Matthew Perry Wishes 'Friends' Hadn't Ended, Regrets Not Doing Season 11

It has been 17 years since Friends aired its final episode on television back in 2004.

The show, which saw a group of six friends navigate life and love in New York City, had an epic 10-year run, earning it a permanent place in pop culture history forever.

The sitcom became known for catapulting show stars Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green), Courteney Cox (Monica Geller), David Schwimmer (Ross Geller), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay), Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing) and Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani) to fame.

News that the show would not be renewed for an eleventh instalment devastated fans around the world, but it seems it's not only fans who wish they could turn back time.

When the cast were asked in an interview with People what piece of advice they'd give their younger self, Perry said: "Do an eleventh season."

Aniston said she wouldn't change anything about the experience and added the cast will "be a family for life."

Whilst it might be too late for an eleventh season, fans are guaranteed to get a dose of nostalgia in the upcoming Friends: The Reunion special.

A trailer for the one-off unscripted episode dropped on Wednesday and teased a look at what to expect.

The two-minute clip shows the cast reuniting on set for the first time, revisiting the characters' famous apartments and playing Friends trivia.

It also shows them doing a sit-down cast interview with Late Late Show host James Corden on the iconic Central Perk couch, in front of the fountain featured in the title credits of the show.

During the interview, Aniston revealed the producer on the show she was working on at the time didn't think Friends would make her a success.

"I remember I went to the producer of the show I was on and he said 'that show's not going to make you a star,'" she said in the trailer.

The episode is expected to welcome a host of celebrity guests, including singers Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, K-pop supergroup BTS, actors Reese Witherspoon and Tom Selleck and activist Malala Yousafzai - to name a few.

The line-up has been met with some criticism from fans of the show who were disappointed it did not include any Black celebrity guests.

Others questioned the relevance of some of the guests to the show.

HBO did not respond to Newsweek's request for comment at the time.

Friends: The Reunion will air on HBO Max on May 27.
