For those of us who grew up in the 90s, Friends was the most epic depiction of real life 20-somethings out there. The dating! The cheating! The fact that everything resolved so neatly in the end!
We all know what’s happened to the cast since then—Jennifer Aniston has continued to play a variation of Rachel for much of her career, Courtney Cox has gotten a lot of injectable work, and Lisa Kudrow is still hilarious. But now, we’ll get to watch them on the small screen once again; the whole #squad is getting back together for a two-hour reunion show, slated for February 21 on NBC.
The show will pay tribute to director James Burrows, who helmed 15 episodes of the series, including “The One Where Ross and Rachel Take a Break,” “The One with the Birth,” and the pilot episode, “The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate.”
The reunion was announced at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Pasadena on Wednesday by NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt. But Greenblatt was cautious in his optimism: “I’m hoping that all six of them will be there in the same room at the same time,” he said, but added that he didn’t know if it would be possible logistically.
