They'll be there for you! This February on NBC!
It's been 12 years since the last episode of Friends aired on Television and approximately 12 days since we sang "Smelly Cat" and "First Time I Met Chandler"! Since the day Friends ended, several fans of the show have been demanding a reunion. In late 2014, there was a rumour that the Friends cast would reunite on Thanksgiving, and a photograph of Central Perk's famous orange couch was circulated with "Thanksgiving 2014" written below it. The fans all over the world rejoiced but their joy was short-lived when NBC and the cast members denied the rumors.
But now, the Friends Cast is all set to reunite to honor former Director of the show, James Burrows.
Check out the details below!
But there's a catch: Although NBC hopes the stars will appear together, there's a chance it won't be possible to get everyone in the same room. "I'm not sure we can logistically pull that off," said Greenblatt.
Burrows has been directing sitcoms for 40 years, directed 15 episodes of Friends (along with nearly 200 episodes of Will & Grace).
Fans of the uber-popular 1990s sitcom have been lobbying for a reunion for years. The show surged again in popularity last year when it became available to stream on Netflix.
Actors from others shows he's directed, including Cheers, Mike & Molly and The Bob Newhart Show are also expected to appear in the special.
During the panel session, AccessHollywood.com asked Greenblatt if the "Friends" cast would appear together, but it appears some details still are being worked out.
