the one with the reboot
Friends fans across the nation have a special reason to be thankful this Turkey Day. The beloved NBC sitcom making a comeback — this time on the silver screen.
Eight Thanksgiving-themed episodes will play in select theaters for two days on November 24 and 25, event company Fathom Events announced Thursday, per The Hollywood Reporter. Tickets for the cinematic event, which will let fans relive some of the show's most iconic episodes, will go on sale at Fathom Events on November 1.
Whether you love the one with a lot of football or the one with a lot of varying mashed potatoes, there will be plenty of nostalgia gravy to go around. Surely Friends' Thanksgiving moments, from Monica wearing a turkey on her head to Rachel's unfortunate trifle cake, will be even more fun when viewed from a theater seat with some overpriced popcorn.
In its 25th anniversary year, the show clearly still has a strong hold on its pop culture relevance and has no intention of loosening its grip anytime soon. Back in September, Fathom Events showed 12 classic episodes from the series in select theaters, generating $2.9 million.
And since the show is leaving Netflix in May of 2020 for WarnerMedia's upcoming streaming service, HBO Max, its dedicated followers on the platform may want to head to the theaters to get their final holiday fix.
