'Friends' Reunion Special Officially Confirmed for HBO Max

The Friends reunion special is officially happening!

Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer will reunite for the unscripted special, which will premiere on the upcoming streaming service HBO Max.

The reunion special will premiere on the date that HBO Max debuts, which hasn’t yet been determined, though we know it will be in May 2020. The full series of Friends will also be available to stream on the launch date.

The special will be filmed on Stage 24 on the Warner Bros. Studio Lot in Burbank, Calif, where the show was filmed. Series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman will also be involved.

“Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together — we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa, and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire Friends library,” said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer at HBO Max (via THR). “I became aware of Friends when it was in the very early stages of development and then had the opportunity to work on the series many years later and have delighted in seeing it catch on with viewers generation after generation. It taps into an era when friends — and audiences — gathered together in real time and we think this reunion special will capture that spirit, uniting original and new fans.”
