The one with the long-awaited reunion.
Warner Bros is finalizing deals with the cast of "Friends" for a reunion special that will likely be used to launch the HBO Max streaming service this spring, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter.
There has been a flurry of media reports about a potential reunion since Jennifer Aniston, who portrayed Rachel in the hit sitcom series, hinted that something might be underway.
Hollywood website Deadline said the stars will be paid between $3 million-$4 million for an unscripted reunion special.
AT&T Inc’s Warner Bros Television told the Journal there is no deal. A WarnerMedia spokesman did not immediately respond to Reuters queries related to the reports.
The series has found a new lease of life on Netflix where it was the second most-watched show in 2018, according to Nielsen data.
Last year, Aniston spoke to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres about a possible new “Friends” project saying: “We would love for there to be something, but we don’t know what that something is. So we’re just trying. We’re working on something.”
A cryptic tweet by Perry earlier this week whipped fans into a frenzy that the special might be announced soon.
