Everyone’s favorite ‘90s sitcom is turning 25 this year, and if you’re looking for a way to mark the occasion – we’ve got you covered. A three-night cinematic special titled Friends 25th: The One with the Anniversary is coming to theaters this fall.

Unfortunately, this special won’t feature a reunion that we’ve all been hoping for, but it’s the next best thing. It will bring back 12 fan-favorite episodes to the big screens around the US on three nights – September 23rd, September 28th, and October 2nd.

The complete list of 1,000 theaters participating in this special event is yet to be revealed, and there’s no plan in place to expand to the rest of the world at this point in time. In addition to featuring newly remastered episodes, each screening will come with exclusive interviews and never-before-seen content.

The first episode of Friends aired on NBC on September 22nd, 1994. Over the course of the next decade, this sitcom received a series of Golden Globe and Emmy nominations, and went down in history as one of the most beloved comedy shows of all time, after ending its run in 2004.
