"So no one told you life was gonna be this way..."

Cue up the Rembrandts, because your favorite Friends are reuniting—yes, all six of them! NBC announced at the Television Critics Association’s press tour that the cast would reunite for a a two-hour special. Per Entertainment Weekly, all six stars—Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer—are on board.

The special will be a tribute to comedy legend James Burrow, who not only worked on Friends, but also Taxi, Frasier, Will & Grace, Two and a Half Men, Big Bang Theory, Mike & Molly and more memorable sitcoms. Burrows also co-created Cheers.

"I'm hoping all six will be in same room at same time," NBC chief Robert Greenblatt told reporters. "I'm not sure we can logistically pull that off." TV fans have long heard that efforts to reunite the cast have proven difficult with one or two actors resisting. 

The special will air on NBC on Sunday, February 21. In the meantime, take it back to when the show's three female leads came together for a sketch on Jimmy Kimmy Live!
