Best and worst roles of the 'Friends' cast

On May 27, 2021, the long-awaited “Friends” reunion made its debut on HBO Max. Seventeen years after Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey, and Phoebe turned in the keys to their luxurious West Village pad (there’s no way they could afford it) the gang was finally reunited on the soundstage where it all began.

The reunion was no small feat. Fans had been clamoring for a reboot for years— essentially since the series wrapped in 2004—but the gang’s busy schedules, their high salary demands, and an overall reluctance to mess with a good thing (the series remains one of the most-watched on TV) meant it kept getting put off. While die-hard fans of the show generally loved the special, some critics argued that it was pointless, empty nostalgia that served more as a vanity project than it did to expand its world or storyline.

Regardless of whether you loved or loathed the special, the reintroduction of the “Friends” cast, many of whom have dropped off the A-list in the intervening years, likely has you wondering what else they’ve been up to.
