A few days ago, it was announced that the cast of hugely popular comedy show Friends were reuniting for a two hour special in tribute to the show’s director James Burrows.
But it won’t be the reunion we are all expecting as Mathew Perry won’t be joining his former cast members in the studio as he’ll be in London rehearsing for a play, but there’s some good news; he will make a contribution to the show.
Speaking on The Graham Norton Show, he explained: “It’s not the reunion everyone is hoping for – they are celebrating Jim Burrows who was a director of Friends. The other five are going to be on this special and I am going to introduce them from London. I’m doing the play here, so I can’t be there.”
It would have been great to see all six cast members back for the 2 hour reunion special, but we’ll take what we can get!
The special is scheduled to air on NBC on Sunday, February 21 at 9pm ET.
