A Friends Reunion Is Finally Happening

Since this story's publication, Matthew Perry has announced he won't be able to participate in person.

They're not on a break anymore. Twelve years after the show's finale, the Friends cast will finally reunite on NBC this February. Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer will all take part in a new special honoring director James Burrows on Sunday, Feb. 21, NBC head Bob Greeblatt confirmed at the Television Critics Association Press Tour on Wednesday according to E News.

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). Actors from others shows he's directed, including Cheers, Mike & Molly and The Bob Newhart Show are also expected to appear in the special.

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.
