Friends fans have been calling for a reunion since the show’s finale aired in 2004, and it seems they will finally get it.

All six cast members from the show that spurred millions of Rachel haircuts and daggy Chandler jokes will come together for a special TV tribute to the show’s director, James Burrows.

Burrows is celebrating an incredible 1000 episodes behind the camera – 15 of which were for Friends.

Aside from the 90s mega hit – which launched the careers of Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Matt LeBlanc – Burrows also co-created the classic bar comedy Cheers with brothers Glen and Les Charles.

The prolific director also had a hand in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Frasier, Third Rock From the Sun, Will and Grace, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory and 2 Broke Girls.

In the past, Friends cast and crew have been reticent about any plans for a cast reunion, with co-creator Marta Kaufman telling E News the fans: “They just have to let it go.”

Although this reunion doesn’t sound like the type to divulge whether Rachel and Ross ended up together (or whether Monica ever chilled out), it will be the first time all six members of the cast have come together since the emotional finale.

According the TV Line, the special will air on February 21 in Los Angeles.
