Even decades later, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, the series, continue to remain everyone’s favourite sitcom. And while the bone-tickling jokes from the series are making generations of fans laugh, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey and Ross are back into our lives through a book!
The book, ‘I’ll Be There for You’, a look at the history and enduring appeal of Friends has been acquired by Harlequin imprint Hanover Square Press for publication in 2019. The book will be released on the 25th anniversary of the show’s debut. The book is being penned by Kelsey Miller. The book is pitched in the vein of ‘Seinfeldia’, which not only looked at the history of ‘Seinfeld’ but assessed its cultural impact and was a bit of a surprise hit last summer. The book promises a look at the origins of the show and the numerous high profile guest stars (Bruce Willis, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and much more).
Friends, which debuted on NBC in 1994 and ran for 10 seasons, was one of the biggest hits of the ’90s, ranking in the top five most viewed shows for nine of 10 seasons. It continues to draw about 16 million viewers a week in reruns. The show is particularly popular among millennials, sparking a whole round of articles exploring why.
However, a particular publication date hasn’t been set yet, but it’s due to debut sometime in 2019, which marks the 25th anniversary of the “Friends” premiere.
