Sources caution that a deal is far from done and agreements with cast and creatives still need to be hammered out. When and if deals are completed, the challenge then becomes sorting out everyone's schedules. Of course, the talks could fizzle and the whole concept could fall apart.

HBO Max and producers WBTV declined comment.

News of a reunion special arrives as Friends has found new audiences at its streaming home on Netflix. The series is officially leaving the streamer at year's end and will make its debut on WarnerMedia-backed HBO Max when that $15 monthly subscription platform launches at a date to be determined. Sources say WarnerMedia paid $85 million per year for five years ($425 million) to reclaim streaming rights to Friends for its own platform. (Netflix, for its part, paid $80 million-$100 million to keep Friends on its service for 2019 and was ultimately outbid by WarnerMedia.)

a woman standing in front of Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow posing for a photo: They said they would always be there! The cast of Friends has remained close since the show ended its 10-season run in 2004. Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green), Courteney Cox (Monica Geller), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay), Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani), Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing) and David Schwimmer (Ross Geller) became real-life best friends as they portrayed 20-somethings who grew into a family while navigating dating, careers and more in New York City. As such, the six core castmates reunited on multiple occasions in the years after wrapping their beloved sitcom. “I miss a lot about that time. Having a job that was absolute, pure joy,” Aniston told InStyle in August 2019. “I miss getting to be with people I love massively and respect beyond words. So, yes, these days I’m super nostalgic. Anything can make me go, ‘Aww.’” The Morning Show star called the NBC series “the ultimate trust exercise” due to the fact that “there was a comfort in numbers there, so we all held each other up.”  		 			 		 	 Aniston made herself into a vocal advocate for an onscreen reunion too. “I would do it,” she reiterated during a June 2019 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “The girls would do it. And the boys would do it, I’m sure. … Anything could happen!” Cox, for her part, regularly shares her affection for the career-changing project via Instagram. The Cougar Town alum posted a throwback photo of the cast on an airplane in May 2019. “The one where the six of us went to Vegas and no one knew we were F.R.I.E.N.D.S yet,” she captioned the shot. “#tbt #beforeitaired #lovetheseguys.” As the group moved on to other ventures, their former costars supported them by making guest appearances on their new shows, including Cougar Town, Dirt, Episodes and Web Therapy. Reunions are not limited to the core six either. Fans went wild in December 2018 when comedian Claudia Oshry captured footage of Cox bumping into Tom Selleck — who recurred as her boyfriend Richard Burke throughout the series — at a bar. “Spotted in NY: Dr. Richard Burke and Monica Geller saying hi to one another,” she tweeted at the time. “Shook. What will Chandler say?” Scroll to see the Friends cast reuniting through the years!

Sources note that WarnerMedia Entertainment and direct-to-consumer chairman Bob Greenblatt has been the driving force pushing for the Friends reunion, which would pair well with HBO Max's debut and the comedy's new streaming home. Sources say that the cast is willing to do it is an accomplishment in and of itself.

The cast and creators, for their part, have remained steadfast over the years since the comedy wrapped its 10-season run that they would not do any sort of scripted revival. NBC staged a mini-Friends reunion in 2016 as part of a special honoring legendary director and producer James Burrows. Five of the six stars — save for Perry — participated in the look back that also featured the casts of Will and Grace, Cheers and The Big Bang Theory.

For her part, Aniston on Oct. 27 shot down word of a Friends reboot (with a flat-out "no") but did tell the daytime host that "We would love for there to be something, but we don't know what that something is.

The drama marks her first TV series regular role since she wrapped Friends. (On Morning Show, Aniston stars opposite her Friends on-screen sister, Reese Witherspoon.)

A Friends reunion would immediately provide the kind of must-see TV that an upstart streaming service like HBO Max would want. Disney, for example, launched its streaming service Tuesday with its highly anticipated Star Wars scripted drama The Mandalorian.
