Not to be outdone by HBO's announcement of a standalone streaming service (although totally outdone by Warner Bros.' DC slate), Netflix has picked up a few 'Friends' of its own, 236 to be exact. The streaming service confirms today that all episodes of Monica, Chandler, Joe, Rachel, Phoebe and Ross will be ready to watch in time for New Years' 2015, as announced by Gunther and the Rembrandts.
On a day when movies and TV alike confront a bit of self-doubt in over-stuffing superhero films and retreading major classics, this industry is nothing, if not consistent. Next up for the remake treatment is Neil Simon classic 'The Odd Couple' for CBS, starring perennial 'Friends' castoff Matthew Perry, and another to be named later!
Well, so much for NBC's 2012 lineup. After yesterday putting 'Guys With Kids' and '1600 Penn' in the ground, NBC's Matthew Perry-fronted 'Go On' has officially been given the axe. Irony jokes aside, we had hoped Perry might finally find post-'Friends' success, and 'Go On' certainly had some strong moments, but to ultimately no avail. Full details on the cancellation inside!
Understandably, 2013 has become a banner year for TV reunion in that 'Arrested Development' will finally dish out Netflix's revival season on May 26, while even the dormant 'Veronica Mars' got its act together for a fan-funded feature film, but the latest rumors have little merit, despite their long reach. Sources lacking credibility yesterday spread news of a 'Friends' reunion season, but despite the rumor's prevalence, no such thing will likely ever take place. Find out why inside!
NBC's 'Go On' might have lost a bit of momentum without 'The Voice' as a lead-in, but the series will gain at least a few more 'Friends' in the comings weeks. Marking 'Go On's first 'Friends' reunion for former star Matthew Perry, Courtney Cox will put Monica and Chandler back together for an upcoming guest appearance. Find out how Courtney Cox will 'Go On' inside!
As much as we love the work of Aaron Sorkin, it won't last forever. One day 'The Newsroom' will run its course, as 'The West Wing' fades into memory, and forgotten efforts like 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip' become cautionary tales. So what better way to pay tribute to one of Aaron Sorkin's fallen, than to reunite 'Studio 60' stars Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford? Find out who Whitford will play on NBC's 'Go On' inside!
For every Dane Cook three-camera sitcom the network adds to its ranks, it's nice to know that NBC occasionally plays to its strengths, and our sense of nostalgia.
Former 'Friends' star Matthew Perry has been tapped to return to the network that made him a star, this time taking up a new single-camera pilot 'Go On.'
