The American TV sitcom “Friends,” created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, is known all over the world. It was aired from 1994 to 2004 and included ten seasons.
“Friends” has made a huge impact on TV culture. By the way, more than 50 million US viewers watched the final episode in 2004, making it one of the most-watched series finale in television history.
Initially, the creators developed the sitcom under the name “Insomnia Café.” After some time, it was changed to “Six of One,” then “Friends Like Us,” and finally, “Friends.”
A lot of celebrities were on “Friends” including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Robin Williams, Alec Baldwin, Danny DeVito, and Julia Roberts.
But, do you remember Sarah Ferguson?
Actually, she was on “Friends” too. Fergie’s daughters, Eugenie and Beatrice, were obsessed with the sitcom. The Duchess of York was very nervous while filming, and Matt LeBlanc went over her lines with her.
"The One with Ross' Wedding" episode, where Sarah Ferguson played a role, was positively perceived by the American public. Nevertheless, it was badly received in the UK and was highly criticized for the one-dimensional portrayal of Britain and the British.
Sarah Ferguson played the role of herself, and it was indeed a fascinating experience.
Reportedly, actors are hoping for the “Friends” revival, but Matt LeBlanc is against it. In the interview with the InStyle, Jennifer Aniston said:
Before that show ended, people were asking if we were coming back. Courteney [Cox] and Lisa [Kudrow] and I talk about it. I fantasize about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had. I don’t know what it would look like today, but you never know. So many shows are being successfully rebooted. I know Matt LeBlanc doesn’t want to be asked that question anymore. But maybe we could talk him into it.
“Friends” is indeed the legendary American sitcom, which we will watch and remember for many years. And, of course, we are hoping for the revival!
