Fans of the hit sitcom ‘Friends’ have been praying for a reunion for years. After some speculation swirling since last fall, HBO officials have confirmed that the original cast will get back together for a Friends reunion special. This will be a special episode for all those that watched the show religiously during the 90s and thereafter.
The main cast-members of Friends include Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), David Schwimmer (Ross), Courtney Cox (Monica), Matt LeBlanc (Joey), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe) and Mathew Perry (Chandler). Apparently, the cast will receive $2.5 million for the Friends reunion special which will premier in May 2020.
Aniston already hinted at the possibility of a reunion in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres. She mentioned that ‘something could happen’, so this may be what she was talking about. While we have to wait to see what happens in the episode, we might be surprised by what the characters are up to now.
We’re all excited to see how suburban life turned out for Chandler and Monica and their adopted children, Jack and Erika. Also, despite getting back together for good, we want to know if Rachel and Ross ever settled the ‘break’ dispute and if they’re still doing okay. After having her fairy-tale wedding, we hope to see Mike and Phoebe living an eccentric life that reflects their personalities. As for Joey, we hope he’s finally made it as an actor and found a nice girl to settle down with.
There is also speculation about what happened to Ross’s son, and Emma’s half-brother, Ben. He disappeared after season 8, but we hope to see him return in the Reunion Special. Another character we want to know about is Gunter – is he still obsessed with Rachel and working at Central Perk?
