In the last few months, there have been numerous rumours about a possible reunion of the “Friends” cast and a possible new production.
It all started in the last fall when Jennifer Anniston spoke about this reunion, but she didn’t say much back then. All she said was that the cast agreed on a possible reunion, but the producers give them a really rough time.
After all this time of waiting, “Friends” fans have received the best gift ever: a special episode will be released soon. This episode will be released on HBO Max, on May 2020.
“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 of HBO Max, in a news release.
The actors Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green), David Schwimmer (Ross Geller), Courteney Cox (Monica Geller), Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing) și Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay) were the one who decided to break the good news to their fans. They all have posted a picture of them together, with the description: “It’s happening”.
Who can wish for more than that? “Friends” was a big part of their life and our life as well. Even though the last episode of the series has been on air on May 6, 2004, people are still going crazy over it in the present. What fans need to keep in mind is that this reunion is just for a special episode, not the premiere of a reboot or sequel series.
So yes, fans will receive just one special episode. But after all this time. this is better than nothing at all, isn’t it?
