According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show's six main stars (Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer) and series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman are now in talks with HBO Max to bring an unscripted reunion special to AT&T's streaming service.

The site claims Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer, as well as series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman, are all being sought after to appear in the unscripted reunion.

It turns out HBO Max is the one that will be there for us.

They added that there is still a possibility that the talks could fizzle out and the whole concept could never come to fruition, but let's hope that's not the case.

According to The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline, an unscripted Friends reunion special is in the works at HBO Max.

Rumours of a Friends reunion began circulating in 2014, 10 years after the original show ended, and the show has gained a new audience after becoming available on streaming service Netflix.

HBO Max and producers WBTV declined comment. TV are reportedly far from settling an agreement about this reunion.

Friends is now available for streaming on Netflix. They say that the cast is willing to do it is an accomplishment in and of itself. Five of the six stars - save for Perry - participated in the look back that also featured the casts of Will and Grace, Cheers and The Big Bang Theory.

Aniston previously told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres that the cast were 'working on something... but we don't know what that something is. Recently, Jennifer Aniston debuted her first post on Instagram with a selfie with all the Friends in tow. So, we're just trying.

Friends has been in the zeitgeist with the worldwide celebration of the show's 25th anniversary.

The cast has maintained for years that they wouldn't want to do a scripted return to their beloved Central Perk.
