After years wishing for a comeback of the iconic ‘90s show that amassed an army of loyal watchers and fans across the globe, we are thrilled to announce that Rachel, Monica, Joey, Chandler and Ross are coming back together for one last hurrah.
Yes, we know these rumours have been circulating for the so long that it’s hard to actually believe it, but since the announcement came from no one other than Jennifer Aniston herself via Instagram we know its for real. And of course, we have rounded up all the details to answer all the burning questions your have...
1 | This is not a reboot
This is not a reboot meaning that sadly, we won’t be having more episodes to re-watch for the next decade. It seems that this will be an unscripted special show where the cast will get together to answer questions and reminisce about what was one of the most influential TV shows of the 90's.
2 | All five of the main cast members will be participating
Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courtney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), David Schwimmer (Ross), Mathew Perry (Chandler) and Matt LeBlanc (Joey) will be all reuniting for this special. According to Variety, each cast member is earning a minimum of $2.5million (Dhs9.1 million) for the special.
Even though we don’t get a new season of the show, at least we’re getting a complete reunion of all our faves.
3 | They’re going back home
The cast will be meeting in the place that is like their second home (and ours as well to be honest): the original Friends Sound-Stage 24 at the Warner Bros. Studio in Burbank.
4| Here’s where you’ll be able to watch it
The special will be aired on HBO’s new streaming platform HBO Max which is set to launch anytime this May 2020.
HBO Max will also be streaming every single episode of the show on their platform once it’s launched.
So, you better get your subscription ready ahead of time…you won’t want to miss this.
5| As for the date…
There’s still not an official release date. However, since, HBO Max is launching in May 2020, we predict that it will be soon after the platform’s launch.
UPDATE: May 2020 will be the official release date, according to a statement released by HBO Max.
This is all we know so far. However, we’ll keep you posted of anything that happens regarding this special reunion. Keep posted!
