Could we *be* any more excited? Warning: we're just getting started.
Yes, Friends fans, feel free to rejoice, as a book chronicling the history and legacy of the beloved sitcom has been published in celebration of the show’s 25th anniversary next year.
The book is titled Friends: I’ll Be There For You and is written by author Kelsey Miller. It explores both the history of the show and why it continues to appeal and find a new audience among younger viewers.
“The unique thing about Friends is that it’s never really left the cultural conversation. It didn’t fade away and then have a comeback, the way that some shows do. I think it clicks with different audiences for different reasons, but it’s always been a show that people talk about,” Kelsey explains.
“As an out-and-proud Friends fan, I can’t wait to share this retrospective, which will cover everything from the show's early development, to its most iconic moments, and even some of the missteps it made, which you'd never see on television today,” she adds.
The book also promises a look at the numerous high-profile guest stars (Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Tom Selleck and Reese Witherspoon to name a few) and, of course, Jennifer Aniston's famous 'Rachel' haircut.
It’s hard to believe that more than two decades have gone by since the gang first walked into Central Perk in 1994, but it's even more astounding to note that Friends continues to draw approximately 16 million viewers a week in reruns - and that's not including those watching the ten series on Netflix.
This is undoubtedly a must-read for all Friends fans.
