After over a year of anticipation, Friends: The Reunion is finally coming to HBO Max. The stars of the beloved 90s sitcom will join forces in the reunion special known by the cheeky title “The One Where They Get Back Together”, but what can we expect once it finally airs?
The cryptic teaser for Friends: The Reunion shows its cast walking towards the iconic Stage 24, without revealing too much about the plot. Previous reports suggest that this special won’t be the continuation of the storyline, but simply a “real-life unscripted celebration” of its legacy.
Official Release Date
Friends: The Reunion was expected to be released with the launch of HBO Max on May 27th, 2020 but COVID-19 halted those plans. Filming was postponed time and time again, and the reunion special is now set to premiere exactly one year later—on May 27th, 2021.
Cast & Stars
All six stars of the original show—Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer—will return in the reunion special. The cast will also include some of the past guest stars, including Tom Selleck, Reese Witherspoon, and Maggie Wheeler. David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, Lady Gaga, Mindy Kaling, and many more A-listers are expected to make a cameo.
