Finally, a premiere date for the long-awaited Friends reunion has been set.

We’ll get to see this amazing event on Thursday, May 27, according to HBO Max, and there’s even a short but strangely emotional teaser to go along with the announcement. It’s only behind-the-scenes footage of the cast walking together with a slowed-down version of the theme song, but it’s the most we’ve seen from the special since it was revealed in February 2020.

The episode, which reunites Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, and Matthew Perry in the show’s original soundstage on the Warner Bros studio lot, was expected to be shot in time for HBO Max’s launch in May 2020, but the world had other ideas, and the global pandemic postponed the special for over a year. It was finally shot in April, and we’re just two weeks away from seeing “a real-life unscripted celebration of the beloved show,” as the streaming site describes it.

Friends Reunion

Friends: The Reunion is the name of the celebration, and it will feature a number of special guests. Maggie Wheeler, who played Janice, and Reese Witherspoon, who played one of Rachel’s sisters, are two examples. Gunther’s actor, James Michael Tyler, will be in attendance, as will Monica and Ross’ parents, Christina Pickles and Elliott Gould. Tom Selleck, who played Richard, and Thomas Lennon, who played Joey’s identical hand twin, will also be in attendance. Mr. Heckles himself, Larry Hankin, will be in attendance.


The stars have stated repeatedly that this is not a filmed Friends reunion or something similar. With the assistance of executive producers and show creators Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman, and David Crane, the actors will appear as themselves to share memories and focus on the show’s legacy.

“Nothing is pre-planned. We’re not pretending to be anyone else. We’re all true people, and we’re all ourselves “Schwimmer revealed this to Graham Norton recently. “However, there is one segment where we all read something that I don’t want to give away.”
