It’s the news we’ve been waiting for more than a decade for: a Friends reunion special is apparently ‘in the works.’ Could we BE any more excited?
Super fans of the hit 90s sitcom (that’ll be all of us, then) are over the moon to hear that despite all the previous denials and back and forth speculations, the show’s creators are reportedly working on a special reunion episode with all six cast members.
According to stories from both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer are currently in negotiation with Friends creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman about an unscripted (yes, unscripted) programme.
Although the reunion show is not a done deal yet, sources seem pretty positive that we’ll see Rachel and Ross, Monica and Chandler and Phoebe and Joey return to our screens at some point in the future, with the new show apparently set to stream on HBO Max in the US.
The news comes after the show marked its 25th anniversary this year. Last month, Jennifer Aniston who plays Rachel Green joined Instagram, with her debut post being a group selfie with her Friends co-stars, much to the world’s excitement.
Designed to recreate some of the characters most distinctive 90s and early 00s looks, the Wear To Work collection, which was in collaborated with Bloomingdales, included everything from leather trousers, pinstriped suits and mini skirts to polo necks and hints of leopard print.
But despite the tributes, still there was no show confirmed. In fact, Aniston appeared on the Ellen Degeneres Show in late October where she said that there wouldn’t be a Friends reboot, but did reveal that the cast were working on something together.
‘We would love for there to be something but we don’t know what that something is,’ she said. ‘So we’re just trying. We’re working together on something.’
Could this new reunion rumour be that something? We’ve got our fingers firmly crossed. However, HBO Max and Warner Bros. Television, which produced the series, have so far declined to comment.
