Could we be any more excited?!
After years of wishing, hoping, and flat-out begging, Friends fans might finally get a reunion special. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the six main cast members—Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer—as well as the creators, David Crane and Marta Kauffman, are in talks to reunite via HBO Max.
As much as we would love to see an actual episode showing where all the characters are now, 15 years later, the reunion is for an unscripted special with the beloved gang. The cast has reportedly been adamant over the years that they wouldn't be up for a scripted reboot of any kind.
Though this is the closest we’ve come to any kind of revival since NBC held a mini-Friends reunion in 2016 to honor legendary director and producer James Burrows, sources at THR warn us not to get too excited just yet. The networks are still ironing out the details of the deal, and if that can be decided upon, the next feat will be working around everyone’s schedules.
If all goes well, you’ll find me doing the Chandler and Joey victory dance until the project is released.
