There's no "Friends" reunion in the near future. There has been rumor circulating on the web that NBC plans to revive the popular sitcom, but a spokesperson for Warner Bros. TV, which produced the show, tells Zap2it the report is false.

An NBC source also denies the purported "Friends" revival plan, saying the story is "not true." Another insider additionally tells E! News that the network has had a talk about a "Friends" reunion, but there has been "no forward motion" on the idea.

Fans were led to believe that there would be a "Friends" reunion after a site called Star Media claimed that NBC had confirmed it would launch a new season of the Jennifer Aniston-starring series in 2014. A similar rumor surfaced last year, which was quickly debunked by Matthew Perry via his Twitter.

The latest "Friends" reunion rumor came hot on the heels of the release of "Friends: The Complete Series" Blu-ray box set on Tuesday, April 16. It includes all 236 remastered episodes, 17 hours of extras from the original DVDs and more than three hours of new bonus features.

Though a "Friends" reunion isn't happening, the stars have visited each other's shows in the past years. Matt LeBlanc once appeared on Lisa Kudrow's "Web Therapy", Kudrow has guest starred on Courteney Cox's "Cougar Town" and most recently Cox stopped by Matthew Perry's "Go On".

I love Friends TV show and have since the age of 7, i am now 14 and have watched all the friends episodes repeatedly over 50 times. Friends describes my life and i have never got bored of watching it. I know every word said in the episodes and would love for there to be a reunion as a long 2 part episode. If the rumor is true about the new friends series i think it will spoil the imagination of what happens next, and that should be left on what the audience decide. In my opinion the six friends should get together for a last time to do one last episode to bring old time watchers back to the audience, i think they owe it to us and to the show! The original writers were great so i don't believe another episode could be half as good!!! I would love to meet the cast of friends but unfortunetly i cant:( so watching them is as close as i'l ever get...
