The return of the popular 90s TV show called “Friends” has been the talk for years. Fans are calling for the reunion of the stars and they want them to reprise their roles for a new season of the comedy sitcom.  

Hearing the requests for the program to release a new season, some of the show’s original cast members have met up to discuss about it. But every time, the end of those talks are negative which means that they can’t seem to make it happen because some of the cast were reported to be not interested like Matthew Perry. 

In his previous interview with Variety, the actor revealed why he turned down the “Friends” Reunion. He said that he is scared that if they do it again, no one would care. 

“I have this recurring nightmare and I’m not kidding about this,” he narrated. “When I’m asleep, I have this nightmare that we do Friends again and nobody cares. We do a whole series, we come back, and nobody cares about it so if anybody asks me, I’m gonna say no.”

In any case, his interview was done in 2017, and it appears that Perry had changed his mind because “Friends” Reunion is finally in the works and Perry is returning with the rest of the original cast members that include Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the talk about the show is in a very early stage but it should be noted that if there will be no changes in the plans, “Friends” will make a comeback but it will not be offering a full season. Fans will only be getting a “special” and this could be a one-time show that would be released to celebrate the program’s 25th anniversary. 

It was mentioned that the reunion special will hold a world premiere and it will be streamed via HBO Max. For fans in the UK, they are likely to view the show via Netflix. 

“Friends” reunion will not be a reboot but it will be an unscripted show where the original stars will reprise their characters. Show creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman are expected to reunite as well for this project.
