On 15th October 2019, Jennifer Aniston made her debut on Instagram. She posted this pic with the caption: “And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM“. And the internet went crazy for the FRIENDS reunion.
From where did all these Reunion whispers start?
Recently on The Ellen Show, when asked about the FRIENDS, she said that they’re planning something but she never revealed what that is really going to be. So people speculated that it could be a FRIEND’s reboot, a reunion special or a special episode about friends.
Jennifer Aniston is currently doing a TV show called “The Morning Show” with her on-screen FRIENDS’ sister Reese Witherspoon. She played the character of Jill Green (the spoiled sister). The show is about news anchors and their lives. It is the first TV series Jennifer is working after our favorite TV show Friends ended.
During the promotion of “The Morning Show,” the Interviewer asked Jennifer about the status FRIENDS reunion. Needless to say, she tried to dodge the bullet. She said that they are definitely working on something but it may not be what everyone is expecting. She also said the cast doesn’t have much of the idea of it.
After all the recent rumors, it has been confirmed that there isn’t going to be a reboot or an episode. Instead, it is going to be an unscripted talk show. It means that the whole cast is going to be reunited in a set that may or may not resemble the show’s earlier set (The unforgettable brown couch). There is going to be some talk about their life, what they did after friends and how is everything going just like a talk show.
Who is making this FRIENDS Reunion possible?
If you’re wondering who is making this possible after all these years, it is WarnerMedia’s streaming service. It is now officially renamed as HBO Max. Recently there was a war between Netflix and Warner Brother for the broadcasting rights of FRIENDS and Warner brothers won that.
So it is sad news for all the Netflix users because FRIENDS is officially leaving Netflix at the year-end of 2019.
All the Seasons of FRIENDS will be available on HBO Max from Jan 2020. And to make everyone more aware of that, Warner Bros is planning this big reunion special.
People are waiting for Friends reunion for a long time and these media giants know it. Warner Bros is using this smart way to make people sign up or to get the paid subscription to their latest streaming service, HBO Max. In our opinion, its a win-win for everybody. We predict that it can happen in early 2020, Maybe even in Jan or Feb. Let’s hope!
