From debuting her Instagram with a selfie featuring all her fellow Friends costars to teasing a possible Friends reunion project on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jennifer Aniston seems to have the old '90s sitcom on her mind a lot. And now, according to new reports, the Friends reunion rumors might actually come true.
Here, we round up the latest news and gossip about everyone's favorite '90s show, including whether it's making a comeback.
Sources claim the cast will reunite for an HBO Max special.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Friends reunion is edging ever closer to fruition. Per the publication, "Talks are currently underway for an unscripted reunion special that would feature Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer, as well as series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman." If you just passed out, you're not alone.
However, sources also noted that no deals have been completed as yet and that the talks are in the early stages. A reunion show on HBO Max would definitely create a major buzz and fulfill the dreams of so many fans. Could we BE any more excited about the possibility?
Aniston seems to have confirmed the reunion.
During an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Aniston continued to stir the pot of reunion rumors.
When pressed by host Stephen Colbert, Aniston repeatedly said, "Something is happening." She also qualified that cryptic statement with, "But we don't know what that something is." Throw us a bone, Jen!
Aniston teases that the cast is "working on something."
During a guest appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, after surprising Friends fan Charlie Puth, Aniston similarly teased a possible project. "Listen, we would love for there to be something," The Morning Show actress said, referring to herself and her old castmates, "but we don't know what that something is. So, we're just trying. We're working on something."
So that's pretty much confirmed then, right?
"The One Where Everyone's Disappointed."
Whatever's brewing for the cast of Friends, don't expect a traditional reboot of the show. Speaking to Rolling Stone last month, the series's co-creator Marta Kauffman denied a possible revival. "There are several reasons," she said. "One, the show is about a time in your life when your friends are your family. It's not that time anymore. All we'd be doing is putting those six actors back together, but the heart of the show would be gone. Two, I don't know what good it does us. The show is doing just fine, people love it. [A reunion] could only disappoint. 'The One Where Everyone's Disappointed.'"
