Cast of 'Friends' Not Reuniting for New NBC Special
Published Jan 13, 2016It might be time to ask your barber for "The Rachel" again, because the cast of Friends is gearing up for a reunion on NBC.
Before you start singing "Smelly Cat" from the rooftops, however, you should note that the cast will be reuniting for a special about legendary sitcom director James Burrows.
Along with 15 episodes of Friends, Burrows directed episodes of shows like Taxi, Cheers and Frasier as well as more modern shows like The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly.
Burrows recently directed his 1,000th episode of television, so he's being celebrated with a two-hour special on NBC.
As TVLine reports, Friends cast members Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry will all be on hand to celebrate Burrows' life and work.
Here's hoping the in-person reunion sparks some flames that eventually turn into a Netflix reboot.
The James Burrows special is set to air on Sunday, February 21.
UPDATE (01/14, 2:30 PM): As Deadline reports, the rumours of a full-fledged Friends reunion have turned out to be false. At the very least, Matthew Perry will not be in attendance for the taping of the special, while the other performers have yet to confirm or deny their involvement.
