The One Where They Have a Reunion


Written by Abigail Worker, A & E writer

For all of the Friends fans waiting for this reunion all I have to say is, “Could we BE anymore excited!” The Friends cast, Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), David Schwimmer (Ross), Matt LeBlanc (Joey), and Matthew Perry (Chandler) are all finally coming back together for their 25th anniversary. The show will be airing on HBO Max, and the reunion should take place sometime in March according to Matthew Perry’s tweet. “Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March. Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that’s the way I like it!” (@MatthewPerry). Due to Covid the show did end up being pushed into March, but Jennifer revealed on a phone interview with Deadline that she is even more thrilled with the fact since they then have more time to make the reunion even more fun and exciting. Unfortunately, the cast won’t be portraying the show’s original characters, but the cast will revisit the set, have surprises, and even share behind-the-scenes footage. The cast will be going back to the original studio where the show was filmed; Stage 10 Warner Bros-studio lot in Burbank, the same stage where the show was filmed for 10 years. The crew has been going back and forth on the fact of whether or not there will be an audience for the show due to the pandemic. Jennifer states in a phone interview with Deadline that, “Unfortunately it’s very sad to move it again, it was, ‘How do we do this with live audiences?’ This is not a safe time. Period. That’s the bottom line. It’s not a safe time to do it,” Aniston said. Luckily the special will be airing since Kudrow already revealed that she has already shot something for it, so the special will definitely be happening but with an audience is unknown. For so many years people have been waiting for this reunion, and it is finally happening! While you wait for the special to air you can get ready by watching the sitcom show on HBO Max so you’re prepared for anything. So get your blankets, socks, pillows, blankets, and sweatshirts because soon enough we’ll be watching;
