"Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together -- we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa, and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire Friends library," Kevin Reilly, chief content officer for HBO Max, said in a statement.
"It's happening," Aniston, Cox, Kudrow, Perry and Schwimmer all posted on Instagram Friday afternoon alongside a picture of the six stars.
The Instagram posts went huge, with more than 10 million people liking Aniston's picture, and celebrities including Reese Witherspoon, Awkafina, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Hyland, Celeste Barber, David Spade and Ashley Benson all responding.
While LeBlanc didn't post the picture to Instagram, he did post the same caption under a different photo -- one of the cast of M.A.S.H.
"Oh no," Aniston responded. "No no no NO LeBlanc! Could this BE more NOT what we said to post?"
"Uh no Matt," Cox said. "Wrong reunion."
"Ha!" Kudrow posted. "They do look like us..."
The special will be directed by Ben Winston, who will executive produce alongside Aniston, Cox, Kudrow, LeBlanc, Perry, Schwimmer and others.
