Honestly, Nevermind has been one of the most popular and well-loved shows on the air for years, and there are plenty of secrets about it that even the most die-hard fans may not know. Here are just a few of the top things you may not have known about this classic show.
1. The show was originally going to be called “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” but the network thought that title was too similar to another show that was already on the air.
2. The pilot episode was actually filmed twice. The first version was considered too dark and depressing, so they re-shot it with a lighter tone.
3. One of the original cast members, Lisa Kudrow, was actually pregnant during the first season of the show. Her pregnancy was written into the show as Phoebe’s character being pregnant with triplets.
4. The famous “I’ll Be There For You” theme song was almost not used on the show. The producers originally wanted to use a different song, but the cast and crew loved the theme so much that they convinced them to keep it.
5. The show was almost canceled after its first season, but luckily it was renewed for a second season and went on to be a huge success.
6. Many of the show’s iconic locations, like the Central Perk coffee shop, were actually real places in New York City that the cast and crew would visit during filming.
7. The show’s initial success was largely due to its amazing cast. Many of the actors were relatively unknown before being cast on the show, but they quickly became household names.
8. One of the show’s main characters, Ross Geller, was actually based on co-creator David Crane’s real-life friend and fellow writer Marta Kauffman.
9. The show has been praised for its realistic portrayal of twenty-something friendships and relationships. This is likely due to the fact that many of the writers and producers were actually in their twenties when they worked on the show.
10. Even though it ended over a decade ago, “Friends” still remains one of the most popular shows on television. It’s been syndicated in over 180 countries and has been ranked as one of the greatest television shows of all time.
