Friends, much like The Office, is enjoying more of an obsessive following than ever, partially thanks to streaming services, and of course also because of its brilliant cast and script. Seriously, who doesn't want to keep spending time with our Central Perk pals?
News spread that Friends fans would be getting a special treat when the series jumps over to the new HBO Max streaming platform. The entire cast, consisting of Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, and Matthew Perry, all shared very exciting posts on Instagram last week to announce a big piece of news. As we previously reported, their vague announcement is expected to be for an hour-long special, reuniting the original actors on the new streaming service. If that isn't perfect, I don't know what is.
Along with the special, subscribers to HBO Max will have access to the 200+ hilarious episodes that make up the series.
So in the spirit of warming up for what will be an inevitable Friends marathon, here's about 25 solid gold minutes of bloopers, in parts one and two, for your enjoyment.
The reunion show does not have a release date yet, but HBO Max is debuting in May.
