Friends reunion special to begin filming this week

The cast of Friends are finally reuniting on-screen as part of a reunion special from HBO Max, 17 years after the NBC sitcom’s series finale.

The main cast of Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, and Courtney Cox are all confirmed to appear in what promises to be an unmissable event for every Friends fan around the globe. According to Deadline, filming begins on the special next week with the crew heading to Los Angeles.


Schwimmer recently revealed to BBC talk show host Graham Norton that while the show is unscripted and they will not necessarily be in character, he teased, that “there is one section of it that I don’t want to give away, but we all read something.”


The Friends reunion is scheduled to film the week of April 5 on the sitcom’s Warner Bros. soundstage Stage 24 in Burbank. The six leads will be joined by the show’s creators, Marta Kauffman and David Crane.
