Christmas has come early for Friends fans! After some speculation, HBO Max has confirmed that the original cast of the widely beloved '90s show will reunite for a special episode. We have known the series was leaving Netflix for a while, and though the collective panicking that has ensued failed to bring it back, it seems this nostalgia-inducing moment (along with the return of Gossip Girl) just may make trying out another streaming service worth it.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the six main cast members—Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow and Matthew Perry—are in talks with the show's creators, David Crane and Marta Kauffman. They have yet to reach a deal, but the news has already thrilled those who followed the group's adventures the first time around. If a reunion episode happens, it might just go more viral than when Aniston celebrated joining Instagram via a selfie with the cast that proved they're all still, well, friends.
Aniston had already hinted at the possibility of a reunion. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres last year, she mentioned "something could happen," so the new insight may just be what she was referring to. While no one yet knows exactly what this will entail, it's certain that the world will be waiting patiently for the potential arrival of this nostalgic gift.
