Could we be any more excited over this news?! After months of reports that the cast of Friends might be coming together for a reunion of sorts, it looks like it's officially a done deal.

According to Variety, the original actors, consisting of Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, are signed on for an unscripted special from HBO Max. While previous reports claimed each star would likely earn between $3-$4 million for their appearances, it's now believed their paychecks will be "at least" $2.5 million each.

And to make everything even more real, the beloved actors behind the show themselves are confirming the news! All six stars took to Instagram quickly after the news dropped to share their excitement. "It's happening," they captioned the cute posts.

Of course, fans and fellow celebs can't get enough of it. Aniston's post above received comments such as, "SHUT UP WAIT WHAT," "THIS IS ALL WE HAVE EVER NEEDED," and "I can’t breathe!! What’s is happening here @jenniferaniston." We totally agree with all of this.

Chief content officer at HBO Max, Kevin Reilly, said in a statement of the thrilling news:

"Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together — we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa, and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire ‘Friends’ library. I became aware of ‘Friends’ when it was in the very early stages of development and then had the opportunity to work on the series many years later and have delighted in seeing it catch on with viewers generation after generation. It taps into an era when friends – and audiences – gathered together in real time and we think this reunion special will capture that spirit, uniting original and new fans."

The Friends reunion does not have a release date yet, but HBO Max is debuting this May.
