Friends Reunion Reportedly in the Works at HBO Max With Original Cast

The ensemble of Friends might be there for you once again. On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that talks are currently underway for an unscripted reunion special, which would theoretically premiere on the upcoming HBO Max streaming service.

The unscripted special would theoretically reunite the show's principal cast, Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), Matt LeBlanc (Joey), Matthew Perry (Chandler), and David Schwimmer (Ross), as well as series creators David Crane and Mara Kauffman.

This special would come as the iconic sitcom series nears the twenty-fifth anniversary of its premiere date, and begins to stream exclusively on HBO Max in 2020.

The report does clarify that "a deal is far from done", as agreements between the parties are currently being ironed out. If everyone did agree to return for the special, coordinating schedules would be the next priority, and there's always a chance that the idea could "fall apart" somewhere along the way.
