All six of the main stars of NBC’s megahit comedy series “Friends,” which is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary, are reportedly in talks for a reunion special.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports in an exclusive published today that talks are under way for an unscripted reunion special that would run on HBO Max. Along with stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer, series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman are said to be involved.
“Sources caution that a deal is far from done and agreements with cast and creatives still need to be hammered out,” THR notes. “When and if deals are completed, the challenge then becomes sorting out everyone’s schedules. Of course, the talks could fizzle and the whole concept could fall apart.”
Both HBO Max and the producer of the original series, Warner Bros. TV, declined comment.
“News of a reunion special arrives as ‘Friends’ has found new audiences at its streaming home on Netflix,” THR notes. “The series is officially leaving the streamer at year’s end and will make its debut on WarnerMedia-backed HBO Max when that $15 monthly subscription platform launches at a date to be determined.”
