‘Friends’ Reunion Special Officially Heading To HBO Max

Published: Friday 21st Feb 2020 by Sam

Few shows, if any, can rival the enduring popularity of ‘Friends.’

And now, some 15 years after the sitcom’s final episode, it’s been officially announced that all of the official cast will be reuniting for a special on HBO Max. 

Full story below…

Moments ago, it was revealed that Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer will return to the original ‘Friends’ soundstage on the Warner Bros lot to celebrate the iconic show.

Word is that the much-loved ensemble will each bag at least $2.5 million for participating in the unscripted special.

It serves as a huge coup for HBO, who’ll be launching their streaming service in May with the special as well as all 236 episodes of the comedy. As widely reported, their streaming rights for the will be exclusive; having snatched back ‘Friends’ from Netflix. A platform it proved hugely popular on.

Adding to the excitement were members of the cast, who took to social media to trumpet the news:

In a formal statement, Kevin Reilly, chief content officer at HBO Max said:

“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. I became aware of ‘Friends’ when it was in the very early stages of development and then had the opportunity to work on the series many years later and have delighted in seeing it catch on with viewers generation after generation. It taps into an era when friends – and audiences – gathered together in real time and we think this reunion special will capture that spirit, uniting original and new fans.”

We’re elated! Are you?

        @Fancy I’m not worried about your “taste”. I am a black, engaged hetero male who only give real adult women my time. And from the way you’re talking, you have some growing up to do. But go off tho.

    Never got into this show, it is NOT funny at all to me.
    Yet there are other shows from the same era who remain so underrated and that were much smarter in their storylines, layers and construction over the years.

    But I’m happy for the fans.
    Now don’t get too excited as it will be some sort of sit down interview or something like that. I can’t believe they are being paid this much for something so… basic.
