​Netflix Teases 'Friends' 2018 Plot Lines And They're Amazing

As you probably know, Netflix recently made the bold move to add classic comedy series Friends to its extensive online streaming service, confirming it with a simple tweet that read: 'The One With The Show Everyone's Been Asking Us To Add.'

Of course, people were chuffed to hear the news, with many people having been glued to the series not only during its 1994-2004 run, but also through the many, many re-runs in the years that followed.

Remember this one? Of course you do - it's revolutionised the way any of us say a certain little word beginning with P...



While there are 10 years' worth of episodes for everyone to binge-watch to their hearts' content, people still hanker after a modern-day reunion.

And now Netflix has delivered the goods - well, sort of, ingeniously teasing some plot lines that would be perfect for a 2018 reboot (which isn't happening any time soon, but it's still nice to dream).

"FRIENDS 2018 PLOTLINES," the tweet read, before listing out episodes featuring everything from Ed Sheeran to Tide Pods.


The last suggestion was a particular killer - 'The One Where The Gang Realizes Their Privilege'.

It prompted many others to get involved, too, putting forward their own modern-day twists.



Twitter user Will asked: "Would Ellen Pompeo be playing the same character that she played when Chandler and Ross fought over her in college?"

Knowing full well what the fast-acting power of the internet is capable of, Netflix then quickly replied: "Someone make an elaborate fan theory of this ASAP".


Someone dutifully obliged.

Any fans of another 90s hit, Seinfeld, may also know about the power of Twitter when it comes to dreaming up the reboots that may never be. @SeinfeldToday questions 'What if Seinfeld were still on air?', answering the hypothetical situation with a series of tweets like:

Ah, the Internet strikes again.
