HBO Max is currently in negotiations to bring the stars of the popular sitcom Friends back for one more round — that is, an unscripted reunion special.

While certainly not a new season of the beloved show that kickstarted in 1994 and ran for 10 seasons, fans will likely be happy to see Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry on screen together once more.

Even if it’s just for a brief outing.

Hours after being released from prison for good behavior, Jesus Quintana (Turturro) reunites with his best friend and fellow underachiever Petey (Bobby Cannavale). In the first in a series of rapidly escalating bad decisions, they steal a vintage car parked in front of an upscale salon and hit the road for a no-holds-barred joyride — until the car’s gun-toting owner (Jon Hamm) catches up with them, wounding Petey. Fleeing the scene with fiercely free-spirited shampooist Marie (Audrey Tautou), Jesus and Petey continue their adventure in a series of stolen cars, cementing their partnership with an epic petty-crime spree and a three-way romance.
