Good news for Friends fans: The original six cast members are in talks to reunite for an unscripted reunion special on HBO Max, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The deal is far from done, but the plan is to have Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer appear alongside creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman to introduce the series on the upcoming subscription platform, which recently paid $425 million for five-year rights to the sitcom departing Netflix at the end of the year. Aniston—whose recent selfie of the cast members broke a world record—seemed to tease such a reunion last month. She told Ellen DeGeneres that there would be no reboot, but "we're working on something," per Deadline. (More Friends stories.)
