Friends are back – level 3

20-01-2016 15:00

We waited long enough and now it’s finally been confirmed – the cast of “Friends” are reuniting.

“We’re friends, we’re six different people that seem to gel pretty well, and we get together and watch the show together on Thursday nights. I don’t know, it just worked from the second we met each other.”

TV bosses have announced Ross, Phoebe, Chandler, Monica, Rachel and Joey will get together for a two-hour comedy special on NBC next month.

The popular series, which followed the life of six adults in their mid-20s trying to navigate work, life and love in Manhattan, came to an end in 2004.

“We had a very good idea that this had a very good shot at least having a chance of being successful…”

The reunion is a tribute to TV comedy director James Burrows, in which Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer will feature. The six stars, whose careers were launched by the show, have rarely come together as a group since.

Aniston, Cox and Kudrow last appeared together in 2014 to spoof their “Friends” characters in a sketch on late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.

“Friends”, which premiered in 1994, became one of NBC’s most-watched shows and has appeared on lists of the greatest TV shows in history.

“Yes, yes, for the last time we are all actually good friends. Thank you. Thanks very much.”

Difficult words: cast (a group of actors), reunite (to meet again after some time), announce (to say something officially), shot (a chance), reunion (an act of reuniting), spoof (to make fun of, to imitate).
