Matthew Perry, Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow
It’s done! A new episode of Friends will air on HBO Max this May. This was reported by employees of the WarnerMedia Corporation, which includes the HBO television network. A special 60-minute episode will be available to subscribers of the new HBO Max streaming service along with all 236 episodes of the series. It will star all the stars of the series: Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), Matt Leblanc (Joey), Matthew Perry (Chandler) and David Schwimmer (Ross).
They also served as executive producers along with Kevin Bright and Marta Kaufman. Ben Winston of The Late Late Show directed the project. According to rumors, each actor was supposed to receive from 3 to 4 million dollars for shooting, however, as Variety managed to find out, this amount would be 2.5 million dollars.
Jennifer Aniston posted a photo on Instagram with Courtney, Lisa, Matt, Matthew and David, which was taken in the 1990s. The rest of the actors on their pages also shared a similar post.
The fact that "Friends" is waiting for a reunion, the media wrote back in November 2019. However, HBO and Warner Bros. then declined to comment. The actors and directors vehemently rejected any possibility of a renewal of the series, which has been recognized as one of the best in the history of American television in its genre and has won six Emmy awards and a Golden Globe award.
