It’s the one where Chandler finished his book.

Matthew Perry, 52, announced on Tuesday that he has finished his memoir via an Instagram post showing a stack of typed-out pages.

The caption read, “My ego doesn’t like that I have to stop writing about myself. But the book is now done. So that’s that. ”

The “Friends” actor revealed in February that he was working on a memoir – “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing” – and shared a snapshot of the cover. The publisher, Macmillan division Flatiron Books, said Perry would be detailing some behind-the-scenes stories from the NBC sitcom and his struggle with addiction using his “trademark humor.”

Perry did stints in rehab in 1997 and 2001. In a 2016 interview with BBC Radio 2, he said he didn’t remember three years of “Friends,” saying he was a “little out of it” for Seasons 3 through 6 of the iconic show.

Perry’s memoir will also be discussing behind-the-scenes stories from the “Friends” set.

In 2021, on HBO Max’s “Friends: The Reunion,” Perry opened up about his struggles with addiction and the pressure to be funny.

“To me, I felt like I was going to die if they didn’t laugh,” he said. “If I didn’t get the laugh I was supposed to get, I would freak out.”

In a news release last year, Flatiron Book’s Megan Lynch said, “We need humor, we need catharsis, and we need to agree on something – and Matthew’s extraordinary story, told in his inimitable voice, is that thing. Matthew’s book has unrivaled potential to bring people together, which feels especially galvanizing right now, a time of isolation and division. ”

Fans could not agree more, as one person commented, “Could I BE anymore excited for this?”

Perry’s memoir is currently set to be released on Nov. 1, 2022.
