Fans of American TV show Friends finally have a reason to celebrate. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the main cast and creators of the show will be getting together for an unscripted reunion special which will be streamed on HBO Max.
However, things may fall apart due to the cast’s schedules. As of now, the makers as well as the streaming platform have declined to comment on the subject.
If all goes well, the special will feature core cast members Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer. Along with the actors, the episode will also see creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman making a special appearance.
Friends is currently available for streaming on Netflix. However, it will leave the streaming giant by the year’s end as their contract will come to a close. It will make its debut on HBO Max in 2020. Apparently, Warner Media (which backs HBO Max) paid 425 million dollars to keep the hit American show on its site for the next five years.
According to THR’s report, the main cast is more than willing to participate in the reunion.
Recently, during her appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, Jennifer Aniston had let slip that something is brewing as far as a Friends reunion is concerned.
“We would love for there to be something, but we don’t know what that something is. So we’re just trying. We’re working on something,” the actor had said.
