When news of the Friends cast reuniting broke, we couldn't help but hope for another season of heartwarming humor. However, reports say that they will only appear for a TV special dedicated to the show's legendary creator and director, James Edward Burrows.
As if it couldn't hurt any more, we just learned that Matthew Perry won't be joining the reunion. According to BBC, the actor cannot make it because of his West End play, The End of Longing rehearsals.
However, not all hope is lost. Matthew Perry just announced that he will still be involved in the TV special, saying he will be "taping something."
Perry added: "It's not the Friends reunion everyone is hoping for," Perry explained. "They are celebrating Jim Burrows, who was a director of Friends, and the five of them are going to be on this special, and I'm going to introduce them from here, because I'm doing the play here, so I can't be there."
