The Age of Revivals spurred along by the likes of Netflix’s Fuller House or whatever NBC drags out of the dumpster next has many hopeful that Friends will finally get its oft-discussed reunion. Nope! Co-creator Marta Kauffman bluntly states “reunions suck,” at last putting an end to speculation.
On a day when movies and TV alike confront a bit of self-doubt in over-stuffing superhero films and retreading major classics, this industry is nothing, if not consistent. Next up for the remake treatment is Neil Simon classic 'The Odd Couple' for CBS, starring perennial 'Friends' castoff Matthew Perry, and another to be named later!
'Friends' star Matthew Perry spent a good portion of his early career dealing with an addiction to alcohol and opiates. Now that he's on the other side of it, he's turning one of his homes into a rehab facility.
Matthew Perry attended a Los Angeles Kings hockey game (as usual) on Friday, May 10 -- hours after NBC announced the cancellation of his show 'Go On' -- when an ill-informed broadcaster decided to congratulate him.
Well, so much for NBC's 2012 lineup. After yesterday putting 'Guys With Kids' and '1600 Penn' in the ground, NBC's Matthew Perry-fronted 'Go On' has officially been given the axe. Irony jokes aside, we had hoped Perry might finally find post-'Friends' success, and 'Go On' certainly had some strong moments, but to ultimately no avail. Full details on the cancellation inside!
Understandably, 2013 has become a banner year for TV reunion in that 'Arrested Development' will finally dish out Netflix's revival season on May 26, while even the dormant 'Veronica Mars' got its act together for a fan-funded feature film, but the latest rumors have little merit, despite their long reach. Sources lacking credibility yesterday spread news of a 'Friends' reunion season, but despite
'Cougar Town' star Courteney Cox filmed a cameo on Matthew Perry's new NBC sitcom 'Go On,' and the TV couple formerly known as Chandler and Monica Bing on 'Friends' were super stoked to be back together.
