Friends is one of those timeless sitcoms that, despite airing its first episode in 1994, has managed to stay semi-popular a full 20 years later. Hell, the entire series is now on Netflix, and most of the show’s main actors have gone on to have prolific careers (not so much including Matt LeBlanc, who has a seven year gap in his resume between 2006 and 2013). Still, the show has remained relevant as ever which, would explain why NBC is planning for a Friends cast reunion:
The Friends will be there for you once again this February. NBC confirmed the entire cast—Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry,Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer—will take part in a new special honoring legendary sitcom director James Burrows…
However, they may not reunite all at once. “Hoping that all six of them will be in the same room at the same time, but I’m not sure we can logistically pull that off,” NBC’s Robert Greenblatt told reporters at the 2016 TCA Winter Press Tour when asked if all six would be together for the special.(via)
Most likely Jennifer Aniston will wind up being the odd one out, considering she already has two projects for 2016 lined up with a third one pending — however we won’t find out until the special airs on Sunday, February 21st.
