After a long wait triggered by the coronavirus pandemic, the much-anticipated Friends reunion special has finally received a release date and trailer.

Friends: The Reunion will be available on the HBO Max subscription service on May 27th, following the reunion of the sitcom’s original cast last month.

Friends was one of the most successful sitcoms of the 1990s, and it ended in 2004.

Because of reruns and streaming platforms like Netflix, the 10-series show has gained a new wave of viewers.


All six members of the original cast – Matthew Perry (Chandler), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), Matt LeBlanc (Joey) and David Schwimmer (Ross) – are set to take part.

They will feature alongside other supporting stars including Maggie Wheeler (Janice), James Michael Tyler (Gunther), Reese Witherspoon (Jill) and Tom Selleck (Richard), as well as Elliott Gould and Christina Pickles, who played Ross and Monica’s parents, Jack and Judy.

Celebrity guests, including David Beckham, Lady Gaga, BTS, Cara Delevingne, Mindy Kaling, James Corden, Malala Yousafzai and Justin Bieber, are also expected to appear.

A trailer for the reunion, released on Thursday, shows the six actors walking together to a melodic version of the show’s iconic theme-tune of I’ll Be There For You by The Rembrandts.

A caption then teases the special as: “The One Where They Get Back Together”.

Rumours of a reunion originally swirled back in November 2019. It was originally due to air in May 2020 but the Covid-19 pandemic delayed production throughout the year.

Filming for the special eventually took take place last month on the show’s original soundstage on the Warner Bros lot in Burbank, California, in front of a live audience.

Jennifer Aniston shared the trailer on Instagram on Thursday, adding: “It’s official! The #FriendsReunion premieres May 27th on @HBOMax – could we BE any more excited?!”
