The cast of the short-lived, beloved TV show “Freaks and Geeks” reunites for the upcoming Vanity Fair comedy issue.


Judd Apatow and Paul Feig were the creative forces behind the 1999-2000 NBC series, which only ran for 18 episodes but earned a cult following in the subsequent decade, due both to its authentic portrayal of adolescence and the ensemble cast’s rising stardom.

James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Busy Philipps, Martin Starr, and Samm Levine starred as the friends of the Weir siblings, played by Linda Cardellini and John Francis Daley.

In behind-the-scenes video for the shoot, Apatow mentions that it’s the first time that cast had gathered in one room since the show’s cancellation 12 years ago.

“We’re excited, because I don’t think this will ever happen again,” says Apatow. “This will never happen again.”
