An 'unscripted reunion special' is said to be in the works but a long way from being a done deal.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, who were first to report the news, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer, along with the sitcom’s creators, David Crane and Marta Kauffman, are discussing a possible reunion project for HBO Max.
The “unscripted reunion special” is said to be a long way from being a done deal.
A source tells ET that the stars have been throwing around ideas for what be "the best product," and what will work with their schedules.
“The cast of Friends have discussed bringing the show back in some capacity,” the source says. "But in what form is still very much up for discussion."
“The cast are all friends and have been for 25 years, so bringing it back would be easy, however they’re cautious," the source adds. "The show has a cult following and high praise, and the cast and creators don’t want to do the show and it’s fans a disservice. The talks are still early stages, but everyone is on board in some capacity if it makes sense."
The news comes as the loved show continues to celebrate it's 25th anniversary and amid ongoing hopes from fans that the cast will one day reprise their iconic characters.
“I would do it," she said. "The girls would do it, and the boys would do it, I'm sure. Listen, anything can happen."
Clearly, Aniston is just like fans when it comes to loving every minute and wanting more of anything related to a Friends reunion. The actress recently expressed her disappointment to ET about being left out of Cox and Perry’s recent lunch date.
“How come we don't get invited to that?" she reacted.
“Not yet,” she teased, when asked if she had brought up the idea to any of the actors yet. She also said that she thought “any one of them,” would fit the tone of the series.
