When is the Friends reunion?
Friends: The Reunion, which is also being called “The One Where They Get Back Together,” will air on HBO’s recently-launched streaming service, HBO Max, on Thursday, May 27. The special will be available to stream on HBO Max starting at 12 a.m. PST and 3 a.m. EST and is expected to be about two hours long.
What is the Friends reunion?
So glad you asked! The Friends reunion stars the show’s original cast members—Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), Matthew Perry (Chandler), Matt LeBlanc (Joey), and David Schwimmer (Ross)—and was executive produced by the beloved series’ co-creators Kevin S. Bright, Marta Kauffman, and David Crane.
During the unscripted reunion—it’s sadly not a new episode of Friends—the cast and real-life pals will revisit some of the show’s iconic sets, reminisce about filming, participate in table reads and re-enactments of past Friends episodes, and share behind-the-scenes footage from the original series.
The two-hour program will be hosted by James Corden and additionally feature a star-studded guest list that includes David Beckham, Justin Bieber, Cindy Crawford, Lady Gaga, Mindy Kaling, and Reese Witherspoon, just to name a few.
How do I watch the Friends reunion?
Fans can stream the reunion online or on a smart TV using the HBO Max app. The service costs $14.99 per month and users can cancel their subscription at any time. You can also watch all 10 seasons of Friends on HBO Max as well as other popular throwback series including The Big Bang Theory, The Nanny, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Gossip Girl, and The West Wing. And, if you’re looking for something new to watch, HBO Max additionally offers some much-talked-about new shows including Mare of Easttown, The Undoing, The Flight Attendant, Euphoria, and more.
