It’s Happening- “Friends” Returns to NBC


We can all start chanting “I’ll be there for you” as a “Friends” reunion is in the works to be aired in February.

All six original cast members have agreed to take part in the show -Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry, reports TV Line.

The “Friends” cast is reuniting on their old network next month for a two-hour special that pays tribute to veteran sitcom director James Burrows, who recently helmed his 1,000th TV episode (15 of which were Friends).

It gets even better as the telecast, which is being likened to last February’s high-rated Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special, will also reunite the casts of other landmark Burrows series, including “Taxi”, “Cheers”, “Frasier” and “Will & Grace”. The stars of more recent Burrows programs, including “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mike & Molly”, will also appear.

Burrows hit the milestone 1,000 mark last November when he directed an episode of NBC’s midseason comedy “Crowded.”

The star-studded special is slated to tape later this month in Los Angeles and air on Sunday, Feb. 21 at 9/8c.

Friends, NBC, Reunion
