So no one told you life was gonna be this way…

The return of ‘Friends’ for a one-off special in HBO Max was initially scheduled to begin shooting in March this year, but was eventually postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. As expected, a lot were disappointed. But that was until the cast surprised their fans with a special update regarding their reunion special through their Instagram account last April.

But due to the ongoing pandemic, the special reunion of “Friends” was delayed again. To tell you, it was supposed to film this year last March with a live audience and the whole original plan was scrapped for the safety of everyone. 

However, Matthew Perry delivered some great news about their highly anticipated special reunion.

You’ve read it right! Perry just teased their fans that our favorite classic gang “have a busy year coming up.”  Honestly, this news alert fans on social media again and it was really heartfelt and touching, which made us feel like crying.


We really can’t wait for this grand celebration! I am betting that you’ve also rewatched Friends a million times but still you can’t stop yourself from laughing with every episode of it. Plus, seeing them all together again will inevitably make our hearts totally happy!
