The Friends reunion is really happening!
Matt Le Blanc, who played Joey Tribbiani in the classic sitcom, has all but confirmed on Twitter that, yes, all six cast members from the best show on earth will come together for a two-hour TV special next month.
Retweeting a news story about the rumoured reunion, he wrote: “Should be a good time!” OMG.
As reported on Wednesday, Matt and co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry will all be part of a televised celebration of TV director James Burrows’ career.
Burrows helmed numerous episodes of the iconic US sitcom—which aired between 1994 and 2004—as well as episodes of Cheers, Frasier, Taxi, Will & Grace, The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly.
The two-hour tribute show, airing on NBC in the US, will salute Burrows as he celebrates filming his 1,000th TV episode.
As well as the Friends cast, the casts of some of those other famous sitcoms, including Taxi and Will & Grace, will be reunited also.
Last year, Courteney Cox ruled out a Friends movie or follow-up TV show, admitting it’s hard enough getting the cast together for dinner.
The Monica Geller actress said: “We’ve not really had a Friends reunion. We’ve gotten about 80 percent there but there’s always one person that flakes at the end.”
“I’m not going to name names,” she added when asked if it’s David Schwimmer, her on-screen brother Ross. “But it may not be Schwimmer.”
NBC’s tribute to James Burrows airs in the US on Sunday 21 February
