The Entire ‘Friends’ Cast Has Reportedly Signed On to a One-Hour Reunion Special
“Friends” fans, rejoice! An hour-long reunion special with all six BFFs—has reportedly been confirmed and set to happen in the spring.
The special will likely be used to launch the HBO Max streaming service when it launches in May.
Well, hopefully. A representative for HBO told Fox News that reports for the special are “speculation and are not confirmed.” But other news outlets state that it has indeed been, in fact, confirmed, and we can start celebrating immediately. So head to Central perk, grab yourself an espresso, and get excited.
It turns out that the reunion was set to happen last year, but fell through over their wages. But that doesn’t seem to be an issue this time, as it’s been reported that each actor and actress will receive $3 million to $4 million per paycheck for appearing. That’s on par with what Netflix offers big comedians to headline one-hour standup specials.
While this isn’t an extension of the show by any means, but a one-time, one-hour long show, which the outlet reported as “a retrospective and interviews with the cast.” There are also rumors it could be potentially hosted by Ellen DeGeneres.
No matter what it ends up being, we can’t wait to see Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc together on screen once again—the first time it’ll happen in the last 16 years (even though it seems like it’s been less, since they’re always reconnecting on social media)!
Are you a fan of Friends? Will you be watching the long-awaited reunion special when it comes out? What do you think it’ll be like?
