At long last, the cast of 'Friends' - that's Matt LeBlanc, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer - are reuniting on screen for the first time in years.

All six of the core members will take part in an unscripted reunion episode to celebrate 'Friends' going to HBO Max, HBO's own answer to Netflix. All six posted an old promotional image on their Instagram at the same time, tagging one another with the caption "It's happening..."

Well, all except Matt LeBlanc, who posted an image from 'M*A*S*H' instead of 'Friends'.

So far, all that's been confirmed are the rumours that have been circulating as far back as November. The episode will coincide with the launch of HBO Max in May, with the parent company WarnerMedia paying out $425 million for the rights to the series.

Not only that, the six themselves are credited as executive producers on the reunion episode and will each pick up somewhere in the region of $3 million each for taking part. Not bad money to hang out with your friends on camera for an hour or so.

It's unclear whether or not HBO Max will launch in Ireland, as HBO currently has a deal with Sky to broadcast its episodes exclusively through Sky Atlantic and has a co-production deal with Sky Studios as well.

Odds are that the reunion episode will be broadcast on Sky Atlantic or something to that effect, but for now, we can all stop wondering whether it's happening or not.
