You've probably woken up to news that a Friends reunion is happening next month and everyone is really quite excited.

But sadly, it's not a new episode or a movie…

Instead, fans will see Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer join forces to pay tribute to comedy director James Burrows.

Friends (NBC) season 1
USA - 1994-1995


They will all be seen in a two-hour special on US TV on 21 February, talking about the achievements of Burrows, who was worked on many iconic American comedy series.

Well, at least we'll get to see them all together on screen again, right?

Um, no. According to the bosses at NBC, they aren't sure all six stars will film together because of logistical reasons. "I'm hoping all six will be in same room at the same time," said Bob Greenblatt from NBC. "I'm not sure we can logistically can pull it off."

Back in April last year, Courteney Cox - who played Monica - joked that people needed to stop lobbying for a full Friends reunion, saying: "Dear Lord, let it go people! We're not doing it! It's not going to happen!"

And back in 2013, Lisa - who played Phoebe - said: "I'm too old. I wouldn't even have an interest in seeing what those people are doing 10 years later as parents that have to be responsible... It would be so different that it wouldn't be Friends anymore."

Let's hope they change their minds one day...

Friends ran from 1994 until 2004.
