Why there will never be a Friends reunion

ONE classic sitcom that won't get a reboot anytime soon is Friends. Just ask one of its stars, Lisa Kudrow.

The 53-year-old actress, who played Phoebe Buffay in the '90s hit series, discussed the possibility of a reunion, only to reveal that it's not going to happen.

"I feel like I'm just constantly bursting that little bubble of hope, each and every time it's asked," explained Kudrow to Heat Magazine. "It's been 13 years, 13 years of the same question and right now, or in the future, it's not going to happen. And every time I say that, I get yelled at."

When asked if a Friends reunion will ever happen in the future, Kudrow said, "Yeah, probably not. What's it going to be about? Really, how is it going to work? This is what everybody is forgetting."

Kudrow also added that a new storyline just wouldn't make sense to those familiar with the show.

"They no longer hang out at the coffee shop, they have all moved away," she explained. "Chandler and Monica live upstate, Phoebe and Mike, probably the same. For what reason would there be for them all to come together for a significant amount of time? The setting, and that time of life, worked brilliantly for them."

She also pointed out that even off-camera, everyone who was involved with Friends has since moved on in Hollywood.

"It would be great [if it happened]," she insisted. "It would be a lot of fun. But even just from a logistical purpose, it would never work because everyone is on a totally, ridiculous work schedule, that's the opposite of someone else. It's even impossible for us to get together for dinner, it's really hard. It's six people, how easy is it for you to get six of your friends together?"

Friends premiered on September 22, 1994 and ran for 10 seasons until its finale on May 6, 2004.
