Friends star Matthew Perry who died at the age of 54 last month is still being remembered across the world as beloved Chandler Bing who brought so much fun to life for millions.
The sudden and mysterious nature of his death shocked the world as he was found unconscious in a hot tub at his Los Angeles home. Perry, who rose to fame after his role in the iconic 1994 sitcom, is remembered by millions.
The show has garnered huge success since it first aired and still ranks among one of the most-watched shows. In 2021, HBO Max aired a Friends Reunion Special.
However, the show’s $425 million exclusive deal with Max will come to an end next year. Once the deal expires, the show will land on its previous streaming home, Netflix, according to The US Sun.
Both, Aniston and Schwimmer, along with Courteney Cox (Monica Geller) and Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay) are part-owners of the franchise. Meaning, they all have a say in what’s next for the show.
After Perry’s untimely death, his estate is expected to play a major role in deciding the fate of the show after the expiration of its multi-million dollar deal with Max.
According to the outlet, an insider revealed, “There had been brainstorming on what to do for the show’s 30th anniversary when Matthew passed away, and of course Matthew’s passing changes everything.”
The insider continued, “While a big budget TV special is unlikely, a return of the show to Netflix when the Max deal expires is much more probable,” adding, “Even though the show has been one of Max’s biggest successes, Netflix would make it available to a much bigger US and global audience again. It all comes down to the deal and the cast, as well as Matthew’s estate.”
