It’s official! The cast of “Friends” is getting back together.
The reunion comes after 15 years and 9 months since the gang was last together when the series went off the air in 2004.
Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer will return to the comedy’s original soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. Studios lot to tape the highly-anticipated episode.
The reunion, along with all 236 episodes of the series, will be available to subscribers in time for the launch of the streaming service this May.
“Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together — we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa, and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire Friends library,” said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max. “We think this reunion special will capture that spirit, uniting original and new fans.”
The six stars will reportedly earn between $2.5 million - $3 million for the hour-long reunion. Can they be any more excited?
Matthew Perry was quick to reveal the news by sharing a classic photo of the cast with the caption, "It's happening..." and tagged all his cast mates.
The news comes after it was revealed DVD sales of the '90s series have soared since they were pulled from Netflix on January 1st.
In honor of the show’s 25th anniversary last fall, various brands like Pottery Barn, LEGO and Ralph Lauren offered “Friends”-themed merchandise.
Premiering in 1994, the Must See-TV series aired for ten seasons on NBC until signing off in May 2004.
