It’s happening you guys! Our favorite friends since 1994 are making a comeback. F.R.I.E.N.D.S (Casually called Friends) was undoubtedly one of the best and most popular TV shows of all time. The show started airing on 22 September 1994 and its finale telecasted on 6 May 2004 on NBC. Since then of course the show was on a BREAK!! (Ross from friends would know) And the stars of show have not yet made a comeback. However all the original lead stars will be back. I KNOW!! (Monica would). Joey (Matt leBlanc) confused us with a wrong photo but phoebe, Rachel, Monica and other members of friends cast made us believe that the reunion is actually happening.
FINALLY A REUINON!!
Recently, as an update on the streaming wars, it was announced that F.R.I.E.N.D.S which was available on Netflix will now be leaving Netflix and join a new streaming service i.e. HBO Max. Long time fans of the show were heartbroken, but now it seems that they will fall in love with HBO Max now as they were constantly bugging the network and the stars of the show to make a comeback. As a result of this, the stars of show Friends Joey (Matt LeBlanc), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), Ross (David Schwimmer), , Monica (Courtney Cox), Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) and Chandler (Mathew Perry) posted a photo of the cast of friends on their Social and in the caption, HBO Max was tagged along with all the other stars.
Although they did not specially say that there is going to be reunion special episode but it was quite obvious as everyone was asking for it for a million years and the caption “It’s Happening” was more than enough to let the fans know of the reunion. The entire friends cast posted the same pic as follows:
Apart from our favorite friend Joey who obviously goofed up and posted a pic of the cast of M*A*S*H (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) , an American war comedy-drama series that aired on CBS from 1972 to 1983. However, the caption under the photo was correct.
Since the show ended, the stars of the show have been on different paths. It must be noted that the upcoming Reunion will not be the only time we will be taken back to the friends universe, as after the huge success of the sit-com (52.5 million American viewers of the finale “The last one”) there was a spin-off announced that follows the life of Joey (Matt LeBlanc) with the same name i.e. Joey (2004-2006). The show was not well received and was resultantly cancelled after its second outing.
