Watch the Official Trailer of the 'Friends: The Reunion' HBO Max Special
A glimpse into the cast re-reading their most iconic lines.
Starring the original six, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer are seen re-creating Season 4’s “The One with the Embryos” where Schwimmer reads a series of questions to his fellow cast members about the show. “Rachel wrote Ross a letter and demanded he read it before they got back together. How many pages was that letter?” he asks, referring to Season 4’s “The One With The Jellyfish.” “18 pages!” LeBlanc yells out, followed by Schimmer wanting more out of his response and Aniston blurting out, “Front and back!”
In addition, the special will feature a sit-down interview hosted by James Corden, along with segments where the cast read some of their iconic lines from old scripts. Other stars will also make an appearance, including BTS, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, James Michael Tyler (who played Gunther), Maggie Wheeler (who played Janice), Reese Witherspoon (who played Rachel’s younger sister Jill in Season 6) and more.
Watch the full trailer above. Friends: The Reunion will release on HBO Max on May 27.
ORIGINAL STORY (May 13, 2021): This is not a drill – HBO Max is finally set to release the reunion special of Emmy Award-winning comedy TV show Friends. Originally scheduled to premiere last year, the streaming platform had to push back production due to the ongoing pandemic.

The entire original cast – Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer – will be in the unscripted episode, which was filmed at the series’ original soundstage on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank, California.
In addition, more stars will make an appearance in the special, including BTS, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, David Beckham, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Elliott Gould, Kit Harington, Mindy Kaling, Thomas Lennon, James Michael Tyler (who played Gunther), Maggie Wheeler (who played Janice), Reese Witherspoon (who played Rachel’s younger sister Jill in Season 6) and Malala Yousafzai, among others.
