But it hasn't stopped Friends fans from getting excited.

And yes, the entire gang - including Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc - will be there (for you). The special coincides with the show's 25th anniversary as well as its move to the new streaming platform.

Reilly, a longtime media executive who also serves as president of cable channels TNT, TBS and truTV, said he had the opportunity to work on the show during some of its 10-year-run on NBC.

While the original cast has publicly reunited at various points throughout the years, the reunion special marks the first time since the series ended in 2004 that all six cast members are together at once. If you haven't heard of it yet, our favourite group of friends will be reuniting exclusively in May 2020, 15 years after the series's finale.

Perry broke the news on Instagram with the message: "It's happening" - which was then shared by the rest of the cast. The news of the reunion finally came when it was revealed the cast was working on something "special" with HBO.

Their return isn't coming cheap though, as The Hollywood Reporter is reporting each actor is receiving "more than double their former per-episode fee for the reunion and be paid between $2.5 million and $3 million for the special".

HBO Max has now secured rights to the show's back catalogue for $425 million, BBC reported.

HMO Max paid $425 million to snatch the streaming rights to the 236 episodes of "Friends" from Netflix previous year. He will also be the executive producer along with the executive producers of the show itself - Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman and David Crane.
