The first teaser for the James Burrows tribute on NBC is here, seeing the cast of one of the world’s most successful sitcoms ever reunited. Prepare yourself as it looks like it’s one not to be missed.
David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox managed to delight everyone with their unchanged chemistry.
Around 12 years after “Friends” aired its season finale; the much-loved sitcom was aired anew, to the delight of fans. Now, to raise the ante, a two-hour special reunion will air on February 21st. The two-hour tribute to its creator, James Burrows. An industry veteran, Burrows has been involved in TV sitcoms since the 1970’s.
In January, it was announced that a Friends reunion would make its way to NBC this month, after months of fans pushing for a reboot of the iconic television series.
“I’m hoping all six will be in the same room at the same time,” NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said when the announcement was made. “I’m not sure we can logistically pull it off.”
And now every fan is so excited. *Tears shedding*

The cast of Friends – except Matthew Perry – sits down with Andy Cohen, as the host asks his enticing questions. Also making an appearance are the stars of your entire favorite past television comedies, including Cheers, Taxi, Fraiser, and Will & Grace. Stars from current sitcoms Mike & Molly and The Big Bang Theory will be present as well.
Fans can expect to see the special in full, airing on NBC and no doubt hitting Youtube soon after, on February 21. Who all will be tuning in? Are you excited about seeing the Friends back together, or just sad that Chandler won’t be there?
