The long-delayed and much-hyped reunion billed as an “unscripted celebration” of the US smash hit television sitcom ‘Friends reunion’ is officially happening
The streaming platform HBO Max has announced the much-awaited reunion special will premiere on the streaming giant on May 27.
Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schimmer reunited recently to film the special.
Apart from them, HBO Max announced a bunch of guest stars who will be participating in the special. Friends: The Reunion will have appearances from Thomas Lennon, Christina Pickles, Tom Selleck, James Michael Tyler, Maggie Wheeler, Reese Witherspoon, Malala Yousafzai, South Korean juggernaut BTS, Lady Gaga, David Beckham, Justin Bieber, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Elliott Gould, Kit Harington, Larry Hankin, and Mindy Kaling.
A brief trailer for Friends: The Reunion showed the six cast members walking slowly away from the camera with their arms linked together, while the iconic “I’ll Be There For You” theme song plays gently in the background.
Friends cast remains wildly popular even among viewers too young to remember its original run, which ended in 2004.
Directed by Ben Winston and executive produced by Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman, and David Crane, Friends: The Reunion was filmed at the original soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. studio lot in Burbank.
It is expected that one more teaser/trailer for the show will be unveiled before the airing.
