Show creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman also worked with the company on this potential project. It is not known whether it is a special, film or limited series.
“The cast of friends talked about bringing the show back in some form,” a source told the broadcaster. “But in what form there is still a lot to discuss.” The source added that the actors have remained friends in real life for the past 25 years, but they’re cautious. “The show has a cult following and high praise, and the actors and doers don’t want to do bad service to the show and its fans. The talks are just beginning, but if it makes sense, everyone is on board in a way.”
