A FRIENDS reunion involving all six original cast members is back on the cards, according to reports in the US.
The show’s stars — Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry — have not appeared together on screen since the hit comedy ended its run in 2004.
But now talks are in the works for all six to feature in a show on new streaming site HBO Max, according to Variety and The Hollywood Reporter.
Before you get too excited, though, the new show is being billed as a ‘special’, so a one-off, not a whole new season.
‘Talks are currently underway for an unscripted reunion special,’ an insider told The Hollywood Reporter.
But there is the usual caveat that the deal is ‘far from done and agreements with cast and creatives still need to be hammered out’.
Things have looked promising, nevertheless, ever since Jen dropped some pretty heavy hints in conversation with US talkshow host Ellen DeGeneres.
She told Ellen, they were ‘working on something’, adding: ‘We would love for there to be something, but we don’t know what that something is. So we’re just trying.’
The special, if it comes off, should prove popular not only with original audiences but also with youngsters who’ve been lapping it up, giving the show a new lease of life and making it the second most-watched of 2018.
