One of the most popular TV series, NBC’s “Friends” just turned 25 this year. It has been two decades, and yet the popularity of the show still seems to have a long way to go. Although like any other show it does have countless mistakes that were even pointed out by the audience themselves, the love for the show surpasses all these things. And for the past 25 years, this series has gained itself more and more fans from the older generation to so much as even children from generation Z.

The main cast of this famous sitcom includes Jennifer Aniston as Rachel Green, Courtney Cox as Monica Geller, Lisa Kudrow as Phoebe Buffay, Matt LeBlanc as Joey Tribbiani, Mathew Perry as Chandler Bing and David Schwimmer as Ross Geller. This series is all about friends that stay throughout life.
While the popularity for the series increased extensively, and so requested the remake of the series. However, it is unlikely for the creators to create again the 10 season sitcom it certainly doesn’t mean that they haven’t tried to mimic. Hollywood indeed attempted to recreate the magic with shows like “How I Met Your Mother”, “The Big Bang Theory” but nothing has been that successful as “Friends”.
What Is The Secret Behind Their Success
“Friends” was funny, and the most significant advantage of the show was that people from any generation could relate to it. The audience could relate to the gang’s habit of getting in trouble. Watching the series made us feel the warmth and love that each person in the show ha for the other person.
It will be wrong to say that the series has not aged. We clearly see the difference but what we still feel new are the jokes and sarcasm put forward by the characters even though they are outdated. Also, the love for the characters makes it much easier to enjoy those jokes.
Most crucially due to the availability of the TV show on Netflix, it could be introduced to the younger audience. Netflix reportedly paid $100 so that it can keep “Friends” for just the year 2019. Moreover, when the streaming services were at their topmost point, and Netflix did not have as many originals, “Friends” was still there.
