Friends is bigger than ever. After completing 25 years, Friends will be finally back for the fans. Thanks to the arrival of Friends series on streaming platforms such as Netflix or HBO, the Friends series has revived among fans and has begun to reach a new audience. Since the end of the series in 2004, there have been many rumors of a return, a meeting, a revival, a movie. But it never happened, except a few years ago when the entire cast met except Matthew Perry to honor James Burrows, one of the most iconic sitcom directors.
The details of this reunion are not yet transcended, but it has confirmed the ongoing talks between the makers and the cast. Till then all we can hope is this happens and our favorite characters will come around again after 15 years to relive those fun moments.
This is what you should know about the Friends reunion –
The cast of the Friends Reunion
As of now, the main cast includes the lead actors viz Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer. However, there is no mention of other supporting actors James Michael Tyler (Gunther) and Maggie Wheeler (Janice). But wouldn’t it be fun to watch all of them together?
The plot of the Friends Reunion
You must be thinking is it a movie or a season altogether? Imagine a continuation of the hit TV series of the decade. Or maybe a movie which finally tells what Joey is up to and how Mondler is doing with the twins? I hate to break to you all that it is neither a movie nor a spin-off TV series but an unscripted show. It may be like a talk show with the core cast and makers discussing BTS and their epic journey of the phenomenal show. Whatever it is we all know it will be absolute fun watching these people without a question.
Where to watch the most awaited Reunion of Friends show?
Currently, the millennial’s favorite show with all of its 10 seasons are streaming on Netflix. Friends is the most-watched and popular TV show on Netflix. But Friends will be leaving Netflix soon starting 2020 and will be available on HBO max. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Warner Bros supported HBO max paid millions ($425 million) to outbid Netflix and got the streaming rights for 5 years. The HR also mentioned that this reunion will be available on HBO Max. So probably this reunion is to back up the HBO Max’s debut and celebrate the new streaming home for Friends.
All these are just talks and nothing concrete is in works yet. As said by the Hollywood Reporter “the whole concept could fall apart”. So talking about the premiere if at all this happens it will be telecasted on HBO Max. HBO Max will be launched in May 2020 so maybe around that time, there will be at least some sort of confirmation on this reunion. Recently fans were blown when Jennifer Anniston posted her first picture on Instagram. It was her with the other five of the Friends cast. Also when asked upon a talk show by Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Anniston said We would love for there to be something, but we don’t know what that something is. So we’re just trying. We’re working on something.” So all we know is that the cast is on board if something is to happen. For starters that’s some great news till then we can watch the Friends series online on Netflix. Let us know in the comments below your thoughts on this most awaited reunion.
