And to celebrate 25 years since the iconic series launched, the six stars will reportedly appear in the hour-long special to help launch the upcoming streaming service HBO Max.

It's thought that Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc are each pocketing a cool between 3-4million each by Warner Brothers.

According to Deadline, the decision for this show was finally confirmed after the negotiations fell through last year over their wages.

The one-off hour long episode will help launch HBO Max but the episode's format is still unclear.
