The one with the reunion.

We couldn’t be any more excited to be reuniting with our Friends for the upcoming unscripted special.

After a lot of back-and-forth and negotiations, all six members of the cast have signed of for the reunion, which will air exclusively on HBO MAX, according to TV Line. 

The cast — Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer — will reunite in the original soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank California for the special. Hopefully, they’ll be on the orange couch!

They will also be joined by original series EP’s Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman, and David Crane.

“Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together — we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa, and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire Friends library,” Kevin Reilly, CCO of HBO Max (and president of TBS, TNT, and truTV), said in statement. “I became aware of Friends when it was in the very early stages of development and then had the opportunity to work on the series many years later and have delighted in seeing it catch on with viewers generation after generation. It taps into an era when friends – and audiences – gathered together in real time, and we think this reunion special will capture that spirit, uniting original and new fans.”

It’s important to note this is not a revival or reboot, but if we all wish hard enough, maybe it’s the first-step to something bigger? Those involved with the serious previously turned down the idea claiming a revival would only “disappoint.” And why ruin something great, right?

Plus, we have the cast on Instagram where they’re all still friends and have been hanging out, sharing photos, and breaking the Internet.

However, this will be the first time they’re all together on-screen since the show’s end in 2004.

While the show has been off-air for years, generations are still discovering the series and becoming fans.

When Netflix pulled Friends off their streaming service this January, fans riled and it caused a spike in DVD purchases of the seasons. The series will head to HBO MAX.

Jennifer Aniston teased the reunion posting a photo of the cast on Instagram with the caption: “it’s happening.”

The special is set for May!

Brian Tee’s ‘Chicago Med’ Exit Explained

Brian Tee's 'Chicago Med' Exit Explained

We’re just a few weeks away from Brian Tee’s final Chicago Med episode. 

The actor will depart the series on the Dec 7 episode, which will also feature his wedding to longtime love and fiancee, April (Yaya DaCosta).

People exclusively revealed photos from the couple’s big day, and now, we’re getting some more insight as to how Ethan Choi will be written off. 

Co-showrunner Andrew Schneider explained that after the wedding, Ethan and April will start a “mobile clinic so that together they can take first-rate medical care to underserved neighborhoods in Chicago.”

We absolutely love this idea as it stays true to his character, and it falls in line with April’s professional aspirations.

Schneider emphasized that the couple will be staying in the Windy City despite leaving Gaffney, which means that there is a chance for both Tee and DaCosta to return for a guest appearance in the near future if they choose. Tee has already been announced as a director of the upcoming 16th episode.

In the previous episode, Choi’s co-workers at the hospital were all surprised to get an invitation to the wedding considering the couple was broken up for quite some time. And while it may seem abrupt and haste, Choi told Charles that losing his father put a lot of things in perspective for him, and he’s finally ready to be the man that April always knew he could be. 

We can’t wait to see their beautiful wedding pan out on the fall finale of Chicago Med!

A post shared by YOU (@younetflix)

In the new season, Joe has created a new life for himself in London, where he’s naturally become obsessed with yet another beautiful woman, an art gallery director named Kate (played by Charlotte Ritchie). And yes, he’s still pursuing his quest of finding Marienne (Tati Gabrielle).

And from experience, expect things to get very, very, very complicated. 

See you Feb 9!
