IT'S HAPPENING: The 'Friends' Cast Confirm They're Officially Reuniting For A HBO Special
After years of rumours and countless pleas from fans, the cast of Friends - arguably one of the most successful and beloved television shows of all time - are reuniting in a ~professional~ capacity for a new HBO special.
The cast - Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer - all confirmed the reunion on their Instagrams, posting the same photo with the caption 'It's happening...' and tagging their fellow castmates.
Variety is reporting that the special will air on HBO's yet-to-be-available streaming service HBO Max, and will see Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross reunite on the famed set to celebrate 25 years since the show's premiere in 1990.
The publication is also reporting that each actor is being paid at least $US2.5 million for the special, which is actually a little less than the $US3 - 4 million that was initially reported.
HBO Max is set to become available in the US in May, where the special will be exclusively available as well as all 236 episodes of the show. As of right now, there's no confirmation of whether the service will be available in Australia or New Zealand, though Foxtel is being rumoured to seek some of the HBO Max exclusive content.
The final episode of Friends, aptly titled 'The Last One', aired for the first time in 2004.
