HBO Max has announced that the cast of Friends will return after a fifteen year layoff. Friends stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer will all return for the reunion.
“Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together — we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa, and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire Friends library,” HBO’s Kevin Reilly said.
“I became aware of Friends when it was in the very early stages of development and then had the opportunity to work on the series many years later and have delighted in seeing it catch on with viewers generation after generation. It taps into an era when friends – and audiences – gathered together in real time and we think this reunion special will capture that spirit, uniting original and new fans,” he added.
Ben Winston will direct the special and Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman, and David Crane will executive produce. The untitled reboot will reportedly debut sometime after HBO Max’s May launch.
