Is ‘Friends’ finally getting a reunion special?
The highly anticipated reunion of “Friends” which follows six best friends living in Manhattan, New York may soon become a reality.
The stars of the TV show “Friends” and its creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman are in talks to reunite on HBO Max, as per The Hollywood Reporter last Tuesday, Nov. 12.
However, the entertainment magazine’s source said that the deal is far from done. The details of the agreement with the cast and the creatives still need to be sorted out.
There may be one unscripted reunion special featuring the six main characters: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer.
The report also stated that if and when the deal follows through, the next challenge would be synching everyone’s schedule.
What appears to be clear is that a “Friends” reboot is off the table. Jennifer Aniston confirmed it herself with a blatant “no” about a “Friends” TV show on Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime show last Oct. 27.
“We would love for there to be something, but we don’t know what that something is,” Aniston said, as seen on the show’s YouTube channel last Oct. 29. “So we’re just trying. We’re working on something.”
HBO Max and Warner Bros. Television declined to comment on the matter as of writing. Cha Lino/NVG
