After more than 15 years of hankering for a reunion, fans of “Friends” are finally having their day. On Friday, Feb. 21, Warner Media confirmed that the original “Friends” cast would officially reunite this spring for a one-off reunion special. Here are five facts about the “Friends” reunion you need to know:

Will it feature all members of the gang?

The “Friends” spring reunion special will feature all the six original cast members of the hit sitcom, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer. On Friday, HBO Max chief content officer confirmed this on Instagram, saying, “Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together—we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa, and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire ‘Friends’ library.”

Who will direct?

The “Friends” reunion special will be executive produced by original “Friends” executive producers Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman, and David Crane, with renowned director Ben Winston at the helm. Cast members Aniston, Cox, Kudrow, Perry, LeBlanc, and Schwimmer will also executive produce the special.

How much are the original cast members going to get paid for it?

According to reports, the cast members will earn far more than their former per-episode fee for the reunion special. That means each of them will get between $2.5 million-$3 million, more than double of what they were paid per episode in the 10th and last season of “Friends” in 2004.

What comes after this reunion?

New reports claim that the highly anticipated reunion could pave the way for a series reboot worth $1 billion. “Officially, the deal has been signed for a one-off,” said a source. “But the hope is that once everyone sees how well it’s received and how much love there is for the show, another series will be agreed and commissioned,” the source added.

When will it be released?

The unscripted “Friends” reunion special will be available on HBO Max when the service debuts on May 20. All the 236 episodes of the Emmy-winning series will also be available to HBO Max subscribers on the same date.
