We just hope we're not being bamboozled.

Attention all "Friends" fans -- a reunion might be closer than you think.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Tuesday, an unscripted "Friends" reunion special is being developed at HBO Max, Warner Bros.' upcoming streaming service.

All six core cast members -- Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer -- in addition to series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman, are all in talks to reunite for the special, according to insiders. However, THR says the deal is far from being finalized.

Sources also note that Bob Greenblat, WarnerMedia Entertainment and direct-to-consumer chairman, is the driving force pushing for the reunion as it would be a nice complement for the debut of HBO Max.

Though the streaming service's exact release date has yet to be determined, as many "Friends" know, the comedy series' 10 seasons will be making the move from Netflix to HBO Max in 2020.

While the show's cast and creators have shot down most ideas of a possible reboot or reunion over the years, Aniston somewhat alluded to a potential project in the works when speaking with Ellen DeGeneres last month.

"We would love for there to be something, but we don't know what that something is," the actress said. "So we're just trying. We're working on something."

The core cast of "Friends" got together in October, not long after the show celebrated its 25th anniversary. The reunion was documented in Aniston's record-breaking first Instagram post, above.

Although an unscripted reboot probably isn't ideal for many fans, we'll take anything we can get. We just hope we're not being bamboozled.

HBO Max and WBTV were unavailable for comment when contacted by TooFab.
