It is likely to be an hour-long, unscripted reunion special with the whole star cast as per a Wall Street Journal report.

HBO Max snatched Friends from Netflix, paying more than $425 million in 2019 to secure exclusive rights to the series.

The show will air on HBO Max, according to the streaming service. The special coincides with the show's 25th anniversary as well as its move to the new streaming platform. It will be taped in Stage 24 of the infamous Warner Bros lot in Burbank, where Friends filmed its entire run.

All other Friends cast members - Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry - posted a throwback Rolling Stone magazine cover snap on their Instagram accounts to confirm the one-off reunion is a go.

"F.R.I.E.N.D.S" fans rejoice! The much speculated "Friends" TV show reunion is finally happening on HBO Max. It's the sound of the internet exploding - as it just became official that the cast of Friends is getting back together.

Minnesota took its first lead midway through the third as a Spurgeon backhand tipped in off Oiler defender Adam Larsson's stick. The plan is to practice Saturday and put tonight's game behind them. "That's pretty much the story of the game".

Jennifer Aniston shared a photo of her Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt Le Blanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer in a vehicle together, writing alongside it: "It's happening".

Soon-to-be streamer HBO Max sent out a press release Friday, Feb. 21 announcing that the entire cast of Friends will definitely be reuniting for an unscripted special that will air exclusively on HBO Max.

Will the original cast members return for a little miniseries, or is this a one and done situation? That audience hasn't died down with People writing that Friends was the second most popular show on Netflix. He will also be the executive producer along with the executive producers of the show itself - Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman and David Crane.

When rumors of the reunion first surfaced in November, the Guardian's Stuart Heritage wrote: "Another shot, even for a truckload of cash, would only further diminish what Friends once was".

"Friends" debuted in 1994 and bowed in 2004, after 10 seasons on NBC.
