Come April, the cast of Friends will be reuniting for an unscripted special on HBO Max.
We were on a break! Guess, it’s time to get back together, isn’t it? Got the reference? Oh, well, any F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan would know what I’m talking about. Yes, we are talking about the same show called Friends which aired on HBO Max
After all, there are only a few sitcoms that people never forget about. Friends has forever been my favourite 90s sitcom that literally took the world by storm. Hell, it still leaves every single viewer smitten by its perfect portrayal of love, friendship, family, humour, tragedy, and basically life.
A Friends Reunion in the making, is it?
Now, it is no secret that the fandom is desperate to see a reunion of the cast of Friends. In fact, every now and then, there would be a new viral fan made movie trailer of the show. Of course, the cast would then clarify that they have no plans to make a sequel of any sorts. Heartbreaking, right?
Jennifer Aniston spoke about the possibility of a reunion to Ellen Degeneres on her show last year, “We would love for there to be something, but we don’t know what that something is. So we’re just trying. We’re working on something.”
Anyway, there’s really incredible news for you guys. HBO Max has been rumoured to release a special unscripted reunion episode with the cast of Friends. Yep, you heard it right.
Phoebe, Monika, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, and Joey will be seen together on the screen once again. The Special episode would be the perfect launch episode for the streaming service HBO Max in association with WarnerMedia. Excited, are we?
The special six will be paid somewhere around a whopping $2.5 million for the reunion special.
Let me be happy dreaming of a full-fledged movie
So, it is established that there won’t be any ruining of the already beautifully done end of Friends by releasing a movie. What if there really was a movie some 26 years after the end of the sitcom? Wouldn’t it be a dream come true for the millions of fans all across the globe?
The question is what would the reboot revolve around?
I HAVE A THEORY!
Cut to 26 years later, the movie would be all about changes, transformations, and more. It would be set somewhere in Italy where Joey is geared up to marry the love of his life in his ancestral home. Without the background laughing score, it would be a challenge to make the movie just as funny; they can pull it off though. Back to the plot, so the marriage of Joey will be a massive turning point in his life.
He will now be more than willing to share his food, can you believe that! The friends will reunite and we’ll get to know what exactly Chandler does for a living. No kidding. Moving on, it will be overwhelming to see how Monica is doing as a mother. We will also be entering a sweet territory of love with Phoebe and Mike and Rachel and Ross.
The wedding celebration, however, would make up for the perfect opportunity for comedy, tragedy, and satire to take place, all at once.
This movie could have been something special.
Alas, the cast and the crew are not in favour of a reboot. But a little imagination never hurt anybody, now did it?
Wake me up when March Ends
All’s well. The unscripted reunion is still on the table. Brace yourself for over an hour-long reunion special on HBO Max in April. Of course, there won’t be a movie, but seeing them together once again would be just as fantastic. I would trade anything for that to happen. Would you?
