For years after Friends concluded back in 2004, fans pleaded for some sort of reunion to bring the six main cast members—Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, and Matthew Perry—back on one stage again. Finally, the people got what they wanted in 2021, when Friends: The Reunion debuted on HBO Max.
Instead of a scripted special that would bring back the six main characters for another episode, Friends: The Reunion was more of a sit-down with the actors, where they reminisced on their favorite parts of starring on the sitcom and revealed some juicy behind-the-scenes secrets. (Who knew Aniston and Schwimmer really did have feelings for each other in the ’90s?)
Considering the reunion was so well received and was a huge hit for HBO Max, it likely won’t take long for talks of a second special to come up. But what are the chances it’ll happen again?
Will another Friends reunion happen?
According to Courteney Cox, we shouldn’t get our hopes up. As reported by CinemaBlend, the actress stopped by the UK talk show Lorraine to promote her new movie Scream, where she was asked about the potential for another Friends reunion. Her answer, unfortunately, was disappointing.
"Oh, I didn’t even think about that," she said. "No one asks anymore. I think they got their fill. I mean, we can’t do another one, we’ll be too old."
Though Cox’s answer here isn’t encouraging, things can always change, especially when nostalgic '90s TV shows are concerned.
In the meantime, you can stream all 10 seasons of Friends on HBO Max.
