Avid fans of Friends have long talked about possible plans for spin-offs or reboots of the beloved television show. And while all of that has yet to happen, this latest news about the sitcom just might be able to curb fan’s appetites at least for a little while because yes, Friends is coming to the big screen. But before you get too excited, here’s the story.
To celebrate the 25thanniversary of the show’s premiere, Warner Brothers just announced that they will be partnering with Fathom Events to present “Friends 25th: The One with the Anniversary.” The event will showcase twelve fan-favorite episodes over three nights.
“We’re thrilled to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Friends, a TV show that continues to impact culture and attract new fans from across generations,” Ray Nutt, CEO of Fathom Events, said in a statement. “Fans will have the opportunity to come together and look back on some of the most hilarious and emotional scenes from the acclaimed comedy — this time in theaters.”
The three-night event will also include bonus footage from the stars of Friends including starring Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer.
Best part of all of this? No matter where you live, you will be able to see this, as it will run in over a thousand theatres across the country on September 23, September 28 and October 2. In the meantime, we’ll just be watching these FRIENDS bloopers on repeat.
