Kate Hudson was among the first to react, commenting on the post: “I feel like the whole world just had a collective orga*m.”
Selena Gomez quickly added: “NO ONE TALK TO ME. I’M NOT OK.”
Reese Witherspoon, who had a role in the show, playing Rachel Green’s sister Jill Green, also chimed in: “WHAT????!!! THIS IS THE GREATEST NEWS EVER!!”
Gwyneth Paltrow couldn’t contain herself. “NO F’IN WAYYYYY,” she commented on the news post.
It has been 15 long years since we saw a new episode of Friends, and the reunion is highly anticipated. There were some rumors in the past that this could happen, but scheduling conflicts always got in the way. This time, it is for certain. They are filming an unscripted episode for HBO Max, together with David Crane and Marta Kauffman. The episode will be filmed at the original location, at Warner Bros, where the show was filmed in the past.
Kevin Reilly, chief content officer at HBO Max, said: “Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together — we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa, and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire Friends library. I became aware of Friends when it was in the very early stages of development and then had the opportunity to work on the series many years later and have delighted in seeing it catch on with viewers generation after generation. It taps into an era when friends — and audiences — gathered together in real-time and we think this reunion special will capture that spirit, uniting original and new fans.”
Just like the rest of the world, we can’t wait for May and the opportunity to finally see Joey Tribbiani, Chandler Bing, Rachel Green, Phoebe Buffay, Monica and Ross Geller again.
