Friends' Reunion Special in The Works! [UPDATES & DETAILS HERE]

Close

Jennifer Aniston once said it wouldn't happen.

But according to The Hollywood Reporter, there will be an "unscripted" "Friends" reunion special and it's currently on its initial stages.

After years of waiting, fans will finally get what they want and get a proper reunion show.

It is reported that HBO Max is currently in negotiations with the cast and creators of the show. However, there are still no deals that have been signed. 

"It is far from done and agreements with cast and creatives still need to be hammered out."

It's also been reported that the NBC sitcom's 236 episodes will be homed with HBO Max. Warner reportedly outbid Netflix for the exclusive streaming of the show for $85 million per year for the next five years. 

According to reports, Warner Media's Entertainment Chairman, Bob Greenblatt, has been the biggest advocate for the reunion. 

While talks are still ongoing and slightly far from confirmed, if everything comes together, the entire "Friends" cast would have a reunion. It would feature Jennifer Aniston as Rachel, Courteney Cox as Monica, Lisa Kudrow as Pheobe, David Schimmer as Ross, Matthew Perry as Chandler and Matt LeBlanc as Joey. 

Creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman are also going to be involved in the reunion in some special capacity. 

"Friends" has been the defining spirit of 90s TV sitcom. During its worldwide celebration of the show's 25thanniversary, Jen's selfie with her co-stars set a new Guinness World Record for the fastest time to reach one million followers, which shows how popular the cast and the show continues to be. 

While it seemed to be a joke at first and Jen has completely ruled out a full reboot, she later admitted that there "might be something in the making."

"We would love for there to be something, but we don't know what something is. So we're just trying."

In September, "Friends" Co-Creator and Executive Producer Marta Kauffman denied that there will ever be a reboot. 

"The show was about that time in life when friends are your family. It's not going to beat what we did." 

But this isn't going to be the first time that they will be reuniting. 

Back in 2016, NBC held a mini-reunion. The cast were present except Matthew Perry who wasn't able to make it in person. 

In 2014, Jimmy Kimmel was able to convince Jen, Lisa and Courteney to do a sketch in a replica of the original set. It was more of a fan fiction than an actual script.
