Still holding out hope for that "Friends" reunion? Then listen closely to this message from creator Marta Kauffman - it's 'not going to happen, never going to happen."

Kauffman even repeated herself as she once again shut down talk about possibly reuniting Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey, Phoebe and Ross more than 10 years after the show went off the air.

"Here's the thing," the Emmy winner told Headlines & Global News and a small group of reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. "The show was about the time in your life where your friends are your family. That time in their life, as soon as they get married and had children, is over. It changes. It couldn't ever be that and it will only ever be unsatisfying. So leave it alone. Leave it alone."

Kauffman also had some strong words about the $1 million payday per episode that each member of the cast received in the final two seasons.

"A million dollars an episode is kinda ridiculous," she said earlier at a panel that included several top Netflix showrunners (via TheWrap). "Let's be honest, that's a lot of money."

The "Grace and Frankie" co-creator was responding to a question about Netflix not sharing its viewing numbers with its showrunners and actors, and whether that took power away from the talent to negotiate a better contract, according to TheWrap.

As for her new Netflix series starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, who received an Emmy nomination for her work in the first season, Kauffman is thrilled with the feedback the show has received from fans and critics alike.

"It's gotten a much wider audience than we expected and a much younger audience. It has a big LGBT audience. We couldn't be happier," she told reporters.

"Grace and Frankie" will return for a second season in 2016.
