It’s one thing to comprehend the fact that Friends ended 15 years ago. YES 15 YEARS.


If that’s not enough to already make you feel old, fans are picking up on something that’s going to do the trick.


Thanks to Netflix picking up the show and the constant re-runs on Comedy Central, Friends has by no means faced the risk of fading off into the background.

Because of that, fans have picked up on a small detail that will most-definitely ruin your day. @Justlucyslife shared the realisation no Twitter, posting the following tweet:

“Ok so I was watching Friends last night and Ross was filming a tape for Emma’s 18th birthday and Chandler says the line ‘Hi Emma. It’s 2020. Have you woken up from your nap yet?’ And it’s just dawned on me that 2020 is NEXT YEAR. Emma would be 18 NEXT YEAR.”

Yep, Ross and Rachel’s daughter would be turning 18 NEXT YEAR – how do you feel about that? Crippling anxiety? Yep.

Don’t believe them? Check out exactly what Chandler says in this clip…

I mean, it shouldn’t be that surprising – I guess that’s how time works really, but it doesn’t make it any less of a staggering realisation. I really need to get my life together.

It recently emerged that the cast of the show were still earning an eye-watering amount from the show thanks to those constant re-runs we mentioned earlier.

According to USA Today, Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), Matthew Perry (Chandler), David Schwimmer (Ross) and Matt LeBlanc (Joey) all still receive a huge amount of money.

Each of the main six earn 2% of the syndication revenue the show makes every year. Incredibly, Friends makes Warner Bros $1 billion each year STILL, which actually means that the main cast members get paid around $20 million annually.
