One of the most anticipated television reunion of all time, ‘Friends’ is going to happen soon. The special two hour show, which pays tribute to director James Burrows, will bring back the original six-member cast including Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer.
Twelve years after the show’s finale, the cast of ‘Friends’ will reunite on February 21, confirmed NBC head Bob Greeblatt on Wednesday according to E News.
NBC’s Robert Greenblatt said, “Hoping that all six of them will be in the same room at the same time, but I’m not sure we can logistically pull that off.”
Burrows, who directed 15 “Friends” episodes as well as a number of other comedy favourites like “Taxi”, “Cheers”, “Frasier” and “Will & Grace”, recently wrapped the 1,000th episode of television he has filmed in his career, reported E!Online.
NBC also took to Twitter to release the official statement on the same.

Friends, which lasted 10 seasons finally came to an end in May 2004.
Jennifer Aniston, who played Rachel in Friends, became a household name post her appearance on the hit show.
Previous efforts have been unsuccessful, with at least one cast member resisting a reunion behind the scenes.
James Burrows has also directed hit show ‘Cheers’. He had also appeared in the episode “The One with the Butt” of ‘Friends’ which was aired in the first season of the show.
