“The Friends cast have been confirmed to reunite for a two-hour special. Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross will meet up once again on US network NBC… the programme scheduled to air on Sunday 21 February,” stated independent.co.uk.
The special is actually for the comedy director James Burrows’ 1,000th TV episode, as stated in ew.com.
Since James Burrows did not direct only Friends, the casts of Taxi, Cheers, Frasier, and Will & Grace will also reunite, according to mtv.com.
Sadly, news has arrived from Lisa Kasteler, Matthew Perry’s spokeswoman, that Matthew Perry will not be attending the reunion. He will be in London rehearsing for The End of Longing, a play, reported usatoday.com.
