End point to conjectures and elucubrations. The future content platform HBO Max confirmed last night that the six protagonists of the mythical series «Friends» will meet again in a special that will be available from the launch of the service next May. Both the actors and the creators of the series and the Warner Bros. studios have reached an agreement to prepare this special after arduous negotiations, according to “The Hollywood Reporter.” The end of the series was aired in 2004 and since then the millions of fans following the series have sighed for this new meeting.
Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer, as well as the creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman, would have asked for this program twice the salary they charged for each episode of the series, an amount that the US media estimate that it would amount to 2.3 or 2.7 million euros.
It should be noted that this special meeting would not be a fictional episode in which each actor will give his character again but a “retrospective” style show with interviews with the cast.
The special will be shot in studio 24 of the Warner Bros headquarters in Burbank, California, the same place where the original series was filmed. «Friends», which premiered in 1994, closed in 2004 ten seasons of success after 236 episodes. .
