This Is The One Where The 'Friends' Cast Finally Reunited

Aka the one we've been waiting for.

Twelve years after "Friends" ended, the beloved cast of the NBC sitcom (minus Matthew Perry) finally got back together. They even added some new friends to the mix. 

Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer got together for an upcoming NBC special honoring director James Burrows. News of the reunion first surfaced online earlier this month, but dreams were shot when Perry revealed he wouldn't be there

But alas, in the absence of Perry, the "Friends" welcomed a few new faces into their group: stars of "The Big Bang Theory" Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg and Jim Parsons. (We think it's safe to say #squadgoals is accurate here.)

Cuoco shared a photo of the super-group on Instagram with the caption, "FRIENDS #MEETS BBT," along with two hysterically crying faces.

Perry, who's in London working on a play, may appear on the reunion show via taped recording. During an appearance on "The Graham Norton Show," the actor told Norton, "The other five are going to be on this special, and I am going to introduce them from London." 

So, he'll still be there for them, just not physically. 

Other stars who attended the taping of the special include Ted Danson, Shelley Long, Bebe Neuwirth and George Wendt of "Cheers," Tony Danza and Danny DeVito from "Taxi" and Sean Hayes, Eric McCormack, Debra Messing and Megan Mullally from "Will & Grace." 

"Must See TV: A Tribute to James Burrows" airs on Sunday, Feb. 21 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
