NBC‘s Friends stars will appear in an NBC special in February. Actors Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, and Matt LeBlanc will all participate in an NBC tribute next month. This news is sure
to excite fans who still reminisce about the TV show that stole our hearts and showed us that even if you’re on a break, you can still be each other’s lobster.
Turns out, the lobster theory may now be more true than ever. If Friends is your lobster, come February 21 your break will be over. That night, NBC has announced that it will host a two-hour reunion of sorts.
Although this television special will include all six stars, the show isn’t actually about our six favorite New Yorkers. Instead, it’s a tribute to television director James Burrows, who directed several episodes of Friends, along with other shows such as Cheers, Frasier, Will and Grace, and Taxi. Burrows is a celebrated sitcom director and will be honored next month for having directed 1000 episodes of great television.
Although NBC’s special will honor James Burrows and include actors from other sitcoms with which he has been involved, many of us have just one question: will we finally see all of the Friends together in one place, for the first time since they walked out of Monica and Chandler’s empty apartment in 2004? NBC’s Bob Greenblatt, network entertainment chief, isn’t making any promises; he has stated that, while he hopes it can happen, he “shouldn’t go into detail” regarding the plans.
