Friends star Lisa Kudrow says reunion will only happen when cast can all get together

Even though many of New Zealand's tight lockdown rules have been lifted, many countries around the world are still dealing with their own restrictions.

Physical distancing rules have meant that many TV shows and films have had to pause production - including the much hyped reunion of the 90s sitcom 'Friends'.

In a recent interview Lisa Kudrow, who plays Phoebe Buffay, said that the reunion will only happen once the gang can physically all get back together again - putting to rest some rumours about a virtual reunion.

"There hasn't really been any talk about doing it remotely," she told Digital Spy. "I mean, it was an immediate no if this was brought up. That's not what this is. We are not doing it remotely."

"I'm just as proud of Friends as I ever was. I never stopped loving doing the show, so my memories of it are just as fond now as they were back then."

"It's funny… I remember shooting the first years and the very end much better than the middle years, but it's great that it's still shown on TV. It's great that younger and younger people – many who weren't even born when we started shooting Friends – are now fans of the show."

Speaking about what fans can expect from the reunion, Lisa was suitably vague. She asked if the reunion was going to be an actual episode or more of a sit down chat about the team's time on the show - here's what she said...

"There are other things in it. There are other things to it; things I shouldn't really talk about because they should be good – but those things can't happen [right now]. We just decided on another date and we'll see if we can do it then."

We'll have to wait a little longer for the reunion, but we're sure it'll be worth it!
