Reboots and spin-offs are not a novelty in the television landscape, but this year gave us the rise of another TV format—reunion specials. Cast members of our favorite shows are reuniting to celebrate their legacy, and here are some of the best revivals everyone’s buzzing about.


Fans of Friends spent almost two decades waiting for the old gang to hit up Central Perk again, and that moment finally came. HBO Max’s reunion special sees the cast of the original show reuniting to relieve good old days alongside an impressive ensemble of A-list guest stars.


Nickelodeon gave us one of its defining 2000s show with iCarly, which centers on a group of friends running a popular web show. Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor, and Nathan Kress are set to return to their respective roles in the upcoming revival, and we can’t wait to see if they’ll be able to bring the old magic back.


Revivals of Nickelodeon’s classics will be all the rage this year, and the new version of Rugrats on Paramount+ falls under that umbrella. This animated series features the same lineup of characters, and many of the original voice actors even returned for their roles.
