Back in November, we shared the news about rumors of a Friends reunion special in the works for HBO Max. At that time, there were mixed messages, with Jennifer Anniston hinting at a reunion on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, but the show’s original producers denying the rumors.
Now AT&T has confirmed that a reunion special is happening, with all six stars of the series on board. Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry have reportedly reached an agreement that will give them each a $3-4 million paycheck for the special. Co-creators and executive producers Marta Kauffman and David Crane are also expected to have a part in the special.
It’s officially official. The cast of @FriendsTV is reuniting for an exclusive, unscripted special on @HBOMax.
Like if you gasped, RT if you cried.
