It’s a go – HBO Max is currently in negotiations to bring the stars of the popular sitcom “Friends” back for an unscripted reunion special.
The reunion will help kickstart the HBO Max platform which will have the entire “Friends” library available. The streaming service shelled out $425 million for the rights to the series following its long run on Netflix.
Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry will come together on screen together once more for the special which will see each of the cast members net $3-4 million payouts.
Series creators Marta Kauffman and David Crane are expected to have some involvement in the reunion special and are adamant that there are no plans to do a reboot.
Aniston shared a selfie of the cast celebrating the show’s 25th-anniversary last year, a photo that set a Guinness World Record for the fastest to reach one million followers.
