Friends: Why Joey Was The Only Friend Who Got A Spinoff


Friends gave proper closure to its main characters in its final season, but Joey’s future was left somewhat open, and it was addressed in the spinoff series Joey – but why was he the only one in the group to get his own TV show? Although the 1990s saw a variety of sitcoms that went on to become classics, few have had the same impact as Friends. Created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, Friends premiered on NBC in 1994 and lived on for a total of 10 seasons, coming to an end in 2004. Friends left the audience with a bunch of memorable jokes, moments, and characters, as well as with a spinoff series that, sadly, wasn’t as successful as the original series.
