“Friends” is the biggest TV hit until now. No show seems to have taken its place. Fans continue to watch the show despite the fact that it ended more than a decade ago. After a very long break, it is believed that the cast will be back together.
HBO Max had plans to launch the Friends reunion special in May. However, it has been delayed because of the current pandemic. But, the cast is just as excited as us. Each of them feels over the moon to work together on stage and get into character. According to Marta Kauffman, the co-creator of the show, the shooting should start in August and if everything goes well, it would air.
Who Will Be Included?
The reunion is set to include all the major six cast members. It means that you would get to see Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox, and Jennifer Aniston on screen as well as the co-creator David Krane and Kauffman. It will be first time that we will get to see the entire cast of Friends together. The special episode is set to film at Stage 24 in Burbank at Warner Bros Studio. It is the same stage where the sitcom was last filmed about 10 years ago.
The One Where They Get Back Together
The reunion special will be called “The One Where They Get Back Together” according to the chief content officer of HBO Max, Kevin Reilly. The chief content officer is just as excited as we are. He has been aware of the show’s development from a very early stage and has had the opportunity to work on the show after many years. Kevin is delighted to see how things will change.
The show aired from 1994 to 2004 and it consisted of about 236 episodes. It is still one of the most popular sitcoms. Friends was also nominated for Emmy Awards 62 times and ended up winning four awards. It even won a Golden Globe after being nominated 10 times. The show has also won People’s Choice awards and Guild awards.
