OMG Central Perk Might Be Opening In Your Neighborhood!

Friends fans everywhere probably had the dream of hanging out on the Central Perk couch surrounded by your fans.

If you didn't dream about this, I guess we are the only ones then but this day dream could actually become a reality.

A real life Central Perk might actually be happening and we are freaking out!

While there's no official proof of a café coming, there is some interesting evidence that points to a potential branded coffee shop in the works.

A court document obtained by The Blast (an entertainment website created by one of TMZ.com's co-founders) shows that earlier this month, Warner Bros. secured a trademark to use the name Central Perk and its logo for "coffee shop and café services; coffee bars; tea bars; snack bars."

As Food & Wine points out, since Warner Bros. already owns the rights to Friends, it seems odd that they would take this extra step toward copyrighting the name 'Central Perk' if something wasn't in the works.

According the The Blast, Warner Bros also requested a trademark to use the name on products like toys, boardgames, and slot machines, but it hasn't yet been approved.

It's also worth noting that in 2016, Warner Bros. blocked a parody café from opening up in Toronto, so maybe they've just been playing the long game here and it really will open up soon.

Could there be a Central Perk cafe coming near you soon?!

We can only hope!
