the 90s sitcom is never going to happen, Fox News reports. Well, that was a harsh letdown for everyone.
The buzz started earlier this week when reports surfaced that not only was a Friends reunion likely, but NBC had already confirmed the deal. There was even a photoshopped poster thrown into the mix, advertising “The One With The Reunion”, due to hit screens on Thanksgiving 2014. Kaufman, however, had this to say: “’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.”
According to her, now that the characters have families of their own, Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Joey and Chandler are past their coffee shop days. Even the most devoted Friends fans can probably see how that makes sense, but the nostalgia still lives on. Warner Bros. also dismissed reports that a “Friends” movie was in development, telling Zap2it there is no “Friends”-related project being worked on by the studio. Harsh. But hey, maybe that means it's time for a re-watch.

How good must you have to be? How much faith in your own ability must you have? How long before you're the default that pops up on any search engine? If you're a relatively new band with a name synonymous with popular culture of an entirely different nature, you must be brilliant, extremely confident and have an enormous belief in yourself and your material. Rather than taking a more traditional route and naming your band something completely individual and unambiguous, some newer bands, namely Fun and now Friends (Having decided against Perpetual Crush) seem to have chosen a more challenging route to market. Having formed, practiced and gigged within six days and recorded within a calendar month, Friends clearly have a will and desire whose example would leap off the page of any self-development 'How To Be ...' management book. So are Friends (incidentally not named after a Beach Boys album or an Elton John song) the real deal, all smoke and mirrors, over-hyped and over here or justifiably acclaimed?
The momentum with which the Friends phenomenon has moved since they formed back in September 2010, has not yet reached terminal velocity but it is gathering pace. If Samantha Urbani, singer-song writer of the band, had had her way it may have moved even quicker. 'It's best to get shit done when you're inspired', she says. Samantha is not one to be over picky, preferring instead to act in the moment. Having been inspired to act after returning from Berlin to a trashed sub-let apartment and feeling quite depressed, Samantha and Friends have hardly had time to look back. 'Manifest!, the Brooklyn 5 piece's debut album release, represents another major milestone and, what's more, it is brim full of top ('Ex-Pop) tunes. She may be right when she says, 'Pop gets a bad wrap', but there is nothing manufactured, plastic or artificial about 'Manifest!' and, subsequently, nothing that could be conceived as bad.

Brooklyn quintet Friends have received a brilliant response with their three singles prior to the release of their debut album 'Manifest!' on Lucky Number record label earlier this month. The band, made up of singer Samantha Urbani, drummer Oliver Duncan and multi-instrumentalists Lesley Hann, Nikki Shapiro and Matthew Molnar, self-produced the album which included their third single 'Mind Control' - dubbed the Hottest Record in the World by Zane Lowe on Radio 1.
