Friends fans won’t have to wait much longer to see Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer reunite. HBO Max will start streaming Friends: Reunion on May 27, WarnerMedia announced Thursday. The unscripted special will see the return of the six stars to the original soundstage where NBC filmed the popular sitcom between 1994 and 2004.
Along with the original cast, the special will feature a long guest list. To name a few of the more notable names, BTS, Kit Harington, Lady Gaga, and Malala Yousafzai will be there. Fans can also expect some of the supporting cast to make an appearance, including Elliott Gould and Christina Pickles (Jack and Judy Geller, respectively), Tom Selleck (Dr Richard Burke) and Reese Witherspoon (Jill Green).
When WarnerMedia first announced On the special at the start of last year, the plan was to film in front of a live audience in March and start broadcasting in May. It was supposed to be one of the first things HBO Max customers could watch on the service when it launched the same month. But then the coronavirus pandemic delayed production twice.
