Could we BE anymore excited right now?! The first promo for NBC’s upcoming ‘Friends’ reunion special has arrived, and while Chandler may be MIA, this first clip has us giddy all the same. See it here!
NBC is making it increasingly harder for us to contain our excitement over this new Friends reunion special! On Feb. 3 the first official promo for the network’s upcoming James Burrows TV tribute was released, showing the entire cast (sans Matthew Perry, of course) reunited and yeah, you better believe it feels so good. Click here to see the clip!
In a new promo for NBC’s upcoming special Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows, the stars of the beloved ’90s comedy — Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc to be specific — don’t waste any time cozying up to one another, and it’s beyond adorable! They also field some very surprising questions from host Andy Cohen who doesn’t miss the opportunity to ask them about about some of the show’s lesser known factoids. Namely: “Did you all sign contracts saying that you wouldn’t sleep with each other?”
We don’t want to give too much away because really, where’s the fun in that, but let’s just say that it prompts a very surprising reaction from David and Lisa. Umm, did they have a secret hookup behind-the-scenes all those years ago?! Unfortunately, we’re going to have to wait until February 21 to find out.
Of course, the Friends cast aren’t the only ones getting back together in the name of the legendary TV director. The preview also shows clips of Cheers‘ stars Ted Danson and Shelley Long — better known as Sam and Diane — sharing couch time as well as familiar faces from Will & Grace, The Big Bang Theory, Mike & Molly and many more.
As previously reported, the special is designed to celebrate James, who recently directed his 1,000th episode of TV — 15 of which were Friends episodes, including the pilot and that epic “we were on a break” epic. While Matthew Perry will unfortunately be missing from the cast reunion due to previous work commitments, it looks like there’s going to be more than enough star power to make up for his absence.
You can catch the special when it airs on Sunday, Feb. 21, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
