There’s a poster doing the rounds on social media with the NBC logo on it that seems to elude to there being a new series of Friends set to hit the small screen in 2018.
So far, so exciting.
There’s only one problem with it. It’s not real.
The post was originally uploaded on a profile that appears to be run by David Schwimmer (aka Ross Geller). It posted the image alongside a caption that read:
“It has just been made official! All 6 cast members have signed on and we’re back for ONE more season!! #Theonewheretheycomeback #Friends2018”
It was then shared more than 360,000 times. Facebook’s attempts to tackle fake news appear to be falling short, as sadly, none of it was true.
Suspicions probably should have been raised after fans noticed that the page had only been active for four days and that the reunion was its first ever post.
Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow have both rejected the idea of reuniting for another series in recent interviews, too.
Looks like fans will have to make do with the reruns.
