Creators Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman and David Crane all participated in the Friends special meeting, which was released today.
Speaking about the show’s origins, Kauffman said, “We were in our twenties in New York, trying to make a living and find love.
“We appealed to our parents and friends. We named Chandler after a friend of mine. We have definitely retired from our lives.
“It’s just about friends,” Crane said. “We follow all of their stories equally, which we felt we hadn’t seen before.
“The one-sentence speech is this: It’s about that time in your life when your friends are your family. “
Along with the creators and a litany of famous guests, Friends: Reunion also saw core cast members Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer come together to remember the beloved sitcom.
