The entire cast of Friends is to reunite for a one-off special on the HBO Max streaming service, more than 15 years since the show ended.

The unscripted episode will be launched in May. A date is yet to be announced.

Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer will all appear.

Matthew Perry posted on Instagram: “It’s happening.”

The actor posted the text along with a photo of the cast from the 1990s. The rest of the cast then started sharing the same post.

Friends aired from 1994 until 2004. The final show was watched by 52.5 million viewers in the US, making it the most watched TV episode of the 2000s.

The show has since picked up legions of younger fans through Netflix.

Rumors of a reunion intensified after Jennifer Aniston posted a photo of the cast together on Instagram in October.

HBO Max has now secured rights to the show’s back catalogue for $425 million.

Kevin Reilly, chief content officer for HBO Max said the reunion special will capture the spirit of a time when “friends – and audiences – gathered together in real time”.

The cast will be involved in producing the episode.

According to Variety, each actor is expected to receive $2.5 million for taking part in the special, which will be available when HBO Max – a new subscription streaming service – launches.


Actor Matthew Perry will not attend Friends reunion show due to rehearsals for his West End play.

His spokeswoman said “Matthew may tape something” for the tribute to Friends creator James Burrows.

In other words, this is not the reunion people have been hoping for,” Lisa Kasteler told Us Weekly.

The Friends reunion is set to be aired on NBC on February 21.

Friends ended in 2004 after 10 series. As well as Friends, James Burrows worked behind the camera on sitcoms including Cheers and Frasier.

Matthew Perry has written and will star in the play The End of Longing… which is set to run in London’s West End from February 2 until May 14. It will be directed by Lindsay Posner.

The dark comedy follows four disparate people approaching middle age, who meet in a bar one night.

He appeared somewhat bedraggled as he walked though the sprawling airport with a scruffy shirt covering his black T-shirt, a green bag flung over his shoulder and a baseball cap on his head.

Matthew Perry also wore a rare pair of studious glasses and a thick coat despite the sunny California weather outside.

After winning the hearts of millions of Friends viewers as Chandler Bing in the 1990s, Matthew Perry was last seen in Go On, a comedy drama that aired in the US on NBC last year but was canceled after one season.
