Matthew Perry has recently revealed when the Friends reunion will be happening. We've all been waiting so long for this...
Matthew Pery has got us all excited...
And it's a lot sooner than we all think!Keep scrolling to see the full announcement.
Friends is arguably one of the most successful sitcoms of all time.
via: GettyWe were introduced to the Friends gang back in 1994, when Ross (David Schwimmer), Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Chandler (Matthew Perry), Monica, (Courteney Cox), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), and Joey (Matt LeBlanc) first burst onto our screens.
It was an instant hit...
via: GettyCreated by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, the comedy follows the friends, who live in the same New York apartment block, as they together navigate through the turbulent years of their late twenties.
And we grew to become incredibly attached to these characters...The show truly made us feel like a member of the Friends gang, even when we were conflicted over whether Ross and Rachel really were on a break or not... FYI they totally were on a break.
The final episode aired in September 2004...And we watched through our tears as the gang said their final goodbyes to the apartment we had all grown to know and love for the past decade.
It was an emotional rollercoaster, to say the least.Monica and Chandler were starting a family, Phoebe was newly married, Rachel had a new job in Paris... As with a lot of friendships, the gang had grown apart and were embarking upon their separate journeys.
Oh, and Rachel got off the plane...Fans rejoiced as Ross and Rachel finally put their differences aside and got back together.
But, fifteen years on from Rachel getting off the plane...
via: GettyWe have never found out what happened to the gang. Did Rachel and Ross stay together? Would Monica and Chandler ever get divorced? Did Joey ever make it as a big actor?
Over the years, there have been a few low-key reunions and a lot of false hope...Apart from the occasional reunion on talk-shows, fans have had their fair share of disappointments when it comes to waiting for a Friends reunion.
A trailer for a Friends movie went viral last year, giving superfans false hope that the sitcom was hitting the box office...But it wasn't to be. The trailer was quickly confirmed to be fake and, again, our dreams were shattered.
And even the cast have confirmed in the past that a reunion is incredibly unlikely...
via: IMDBMatt Le Blanc left fans heartbroken last year as he rejected calls for the show to return, saying the sitcom simply "wouldn’t be the same" in an interview with the Mail Online. He added, "People want to know what happened to them. But it was about a finite period in a person’s life after college, before you settle down and start a family."
And it isn't just the cast who have their doubts...
via: GettyThe show’s co-creator Marta Kauffman, says she constantly gets "nagged" by fans to bring the sitcom back. "Watch the old ones – there is no way we could win that. And there’s no way it would be satisfying and it’ll never happen. We’ll never do it," she said in an interview with Deadline.
So, yeah... Things haven't been looking too great on the reunion front...
via: IMDBMany worry that, because Friends was about a group of people in their twenties and thirties, it just wouldn't work following the gang through their forties and fifties.
Well, the news we were all waiting for arrived in February...
Many fans hoped that the reunion would be scripted...
via: GettyBut sadly, the reunion will simply be a sit-down with the entire cast and crew to just catch up and reminisce on the good times. It still sounds brilliant, though!
Fans were asking a lot of questions...
via: IMDBAnd thankfully for them (and us), Courteney Cox has revealed exactly what to expect.
Speaking with Kevin Nealon on Hiking with Kevin, Courteney explained what the show would involve...
via: IMDBShe said, "So the exciting thing is that we're all going to get together for the first time, in a room, and actually talk about the show, and it's going to be on HBO Max, and I'm so excited."
This will be a first time thing...
via: Getty Images"We're going to have the best time. It's going to be great. We really haven't all done that and actually sat there and talked about and reminisced about this incredible experience that we had. It's gonna be fantastic," she went on to explain.
The reunion was originally scheduled to air in May on HBO Max...Along with the channel releasing all 10 seasons of the sitcom for viewers to watch on-demand.
But bad news wasn't far around the corner...Due to the global pandemic, the Friends reunion was called off "indefinitely," just a week before filming was set to take place.
Naturally, fans were crushed by the news...
As if this pandemic couldn't get any worse?!
