After lots and LOTS of speculation, it was finally confirmed last week that the Friends cast are reuniting for a one-off show celebrating the iconic sitcom and we don’t think we could be any more excited, tbh.

Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc are all getting back together again for a HBO Max unscripted special airing in May and if Courteney (aka Monica Geller)’s latest comments are anything to go by, she’s just as excited as the rest of us.

She spilled some tea about the reunion during an appearance on Kevin Nealon’s Hiking With Kevin and it sounds LIT.

Courteney said, “So the exciting thing is that we’re all going to get together for the first time, in a room, and actually talk about the show. It’s going to be on HBO Max, and I’m so excited.

“We’re going to have the best time. It’s going to be great. But we really haven’t all done that and actually sat there and talked about and reminisced about this incredible experience that we had. It’s going to be fantastic.”

Courteney and her cast mates all revealed the exciting news on Instagram, sharing a throwback snap that was simply captioned, “It’s happening.”

HBO Max’s chief content officer Kevin Reilly then 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."

And as if the reunion special wasn’t enough, it’s been rumoured that a brand new 12-part series could be given the go ahead.

A source told The Sun, “Officially, the deal has been signed for a one-off. But the hope is that once everyone sees how well it’s received and how much love there is for the show, another series will be agreed and commissioned.

“If this happens, agents will be licking their lips. This will be the kind of small-screen payday the likes of which has never been seen. Including streaming rights, cast fees, spin-offs and merchandising, this could be TV’s inaugural billion-pound contract.”
