The talks now under way involve an unscripted reunion special.
Sources note that WarnerMedia Entertainment and direct-to-consumer chairman Bob Greenblatt has been the driving force pushing for the Friends reunion.
Friends began as a story about a group of 20-somethings negotiating their journey into adult life - learning to earn a living and looking for love. That's $425 million for a show that hasn't produced a new episode in 15 years.
In 2016, all the cast except for Matthew Perry, who was in a West End play at the time, got together for a televised tribute to director James Burrows. It is still unclear if all the cast members will be playing their characters in the reunion or they will be reuniting to talk about the hit TV show. I love friends too much for them to do a reboot. Series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman would also appear on the show.

"So we're just trying really, we're working on something".
Max secured the rights to all 10 seasons of Friends for its streaming service that is scheduled to launch in April 2020.
With reboots and revivals of seemingly every other show on television being announced at different platforms, Jennifer Aniston also recently weighed in on why exactly a "Friends" reunion hadn't materialized in the form of a movie. "We're working on something". "We got it right, and we put a bow on it".
