The one with the reunion

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed this week that all original cast members and show creators are working on a deal.

Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer along with series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman are currently in talks with HBO about an, 'unscripted reunion special.'

The special will air on HBO Max, the upcoming subscription service launching in May 2020.

The reunion rumour mill has been turning for a while now.

In August last year Jennifer Aniston told InStyle, "It really was the greatest job I ever had."

"I don’t know what it would look like today, but you never know. So many shows are being successfully rebooted."

However, co-creator Marta Kauffman told Rolling Stone in March this year that, 'The show is about a time in your life when your friends are your family. It's not that time anymore.'

In addition, Matt LeBlanc has continuously denied plans to revisit the character of  Joey over the years.

Back in 2018 he told an Australian radio show, "I don’t think anyone wants to see Joey at his colonoscopy. I think it’s better for people to just leave it."

But lucky for us it seems like LeBlanc and Kauffman have had a change of heart!

While sources told The Hollywood Reporter that a deal is, 'far from done', the show will return.
