To celebrate its 25th anniversary this autumn, Friends is gearing up to screen fan-favourite episodes in cinemas across the US.

And as if that's not exciting enough, each screening is set to include exclusive interviews and never-before-seen content from the beloved comedy series too.

Presented by Fathom Events, the special showcase – which has been dubbed Friends 25th: The One with the Anniversary – will take place in 1,000 cinemas over the course of three nights.

Four episodes will be shown each evening and tickets go on sale on August 16, ahead of the kick-off date on Monday September 23.

There's no word yet on whether the UK will also get some Friends cinema love, so watch this space. Could we *be* any more jealous?

'We're thrilled to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Friends, a TV show that continues to impact culture and attract new fans from across generations,' Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said in a statement.

'Fans will have the opportunity to come together and look back on some of the most hilarious and emotional scenes from the acclaimed comedy – this time in theatres.'

Airing between September 1994 and May 2004, Friends starred Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc and Jennifer Aniston (as if you didn't know).

Warner Bros Television Group President & Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Gregorian added: 'The cultural impact that Friends continues to have, 25 years after its premiere, is astounding. [It's] a true testament to the genius of Marta Kauffman, David Crane, Kevin Bright and the incredibly talented cast.'

Despite so many reunion rumours and questions, there hasn't been an official revival yet, so this anniversary content may be the only 'new' material we'll see for a while.
