That “break?” is finally over,after a long-awaited 17 years, the cast of friends are back on our screens and it seems fans couldn’t be any happier.

So much so it seems HBO Go has crashed, the platform streaming the reunion in the United States.

It’s been 17 years since the six New Yorkers left our screens but fans everywhere are greeting each other with “how you doing”, we are wondering if it could BE any colder and the debate rages on: were Ross and Rachel really on a break?

Variety has reported each actor received US$2.5 million for the special, by the end of Friends in 2004, each cast member was being paid US$1 million per episode.
