It’s happening – a Friends reunion is on its way

OMG OMG OMG

The cast of Friends

by William Marriott |

For years and years, the WORLD has annoyed the cast of Friends, including Jennifer Aniston, on whether there will ever be anymore episodes of the hit comedy series.

But the cast have always downplayed rumours, adding the six-some are simply too busy to film any more scenes together.

However, with a new year, comes exciting news and we're buzzing to say a Friends reunion has officially been confirmed - 15 years after the show stopped airing.

Yet, there's a but. There's not actually going to be another series as such.

The famous gang, which includes Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Matt Le Blanc and David Schwimmer, are reuniting for an "unscripted special" which will be added to HBO's streaming service when it goes live in May.

In a statement, Kevin Reilly, CCO of 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."

Skin becomes thinner and more sensitive over time meaning that those zit-busting lotions and potions you used as a teenager could actually harm your skin.Teenage products such as Clearasil and Clean & Clear are great for your kids or younger brothers and sisters, but as an adult you should opt for more gentle treatments.
