Sorry, But 'Friends' Isn't Coming Back Next Year

No matter how hard you're wishing for it.

If you've been on Facebook this weekend, you've probably seen at least one person sharing some VERY EXCITING NEWS: Friends, your fave show from the '90s/2000s was finally coming back.

Exciting, right?

Except, erm, this news is NOT TRUE. It's not even a tiny bit true. It's been completely made up by a random, entirely false source on Facebook.

Here's what happened:

An account called "David Schwimer" shared an image with "Fall 2018" in the Friends font, along with the frame from the apartment's peephole and the NBC logo.

Along with the image, "David Schwimer" wrote: "It has just been made official. All 6 cast members have signed on we're back for ONE more season!! #theonewheretheycomeback #Friends2018."

That status was shared more than 280,000 times, with a ton of people commenting and tagging their friends along with general cries of "YAY IT'S BACK."

But sorry to burst everyone's bubble: There is no news to suggest that Friends is coming back in 2018. It will probably NEVER come back, considering just how many times the show's cast have said they're not really up for doing another season.

If you were able to take a peek at the post, since it's recently been taken down, it's pretty clear that it's ~completely fake~.

For one thing, it's been shared by an unverified account called "David Schwimer," with the search name "Ross Gheler." And that's weird, because Ross Geller is played by David Schwimmer. LOL!

The account also appears to have been created the same day the post was shared, which indicates that the account was made for the sole purpose of tricking us all into thinking a Friends reunion was coming.

To recap: Friends is not coming back. That post is fake. Please feel free to tell any of your friends who shared it that they have been FOOLED.
