'Friends' Reunion In The Works With All 6 Original Cast Members
This is not a drill! Could I BE anymore excited?
After years of rumours that the 'Friends' cast would be returning for a reunion - and years of the cast crushing our hopes and dreams - it turns out that dream is finally becoming a reality. In the words of Janice: OH. MY. GOD.
Less than a month after Jennifer Aniston joined Instagram with a fresh selfie of herself with her former co-stars, the gang is in talks with HBO for a reunion special following the show's 25th anniversary.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the six original cast members are involved, as well as the creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman. In recent years, the cast and creators have been adamant that the show would not return in any form, with only few cast members up for it (namely our Jen!). Only recently did Kauffman squash any hopes of a revival, saying at the Tribeca TV Festival:
'We will not be doing a reunion show, we will not be doing a reboot. The show was about that time in life when friends are your family,'
With co-creator David Crane adding:
'We did the show we wanted to do. We got it right, and we put a bow on it.'
The reunion is reported to air on HBO Max, with the news coming just months after HBO and Warner Bros secured a deal for the original 'Friends' series, outbidding rival streaming service Netflix for the rights. While no deal has currently been agreed for the special, this is the first time since the show ended that the cast have all been openly willing to reunite for the small screen.
Speaking on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show back in October, Aniston revealed that the original gang were 'working on something' and that she thought her former co-stars would all be interested in some form of reunion, although the star admitted 'We would love for there to be something, but we don't know what that something is'.
The original show is set to leave Netflix at the end of this year, ready to settle into it's new home HBO Max in May 2020.
