A Friends reunion special with original cast is finalising, report says


A Friends "Reunion" special episode is allegedly almost agreed, according to Huffington Post.

An unscripted retrospective with the original cast is "finalizing agreements" and if all agreed will stream on HBO Max in the spring, the Wall Street Journal also reported.

If pulled off, this will drive millions of users to HBO Max, the upcoming American subscription streaming service from Warner Media.

Referencing a source with alleged knowledge of the talks, the Journal wrote that Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer all rejected an offer of $1 million each for the special.

But they have reportedly agreed a counter-offer somewhere in-between $2.25 and $2.5 million – however, reports elsewhere say it could actually be upwards of $3 and $4 million.


The hourlong program will allegedly be used as a vehicle to promote Friends reruns, which will be available on HBO Max when it eventually launches in May of 2020.

Rumours also became stronger this week when Matthew Perry tweeted that "Big news is coming."

Friends originally ended back in 2004 and after plenty of runs of the reruns across various TV networks and streaming platforms, fans couldn't be more eager for a reunion of any shape or size.

Co-creators/executive producers Marta Kauffman and David Crane are also expected to have some involvement in the special.
