To honour ‘Friends’ director James Burrows, ALL SIX cast members will be reuniting for a two hour special to air on February 21!

Matthew Perry, Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Courteny Cox, Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow are reuniting to honour James Burrows who directed 15 episodes of the show. 

They said it would never happen I think we all remember the shows creator Marta Kaufman crushing our dreams and saying, “There will never ever, it’s not going to happen. They have to let it go.” But alas, here it is and our eyes are watering just a little (ok, well a lot.)

Making the announcement on Wednesday was Bob Greenblatt, NBC’s chair of entertainment, who said, “I’m hoping all six of them will be all in the same room at the same time, but I’m not sure if we can logistically pull that off.”

Think you’ve heard James’ name before? You probably have, he directed many episodes of ‘Will & Grace’ and also worked on shows like ‘Cheers’, ‘Frasier’, and ‘Mike & Molly’ to name a few.

No word yet on how us Aussies can watch the special, but it’ll be produced by Sean Hayes who played Jack on ‘Will & Grace’ and will air on NBC on February 21. 

What will the special entail, we have absolutely no idea. But here are some of our guesses....

Maybe there will be an homage to Chandler and Monica who would be celebrating their 15-year anniversary this year. 


Last year was a big year for the Friends family, we found out there was an episode where Rachel was NOT played by Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Aniston got married to long-time partner Justin Theroux and we discovered a scene that was originally cut from the show because it was ‘too offensive’

So with the upcoming special looming make sure you brush up on your Friends knowledge, watch repeats on Netflix and sing “I’ll be there for you at the top of your lungs! Please and thankyou! 

The fact that the Friends cast ‘will be there for you’ once again has made our year. All fourteen days of it!
