Friends agree to film a reunion special



Story: Jack Foley

THE cast of Friends could well remain there for us for a little while longer yet, it seems.

According to a report on movie website, IMDB, the popular ensemble cast have been given a record breaking $2 million each to make a reunion special that takes place one year after the current season’s finale.

All six stars - Jennifer Anniston, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow - have allegedly agreed to film a single 90- minute special, which will be completed right after shooting finishes on the last ever episode of the Manhattan-based comedy.

A spokesperson for television network NBC confirmed: "We knew it would be tough to get the Friends stars together again once they'd gone their separate ways. So we put an offer on the table to persuade them to film the reunion right away."

The plot of the one-off special is said to feature the friends coming together for a Thanksgiving dinner, and will be screened in conjunction with the holiday, in America, during November.

It will also pave the way for the spin-off series, Joey, which will feature the character of Joey (LeBlanc) in a series of LA-based adventures of his own. That show is said to be courting some of the character’s popular previous liaisons to return, including former love interest and flat-mate, Elle Macpherson.
