Brace yourselves, "Friends" fans — it's finally happening! After several unfounded rumors it seems the cast of the hit 90s sitcom are finally coming together for a reunion of sorts.
According to Entertainment Weekly, NBC chief Robert Greenblatt is doing his best to get the cast to come together one more time. His hope is that he can organize a tribute to "Friends" director James Burrows. The cast members reuniting will serve as the highlight of the special, slated to air in February. Thus far Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer have agreed to appear on the show. Greenblatt, however, remains unsure of the logistics of the situation.
"I'm hoping all six will be in the same room at the same time, I'm not sure we can logistically pull it off," he said.
Based on previous comments about potential "Friends" reunions, Greenblatt has reason to be worried. In April 2014, Cox, 51, told late night TV host David Letterman a reunion was "just not going to happen." She went on to say that with six cast members with varying schedules it was next to impossible to even gather them for dinner, adding that she's been trying "for 10 years."
Although it has proven challenging to get the entire cast in one room, some of the "Friends" stars have made the time to reunite for fans. Cox, Aniston, 46, and LeBlanc, 48, appeared together on an episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres" show in 2013. They spent much of the show reminiscing about the past, admitting that they hadn't seen one another in nearly eight years at the time.
No further details have been released about the "Friends" reunion or the special. The show is slated to air Feb. 21 on NBC.
