While no one's confirmed what exactly is 'happening', Variety reports that the stars will be coming together for an exclusive unscripted special on HBO Max, a forthcoming American subscription video-on-demand streaming service from WarnerMedia Entertainment.
It is believed that the new streaming service will also be taking on all 236 episode of Friends.
Matt LeBlanc, who played Joey Tribbiani, took a different approach to his co-stars, instead sharing a snap of the cast of war sitcom M*A*S*H, the film of which, ironically, starred Elliott Gould, who famously played Monica and Ross' dad in the series.
Don't get too excited, though. According to reports, it's not going to be a new episode, but rather an unscripted reunion special, which will air next May.
This all comes after Perry posted a cryptic message to his Twitter account earlier this month, in which he hinted at something exciting coming up.
Writing on his account on 5 February, the actor said: "Big news coming... "

Well, I guess he wasn't wrong.
At the time, fans were left frustrated by the post, demanding answers.
Asking for some information, one user pleaded: "Please say it's a Friends reunion!?!"
A second person said: "Reunion??? It's 2020 and everyone including Emma has woken up from their nap!!!"
A third joked: "Big news or BiNg news?
But despite Friends being the biggest thing the cast have been involved in, they haven't been just twiddling their thumbs waiting for its return.
Just last week it was announced that Schwimmer would be reading a short tale on CBeebies Bedtime Stories.
The 53-year-old will be reading The Smeds and the Smoos by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, and judging by a teaser clip, it seems like Schwimmer will deliver the story with Ross-like vigour.
As if that wasn't enticing enough, it seems like the book will teach some important life lessons for your kids too.
A synopsis reads: "The ultimate picture book dream team return with a charming tale of star-crossed (quite literally) alien love and an entertainingly conveyed message about difference and tolerance. Told in Donaldson's trademark flawless verse, The Smeds and the Smoos is another classic to rival Zog and the Gruffalo.
"The Smeds (who are red) never mix with the Smoos (who are blue). So when a young Smed and Smoo fall in love, their families strongly disapprove."
So, if you hate Friends - they do exist - maybe have a go on that. Yeah?
