‘Friends’ remains popular, especially in China

Nearly 25 years ago, Rachel Green stumbled into Central Perk, dripping wet in a wedding dress — and “Friends” was born.

Ahead of the 25-year anniversary this weekend, cast members, fans, and companies worldwide are paying tribute to the iconic decade-long television show that followed six friends through their life in New York.

Several of the starring actors posted the same group photo on Instagram, of the five arm-in-arm strolling down the street.

“Celebrating a Thursday night 25 years ago. Thank you to all of our loyal fans across the world. You’ve certainly been there for us! I love these guys!” posted
