Are we finally getting to see a “Friends” reunion on TV? Maybe even a movie?

It’s been 10 years since the last episode aired, but fans just can’t get enough of Rachel Green, Monica Geller, Phoebe Buffay, Ross Geller, Joey Tribbiani and Chandler Bing. The ’90s show was just so popular that Netflix decided to made all episodes available for streaming last Jan. 1, 2015.

Matt LeBlanc, who plays Joey on the show, says he gets approached all the time by both old and recent fans of “Friends.” He feels that the character’s friendship was such a timeless concept that everyone can relate to.

“We never dealt with anything current or political. The only thing that really dates the show is when someone makes a phone call, and they pull the antenna out to make a call,” he told Design and Trend.

In an interview on “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” Matt shared that some fans, especially those who just recently watched the shows, were surprised to see that he looked… old.

“They would say, ‘What happened to you, dude?’” the “Episodes” star shared laughing.

In spite of admitting that he still watches “Friends” re-run, his favorite being the Thanksgiving episode where he got a turkey stuck in his head, Matt says he doesn’t see a reunion in the near future. He even goes far as saying that it SHOULD NOT happen.

“The show was about this finite period of time in your life where it’s after college, but before your life really starts, where your friends, no pun intended, are your family, and you lean on one another, and help one another, and support one another, and care for one another, and do the things a family does for one another and that’s what it was about,” he revealed in Us Weekly.

That makes a whole lot of sense, but don’t you think it would be nice to see how the entire gang’s doing after 10 years?
