Entire Friends cast 'working on reunion special' along with the show's creators

Entire Friends cast 'working on reunion special' along with the show's creators

After years of mini reunions on TV and a recent selfie that nearly broke Instagram, the Friends cast may finally get together for a proper television reunion.

This year Aniston, 50, and her co-stars - 55-year-old Cox, LeBlanc, 52, 50-year-old Perry, Kudrow, 56, and 53-year-old Schwimmer have been fuelling the rumours.

Secret crush? They played lovers then marrieds on the TV show Friends.

Sources note that WarnerMedia Entertainment and direct-to-consumer chairman Bob Greenblatt has been the driving force pushing for the Friends reunion, which would pair well with HBO Max's debut and the comedy's new streaming home. "We're working on something", she said.

And it's not hard to imagine why HBO Max execs, who recently paid $425 million for the rights to the show, would want to milk the reboot cash cow.

There were two deaths in Colorado back in 2015, and eight cases reported overall in the state the year before. The bacteria persists because low levels waft into amongst populations of definite rodents, the CDC says.

Max secured the USA rights to all 10 seasons of Friends for US$425 million for its service, which is due to launch in April 2020. Neither has the cast sat down together for a chat show, not have they blessed us with a reunion special.

The cast and creators have been adamant over the years that a reunion or a reboot would never happen. "The show was about that time in life when friends are your family". The actress appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show a couple of weeks ago, where she also met Charlie Puth and was asked about a possible Friends reunion.

She then appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on October 30 and confirmed that "Something is happening", but wouldn't go into detail about a reunion, saying again that she didn't know what the "something" was. "We got it right, and we put a bow on it", added co-creator/executive producer David Crane.

This also comes as Warner Bros.

Hit TV show Friends just celebrated its 25th anniversary and had everyone reminiscing over the good old days. If it does, it would make a big selling point for HBO Max, which is going to need some marquee titles to compete with Netflix, Hulu, and now Disney+.
