Lisa Kudrow Is Down For A Friends Reboot On One Condition

Lisa Kudrow has said she'd be down for a reboot of beloved 90s sitcom Friends but only on one condition... that she not be in it. Instead she'd rather the show had a new cast.

Kudrow, who played Phoebe Buffay on the show, was asked about a possible reboot when on the red carpet for the Better Than Nate premiere.

Initially she shot down the possibility saying: "I don’t think there’s gonna be a Friends reboot.

"I mean, not with any of us in it, but a reboot, you mean like, they hire other actors?" she continued.

Once the interviewer clarified the reboot could be with a completely different cast, Kudrow reconsidered her answer.

"I would love to see what the now version of that would be," she said with a smile.

One of Kudrow's co-stars Courtney Cox has also been asked recently about a possible reboot saying that she could imagine actor Timothée Chalamet in the role of Joey Tribbiani.

While Matthew Perry talking about a possible reboot to Vanity Fair saying: "I have this recurring nightmare - I'm not kidding about this. When I'm asleep, I have this nightmare that we do Friends again and nobody cares."

She continued: "We do a whole series, we come back, and nobody cares about it. So if anybody asks me, I'm gonna say no. The thing is: we ended on such a high. We can't beat it. Why would we go and do it again?"

While fans appear to be somewhat split on the possibility of a reboot, one person who is certainly against it is the show's co-creator Marta Kauffman.

At Tribeca TV Festival in 2019 Kauffman strongly shut down the idea: "We did the show we wanted to do. We got it right, and we put a bow on it. If you visited those characters now, it just would not be the same DNA and chances are, it wouldn’t be as good."

Well there might be a reboot eventually although it seems unlikely that one will happen anytime soon, even if reboots are becoming ever more popular!
