Friends Reunion Special Coming to HBO Max
With the release of the HBO’s new HBO Max streaming service coming soon they needed something big, something huge and they found it! The iconic TV series Friends will stream on the service at launch! That’s right we can watch all 10 magical seasons of the cult NBC classic and not only that but they are doing a reunion special where you get to see the beloved cast that played Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey, and Phoebe! Original series stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer will all return to the iconic sitcom’s original soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank for a celebration of the beloved series!
If you were hoping for a short episode series or a movie that will not be what this is this will be an unscripted cast reunion special! The returning cast will all serve as executive producers on this special, and Ben Winston will direct.
HBO Max’s Kevin Reilly said,
“Guess you could call this ‘the one where they all got back together’ — we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courtney, Matt, Lisa, and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire Friends library. 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.”
It’s been 15 years since our 6 friends graced the small screen so any reunion will be a great reunion for us die-hard Friends fans! Last year for the 25th Anniversary of the show they released a handful of shows on the big screen at select movie theaters and from then they knew that the Friends hype has not dyed down!
Don’t be shocked to see a bigger reunion if this goes big! With the success of shows like Girl Meets World, Fuller House, and the Connors it shows that old is new again and people love Nostalgia!
HBO Max hits your device in May and now we have even more of a reason to be excited!
