The six protagonists of Friends and the creators of the hit series would be in conversation with HBO Max to make a reunion special. It would not be about new episodes, but what the project involves is not yet known.
According to The Hollywood Reporter , nothing has been signed yet and the details, including the schedules of the busy actors, still have to be worked out.
Sources say that Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry are all willing to participate in the reunion. This is striking, since all six key players since the end of 2004 have stated that they have no desire to breathe new life into the series.
However, Aniston, who played the role of Rachel in the series, recently said he was "busy with something". "But we don't know what that 'something' is. So we just try something out."
Recently, the actress also posted a photo on her Instagram account showing her with her five former colleagues.
Sitcom is moving from Netflix to HBO Max
The special would be broadcast on the new HBO Max streaming service, which will start next spring and will also receive the broadcasting rights for Friends. With this, the Netflix sitcom will be moved to the service of the HBO channel, which will start early next year.
Friends, which is about six friends who live in New York, was made between 1994 and 2004 and has been a ratings hit in all those years. Many famous stars played a guest role in the sitcom, including Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Julia Roberts.
