The entire cast of 'Friends' are in talks for a special reunion show
These past few weeks, Friends fans have been relentlessly teased at the opportunity of having Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer reunite once again for one more episode of what is arguably the greatest sitcom ever made.
Last month, Jennifer Aniston made her Instagram debut, and her first post was none other than a snap featuring all six of the original cast members just hanging out. She captioned the pic: "And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM 👋🏻"
And if this wasn't a big enough tease, Courteney Cox posted a picture last week revealing she had been having lunch with her co-star and on-screen husband Matthew Perry.
Could we BE any more excited about a reunion?!
Well, perhaps we won't have to be excited for much longer, as according to The Hollywood Reporter, a Friends reunion is in the works over at HBO Max, and they are looking to get all six of the original cast to feature.
The Reporter adds that as well as the six stars, series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman are also being sought after to join the unscripted reunion. What this reunion will entail is still unclear, but it could see the cast come together to reminisce about the days on set, provide a personal insight into what happened behind-the-scenes, or simply provide unheard stories from their times on the show.
But The Hollywood Reporter insists that agreements are yet to be signed and that everybody that could potentially be involved in the project is still "in talks".
Is this reunion what Jennifer Aniston alluded to when she told Ellen "anything could happen"?
Appearing on the Ellen show, Aniston gave a clear "no" to a reboot of the sitcom. However, the 50-year-old did suggest the cast would be up for doing "something", saying: "Listen, we would love for there to be something, but we don't know what that something is. So we're just trying really, we're working on something."
Despite the excitement around a reunion, show creator Marta Kauffman spoke to Rolling Stone about why a Friends reunion would only leave people disappointed: "There are several reasons [why there won't be a Friends reunion]."
Check out the incredible moment 'Monica' and 'Richard' bumped into each other in a New York restaurant:
Kauffman continued: "One, the show is about a time in your life when your friends are your family. It's not that time anymore. All we'd be doing is putting those six actors back together, but the heart of the show would be gone.
"Two, I don't know what good it does us. The show is doing just fine, people love it. [A reunion] could only disappoint. 'The One Where Everyone's Disappointed'."
Ouch. That's the reality check I really didn't need this morning.
