Friends is an American sitcom about six friends struggling to survive on their own in Manhattan. In each episode, they find the companionship, comfort and support from each other to be the perfect solutions to the pressures of everyday life. The series stars 'The Ones That Were There For You' for ten seasons strong: Jennifer Aniston as “Rachel Green,” Courteney Cox as “Monica Geller,” Lisa Kudrow as “Phoebe Buffay,” Matt LeBlanc as “Joey Tribbiani,” Matthew Perry as “Chandler Bing,” and David Schwimmer as “Dr. Ross Geller.” Friends has also featured many notable guest stars including Tom Selleck, Aisha Tyler, Jon Favreau, Anna Faris, Hank Azaria, Bruce Willis, Reese Witherspoon, Christina Applegate, Sean Penn, Jon Lovitz, Alec Baldwin, and many more. Friends was created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman and aired on NBC from September 22, 1994 to May 6, 2004. The series was produced by Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television.
NBC has released the first promo for it's upcoming special Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows. And it features the first footage of the much ballyhooed Friends reunion. For the first time, we get to see stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer together since the show came to an end in 2004. And it looks like they'll be getting some heavy questions while on stage.
A lot of attention is being payed to this particular reunion. And that's because these guys haven't all been in the same room together in ages. But some are certainly disappointed, because this won't be a 'true' Friends reunion. Matthew Perry was unable to participate. Instead, he will be Skyping in his participation. The actor is currently in London acting in a play.Read More
Matthew Perry also appeared on the U.K. talk show The Graham Norton Show, where he confirmed he won't be in attendance for the special, but the actor did reveal that he is going to introduce them via video from London. So, while you will technically see all of the main Friends stars on this special, they won't all be in the same room together, or even in the same country together, for that matter. Still, it should be quite the event, honoring one of the most iconic TV directors of all time.
James Burrows recently directed his 1,000th episode of television with the NBC midseason sitcom Crowded. He directed 15 episodes of Friends, including the pilot episode. This NBC special honoring this TV legend, who also co-created the 1980s classic Cheers, is expected to cover all facets of his legendary career The special is being likened to that of the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special that aired last year.Read More

When all 236 episodes of Friends hit Netflix earlier this year, it quickly became one of the streaming service's most watched TV shows. 90s nostalgia is at an all-time high, and the popular NBC sitcom, which ran from 1994 until 2004, is at the epicenter of this tsunami. While there is no word on a Friends reunion series happening anytime soon, one of the more popular elements to emerge from the comedy got revived last night, and it sent a crowd of thousands into a screaming fit.
The reigning queen of pop and country, Taylor Swift had a big surprise awaiting fans at last night's concert, where she was performing live at L.A.'s Staples center. And she saved her best special guest for the encore. Closing out the Los Angeles-leg of her '1989' world tour on Wednesday, she shocked the crowd when she brought one of the iconic Friends on stage.Read More
90s nostalgia is running rampant, with The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story airing on Labor Day, Girl Meets World pulling in huge ratings for Disney, and a Full House reboot on the way. Now comes the Friends reunion we've all been waiting for, which happened last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
