"Friends" fans, the wait is nearly over. HBO Max's "Friends: The Reunion" hits streaming later this month and we are so here for it.

Of course, "Friends" is one of the most popular TV series of all time. It debuted in 1994, earning massive ratings until its conclusion 2004. We're betting you already knew that.

Many of us grew up with "Friends." We watched it live on Thursday nights as kids and as teenagers. We bought the complete VHS or DVD collections (remember those?) to watch it again, whenever we wanted. Even today, it's easy to find an episode of Friends on TV in syndication.

We still regularly quote Friends, too. Whether that's yelling, "Pivot! Pivot!" while moving something heavy, or just asking someone, "How you doing?" in Joey's trademark voice, "Friends" is still part of our lives, nearly 30 years later.

And later this month, stars Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer are returning for a reunion special. Isn't that just spit on your neck fantastic?

Read on to discover the very latest about the Friends reunion, 'The One Where They Get Back Together."

We just got our first peek at the full trailer for the reunion special! Not only do our favorite friends reunite to discuss their history with the show, but we get to see them return to the iconic sets. Our hearts can't take the nostalgia: watching Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer play 'Friends' trivia in Monica's living room is everything. And hearing them discuss their casting, initial impressions of each other, and rise to fame? In our very best Janice voice: Oh. My. God.
