The actor, who played Chandler on the show, posted on Twitter: "Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March. Looks like we have a busy year coming up.
"And that's the way I like it!"
Back in February the cast of Friends confirmed that they were due to reunite for a TV special, 16 years after the final episode aired.
Confirming the news, David Schwimmer (Ross Geller), Courteney Cox (Monica Geller), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green), and Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing) all shared the same post on social media.
Sharing a snap of the gang all together, they wrote: "It's happening."
Don't get too excited, though. According to reports, it's not going to be a new episode, but rather an unscripted reunion special.
This all comes after Perry posted a cryptic message to his Twitter account earlier this year, in which he hinted at something exciting coming up:

Speaking on an episode of Kevin Nealon's web series titled Hiking With Kevin, Courteney Cox (our Monica) said: "The exciting thing is that we're all going to get together for the first time, in a room, and actually talk about the show.
"We're going to have the best time."
She explained that all the main cast have only met up twice since the show ended.
She added: "It's going to be great. We really haven't all done that and actually sat there and talked about and reminisced about this incredible experience that we had."
According to Deadline, the return is said to be an unscripted reunion special (think of when The Inbetweeners did it).
Apparently, the cast have reached an agreement in principle with Warner Bros. TV to convene for what is expected to be an hour-long special.
Each of the six actors will be paid in the region of $3-$4 million for appearing in the special. This equates to around £2.3m-£3m... or between £38,000-£50,000 PER MINUTE.
The special is said to also be involving Friends co-creators and executive producers Marta Kauffman and David Crane.
