Tom Selleck Claims He'd Join HBO's 'Friends' Reunion If Given the Opportunity
Former "Friends" alum, Tom Selleck, revealed that he would be willing to join the show's reunion which was set for HBO Max's launch in May.
"Friends" star, Tom Selleck opened up about his opinion on the possibility of a sequel of the show. The actor revealed that he was very open to the idea and that he enjoyed working on the set. He said:
"It was a great place to work. If the opportunity came up, I'd do it again! The actors were grateful for the opportunity..."

The iconic sitcom first aired in September 1994 and quickly made its way into the hearts of many viewers. Tom's character was a divorced ophthalmologist, Richard Burke, who was the older love interest of Monica, played by Courtney Cox.
The veteran actor featured in the show's second, third, and sixth seasons and finally said goodbye, after a brief return to threaten the new relationship Monica had found herself in.
Although he had left the franchise a little over twenty decades ago, the "Blue Bloods" star confessed that he had made many memories on the set and was still hopeful even though he had not been contacted to return in the show's sequel.

Selleck first shot to the spotlight when he starred in Magnum P.I in the 80s as a private investigator named "Thomas Magnum." Despite his fast-paced career, the actor never strayed too far from home. He explained:
"I'm a fairly private person. And I've always treasured the balance between work and time with my family. It's always about them."
After his nearly decade-long starring in Magnum P.I, the actor retreated from Hollywood, in search of what he termed "a three-dimensional life." Luckily, "Friends" caught his eye.
The show's reunion was announced and confirmed late in February after ages of teasing impatient fans with rumors. The special was supposed to air when HBO Max launches in May 2020.
However, due to the unprecedented pandemic, it was never filmed. The anticipating fans would then have to wait again — for when the special would finally be dropped on the streaming platform.
Tom's former on-screen beau, Courtney Cox, admitted that she would use the extra-time the pandemic had given her, to binge-watch "Friends," to jog her memory and put her up-to-speed for when filming eventually began.
While hoping for the chance to come back to the show and dazzle his fans with his excellent acting skills once again, Tom Selleck resides with his beloved family on his Ventura, California ranch.
