It is happening: "Friends" reunion special being released this month

May 14 2021, 6:25 am

The past 14 months haven’t been our day, our week, our month, or even our year. But at least a nostalgic kick with some popular friends will help right the ship a bit.

Warner Bros. announced on Thursday the long-awaited Friends reunion special will release exclusively on HBO Max on May 27… in the US.

The unscripted special also announced a slew of popular guest stars, including Canadian singer Justin Bieber.

At this time, no timetable for the Canadian release of the show has been announced. In an email with Daily Hive, Madison McCloskey, the publicist for Crave and HBO at Bell Media, says the company has no news to share in regards to Friends: The Reunion coming to Canada. McCloskey says Canadian premier updates will be announced when more details trickle through.

Officially titled “The One Where They Got Back Together,” the reunion special brings back the entire principal Friends cast — Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, and Matt LeBlanc, who will reunite on screen for the first since the series ended in 2004.

Along with the main cast, HBO Max is bringing in a variety of friends for the special. Along with Bieber, guests include David Beckham, BTS, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevigne, Lady Gaga, Elliot Gould, Larry Hankin, Kit Harrington, Mindy Kaling, Thomas Lennon, Christina Pickles, Tom Selleck, James Michael Taylor, Maggie Wheeler, Reese Witherspoon, and Malala Yousaszai.

The special was originally slated to film and premier in 2020 but got pushed back because of you-know-what.

The special was filmed at the sitcom’s original soundstage in Burbank, California, where the entire 236-show series was shot.
