As announced by HBO, the much-anticipated Friends reunion will broadcast on the 27th of May.
Friends: The Reunion, featuring all the six members of the original cast, was supposed to have been filmed a year ago. But it got delayed due to the global COVID pandemic. Instead, the unscripted one-off special was filmed earlier this year on the same set of the sitcom in Los Angeles.
The trailer of the programme shows the cast walking off in the distance. Additionally, the slowed version of the I’ll Be There For You theme tune in the background. While, before the caption of it reads The one where they get back together.
The reunion will feature all six of the lead cast members. Which includes Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, and Matt Le Blanc.

Other celebrities featured include Kit Harrington, David Beckham, and Malala Yousafzai. Kit Harrington is a Game of Thrones actor who played the role of Jon Snow, While Malala is a Pakistani Nobel Peace Prize winner.
