Stop teasing us, willya? The makers of ”Friends” have said this upcoming ninth season will almost certainly be the wrap-up for TV’s top sitcom. The actors have been busy making post-”Friends” career plans. Even NBC Entertainment chief Jeff Zucker, who’d dearly love to keep the show on the air, says he’s bracing for the end. We’ve got about nine months to prepare ourselves mentally for the finale. And then, Lisa Kudrow says she’d like to see the show continue for a 10th season, Variety reports.

Kudrow made her remarks on Carrie Fisher’s Oxygen talk show, ”Conversations from the Edge with Carrie Fisher.” In an episode airing Aug. 18, the princess from another famous franchise asks Kudrow if this is really going to be ”Friends”’ last season. ”You know now I hope not,” Kudrow says. Then, in an elocution worthy of Phoebe, she says, ”I’m actually comfortable saying I’m not. Which means it probably will be the last year.”

Not ready for the show to end, she apparently means. ”You know we all get along, and we still have fun and the writers are still working really hard and they do good stories,” she says. ”You look around and you see that a lot of reasons shows finish is [that] the ratings are really bad. We were No. 1 for the first time ever in our eighth season.” So will she still be there for you? Stay tuned.
