New Delhi: The American sitcom was touted as one of the most popular ones and is still the talk of the town among fans, who are eagerly waiting to see their favourite stars back together. The beloved sitcom followed the story of six friends in their 20s and 30s who live in Manhattan, New York City.
After months (or, at this point, years) of rumours and expectations, the 'Friends' reunion of our dreams is going to become a reality. The cast was set to gather for a special on HBO's streaming service HBO Max, to honour the iconic sitcom's 25th anniversary.
There have been some bumps in the road to production as the entertainment world is on pause during the coronavirus pandemic.
When the BBC talk show host Graham Norton asked Schwimmer about his “pressing engagement that the world has been waiting for,” the actor, who played Ross Geller, shared, “I will be getting on a plane soon and shooting for Friends Reunion next week. I am going to see everyone next week for the first time in many years.”
Schwimmer also confirmed that the episode will be unscripted and everyone including Matthew Perry, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, and Matt LeBlanc, will be themselves and won’t be playing their characters. But, the 54-year-old actor also hinted at a surprise segment of the special episode.
It’s likely most fans of Friends are well aware that there's a reunion coming up. However, what many might not have paid full attention to is what exactly that reunion is going to be. While revivals of classic TV shows - whether they be specials, movies, or full seasons - are very common right now, the Friends reunion special on HBO Max will simply see the main cast reunite and reminisce about the show.
The Friends Reunion special was supposed to launch the HBO Max streaming service in May 2020, but it couldn’t be filmed because of the outbreak of coronavirus that shut down production in Hollywood in March 2020.
The popular series Friends went on air in 1994 and ran for a successful 10 years. Its last episode was aired in 2004. There is currently still no confirmed release date for the reunion episode, but when it finally arrives it will stream on HBO Max in the US.
