Since Friends last aired in 2004, there have been several notable and successful sitcoms, such as How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, and Two and a Half Men, but there is still room for a new series of Friends. After all, Fuller House â€“ which is a sequel to Full House (1987-1995) â€“ is already three seasons old and is not showing any signs of slowing down. Given the popularity that Friends enjoyed â€“ the last episode was watched by over 50 million people, and that was before the social media age â€“ a new series is certainly going to be a huge hit â€“ if written well and executed properly.

The storylines for the new series should have a more familial feeling and have more depth, as well as explore societal issues of the times, given that the â€œFriendsâ€ would now be married and/or in their 40s. There has to be a serious undertone without losing the touch of humour that made it so popular in the first place. Friends has permeated the popular culture.
From Matt Le Blanc’s character Joeyâ€™s â€œHow you doing?â€ to Aniston’s layered haircut â€“ The Rachel â€“ to the simple act of a group of friends hanging in a coffee shop, the impact of the sitcom is felt to this day. Such is the popularity of sitcom that you can find a Friends video slot machine developed by Bally Technologies, which is available on various online casinos listed on Oddschecker that offer free spins.
While it is unlikely that a Friends reunion will be possible in the next few years, fans of the award-winning American sitcom can only hope and dream. Who knows. Maybe if someone, perhaps a fan, writes the script and puts together a good idea on how to go on about it and pitch it to David Crane and Marta Kauffman, it could happen. Hope, as they say, springs eternal.
