The long-awaited reunion of the Friends has finally been announced for the end of May 2021, featuring the original six characters and many famous guests, according to The Guardian and other outlets.
Friends ended their NBC television series in 2004 after 10 years. The show has grown into one of the most popular TV shows, synonymous with ’90s culture.
HBO Max has announced that it will air the single unscripted special on May 27 after numerous delays due to the health crisis. There have been discussions about a reunion for years, with the original cast still teasing fans about whether or not this would happen.
More than 15 famous guests will join the six original cast members – Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry – in cameo appearances. Former cast members Maggie Wheeler (Janice) and Tom Selleck (Richard) will feature in the one-off special.
Other cameos will include Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Game of Thrones actor Kit Harrington.
A teaser video has been posted to social media featuring the original six cast members and a down-tempo version of the iconic Rembrandts’ “I’ll be there for you” theme. The caption read “The one where we see our favorites together”.
Jennifer Aniston, who played Rachel on the show, referred to the show on her social media saying, “Could we be more excited ?!
Courtney Cox, who played Monica Geller, wrote on her Instagram account: “This kind of thing doesn’t happen every year, or even every 10 or 15 years. I feel so lucky to have had the chance to reunite with my friends… and it was better than ever.
The cast will appear as themselves in the one-off special which was filmed earlier this year.
