Watch: ‘Friends’ Cast Members Reunite in James Burrows Tribute Teaser

3 February 2016 5:43 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The “Friends” cast may be there for all of us one more time. NBC’s tribute to director James Burrows will bring together stars of some of America’s most memorable comedies.

The network’s latest promo for the special released Wednesday shows Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer together again for the two-hour show dedicated to the career of comedy director Burrows, who directed 15 “Friends” episodes, including “The One Where Ross and Rachel Take a Break.”

This almost-reunion is missing one key player, though — Matthew Perry is currently in London for “The End of Longing,” which marks his playwriting debut.

Matthew may tape something for the tribute,” Perry’s spokeswoman Lisa Kasteler said. “In other words, this is not the reunion people have been hoping for.”

Audiences only have to wait a few more weeks before they can watch the "Friends" cast reunion for themselves, and according to one star, the event was as wonderful as you're imagining.

David Schwimmer spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the gathering, which took place last week at a ceremony saluting legendary television director James Burrows, and featured the casts of several shows Burrows shepherded, including "The Big Bang Theory," "Frasier," and "Will & Grace." The event was taped, and will air on NBC next month.

According to Schwimmer, the experience of reuniting with almost the entire "Friends" crew (minus Matthew Perry, who's in London rehearsing for a play) couldn't have been better, and Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, and Matt LeBlanc were all thrilled to be there for Burrows.

"It was just lovely to be in the same room and to honor Jimmy, who we all really love," Schwimmer told Et. »

15 January 2016 7:20 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sorry, "Friends" fans, but that so-called "reunion" of the six sitcom castmates isn't really a reunion anymore: One of the main friends won't be there for you.

Matthew Perry will be absent when production starts on the planned tribute to legendary sitcom director James Burrows, which was to have featured several casts of his famous series, including "Frasier," "Will & Grace," "The Big Bang Theory," and the "Friends" crew. Perry is currently in London rehearsing for a new play, "The End of Longing," which is set to begin previews in the coming weeks. The Burrows special -- which is airing on NBC next month -- is set to tape on January 24.

NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt had gotten fans' hopes up earlier this week when he announced at a Television Critics Association panel that the "Friends" gang -- Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Perry, and David Schwimmer -- were »
