[Ed. note: Matthew Perry will not attend the NBC tribute to director James Burrows, MTV News has confirmed. Perry will be in London in rehearsals for his play, “The End of Longing,” which begins previews on Feb. 2 at the Playhouse Theatre.]
Did you think that your day, week, month or even year was made when you heard about every single episode of “Friends” hitting Netflix? Well, prepare yourselves for this news!
This February, the entire cast of “Friends” will reunite for a two-hour special on NBC. Now, before you lobsters get too excited, this is not a “Friends” reunion special. Rather, the special will pay tribute to veteran sitcom director James Burrows, who recently helmed his 1,000th TV episode. Rachel, Ross, Monica and co. will all be on hand to honor his incredible career milestone.
According to TV Line’s Michael Ausiello, series stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry will all appear together for the reunion on Feb. 21 in Los Angeles. Honestly, we just can’t wait for that behind-the-scenes selfie.
But the “Friends” cast isn’t the only star-studded group joining the celebration of Burrow’s incredible television career. The show will also reunite the casts “Taxi,” “Cheers,” “Frasier” and “Will & Grace.”
Hey, as long as we get an all-star “Smelly Cat” singalong, we’re good.
