HBO Max will debut Friends: The Reunion special on May 27th – the one-year anniversary of streaming service’s launch.
Friends stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer will return to the iconic comedy’s original soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros Studio lot in Burbank for a real-life unscripted celebration of the beloved sitcom which is still one of the most watched shows in the world today – despite its final season airing 17 years ago.
Friends: The Reunion will feature a variety of special guests including David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lady Gaga, Elliott Gould, Kit Harington, Larry Hankin, Mindy Kaling, Thomas Lennon, Christina Pickles, Tom Selleck, James Michael Tyler, Maggie Wheeler, Reese Witherspoon and Malala Yousafzai.
Ben Winston directed the special and executive produced along with Friends executive producers Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman, and David Crane.
The special was originally planned for last year, but production was halted as a result of the pandemic.
There is currently no news on when/where the show will air in the UK, where HBO Max isn’t available.
