While there’s still a weeks until we see our favourite Friends and Will & Grace stars reunited for a television special, the wonders of social media has landed us with a lovely entrée of what’s to come.

James Burrows is a veteran Los Angeles based director who, in celebration of his 1000th episode of television, rounded up the cast members of many of the iconic programs has put his stamp on, also including The Big Bang Theory, and Mike & Molly.

Producing the reunion for NBC was Will & Grace’s Sean Hayes, who shared a selfie with Eric McCormack and Megan Mullally on Instagram overnight. Devastatingly, their co-star Debra Messing missed the event due to the East Coast American blizzard.

Also pictured together were some of our favourite Friends – Matt Le Blanc, Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and David Schwimmer, alongside The Big Bang Theory cast members Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Simon Helberg.

Like Messing, Matthew Perry was also absent from the event, but made a pre-taped message from London where he is currently in rehearsals for The End of Longing, set to open at the Playhouse Theatre in February.

Take a look at the images below:
