'Friends' debuted on NBC in September 1994 from creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman. At the time, its cast members (Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer) were relatively unknown, starring in failed sitcom pilots as well as guest rolls in other television shows. By the time the show wrapped its first season, the actors became six of the most recognizable faces on television, averaging more than 20 million viewers a week.
Over the course of 10 seasons, the characters entered relationships, broke up, moved in, moved out, got hired and fired from jobs, had children, got married, got divorced (namely Ross) and enjoyed lots of coffee until its final season (its 10th) in May 2004, which had a two-part series finale that was watched by more than 50 million viewers.
Twenty years following its premiere and ten years since its finale, the cast is constantly asked whether or not they will all get together for a reunion special or even a feature film. Cox recently spoke in an interview with OTRC.com about the possibility of a 'Friends' reunion.
'David Arquette used to have a great idea and he said, 'What if you guys do an episode of 'Friends' every Thanksgiving. Just come back for that one week to say what is everyone doing in the last year ... and we didn't listen, we didn't do it, so now it's too late,' Cox said.
Take a look back at the cast of 'Friends,' then and now beginning on the next slide.
