This may not be the Friends reunion you were hoping for…
It has been confirmed! Sort of.
The Friends reunion has been set, but it’s not going to be a new episode/movie, or a revival, or a reboot. Planned to be unscripted, the cast will reunite to discuss their relationships and the show itself, which ran from 1994-2004.
The special will be available to subscribers of HBO Max, a new streaming service that will feature the classic sitcom in May.
I find the resurgence of Friends fascinating. It was given a second life on Netflix, and has since built a new fan base of millennial super fans. I think the show holds up, simply because of how easy it is to relate and connect with the characters. Plus, much like Seinfeld, it was full of quippy one-liners and a mountain of memorable moments.
Get your snacks ready and rehearse your favorite lines, because it should be a fun trip down memory lane!
