“There is interest all around and yet we can’t get the interests all alighted to push the button on it,” HBO Max’s Chief Creative Officer Kevin Reilly said about the reunion special earlier this year. “Today it’s just maybe.”
It's not just the cast who are interested in the reunion special; the show clearly still has a massive fan base. When Jennifer Aniston posted her first-ever Instagram photo - a selfie of herself with Friends co-stars Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer - she literally broke Instagram. She also set a new Guinness World Record for the fastest time to reach one million followers.
“I would love for there to be something, but we don’t know what that something is,” Jen revealed while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last year. “So we’re just trying. We’re working on something.”
For now, we have everything crossed in the hope that a compromise can be reached.
