Random website starts 'Friends' reunion rumor
Here's a good policy, kids: If you hear a MASSIVE rumor about a wildly popular TV show and the source is a website you've never heard of and nobody else is reporting the same thing, it's best to be at least cautious. But when you hear a MASSIVE rumor about a wildly popular TV show and the source is a website you've never heard of and said website is claiming that the network "confirmed" the story, even though nobody else is reporting the same thing... That's not called a rumor. That's a lie.
Still, for some reason, lots of people got excited this week about a report from something called StarMedia.Us, which claimed that NBC "reportedly confirmed that they will launch a new season of 'Friends' on 2014." Despite saying the story was confirmed, StarMedia said it was unknown if the original actors would be returning. Then what on earth did NBC allegedly confirm?
Anyway... NBC says there's no truth to the story. Warner Brothers TV says there's no truth to the story. It's unclear why anybody had to write up that an absurd figment of a random website's imagination wasn't true, but... journalism!
There is no "Friends" reunion coming to NBC, confirmed or otherwise. The end.
