Series Logline.

Three young men and three young women -- of the BFF kind -- live in the same apartment complex and face life and love in New York. They're not above sticking their noses into one another's business and swapping romantic partners, which always leads to the kind of hilarity average people will never experience -- especially during breakups.

"Friends" Status Report.

What we know and what we don't.

Widely considered to be one of the best American sitcoms ever produced, "Friends" is 235 episodes of pop-culture goodness. The series aired on NBC in the United States and Canada from September 22, 1994 to May 6, 2004.

"Friends: The Reunion" aired on HBO Max in the USA on May 27, 2021. It's unscripted and not really an episode, per se. It's more like a documentary with the original cast, plus guest stars.

No additional seasons or episodes are planned.

We have 16 scripts/teleplays from several seasons of "Friends".

What we have available are not transcripts. These are the real professionally written scripts, also called teleplays. They're scanned and digitized. Some are a little difficult to read because of that, but don't be discouraged from studying them.

But, they're a valuable resource for writers who aspire to script comedy. And, yes, fans of the show are more than welcome to download these scripts. After all, we're all Friends.
