HBO announce reunion special for ’90s hit show ‘Friends’

One of the most popular TV-series of all time, Friends, is returning for a one-off, unscripted special with original cast members. Rumours about the return of the show have been up in the air since last year October when Jennifer Aniston posted a picture of herself and all of the former cast members.

This week, HBO – who own rights to the entire ‘Friends’ catalogue- confirmed the special will air on their new HBO Max streaming service which only launches in May.

We are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire Friends library.” Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer HBO

The return of Friends won’t be a movie or reboot of the show but rather an hour-long, unscripted, once-off reunion special which will take place on the original Friends soundstage, Stage24. There is no official premiere date for the reunion special just yet.
