That 'Friends' reboot everyone has been waiting for is unlikely to happen.

However it does look like we're getting a 'Friends' reunion special so, you know, take what you can get.

The news comes just a month after the sitcom officially left Netflix US for WarnerMedia's streaming service, HBO Max.

Don't worry though, it's staying on Netflix Ireland and the UK (for now at least...). The special will help launch 'Friends' on HBO Max.

The news also comes shortly after David Schwimmer hit headlines for saying he pushed for his character Ross's girlfriends to be women of colour.

Series’ producer Warner Bros. TV are behind the reunion special, which will be an hour long.

All the original stars - Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry - are expected to return while co-creators/executive producers Marta Kauffman and David Crane are expected to have some involvement also.

According to Deadline, the stars are getting a $3-4 million pay cheque for doing the reunion. The total spend would be in line with what Netflix forks out for top comedians like Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, Ellen DeGeneres and Amy Schumer to headline hour-long specials.

The last time the cast's representatives spoke with WBTV and HBO Max was in late 2019. However talks fell through over pay.

The conversation did resume eventually and Matthew Perry sent fans in a frenzy with this recent cryptic tweet.

No one involved with the special has officially commented yet.
