On this episode of History of the ’90s, host Kathy Kenzora takes a deep dive into Friends, one of the most iconic TV shows of the decade.

She’ll try to understand how the show about six 20-somethings in New York became a global phenomenon and why it continues to capture the hearts of fans around the world 25 years later.

Friends was created by three ex-New Yorkers who remembered what it was like when they were trying to navigate an uncertain future after college and friends were family. History of the ’90s will take you behind the scenes as the creators put together the cast and prepared for the pilot episode, which aired on Sept. 22, 1994.
