Matthew Perry has caused chaos among Friends fans after he posted a photo of himself in the makeup chair with a deeply intriguing caption.

"Seconds before eating a makeup brush," he joked. "Not to mention reuniting with my Friends."

The idea that a Friends reunion is finally imminent has set off shockwaves among fans of the 1990s sitcom, who have been anxiously awaiting this moment ever since it was announced way back in February 2020 that the gang would be getting back together.

It was revealed last year the hit series will return with the full cast more than 15 years after the final episode aired in 2004.

His post quickly notched up over 27K likes before it was taken down, according to Page Six.

Taking to Instagram at the time, the stars of the show shared a promo picture of the full original cast in a rockabilly-inspired shoot with a very short caption, that was all fans needed to hear.

“It’s happening…..” each of the five wrote, tagging the full cast, who all recently joined the social media platform, and HBO Max, the network’s new streaming service.


"OMG OMG!" was a popular reaction from Matthew's Insta followers after his latest post, as was the heart-eyes emoji.

"What?" was another comment.
