WHY WAS FRIENDS REUNION DELAYED?

HBO Max streaming service, which was launched on May 27, was supposed to kick-start with Friends reunion special but got delayed due to the novel coronavirus. Robert Greenblatt, chairman of WarnerMedia Entertainment TN, had said that the reunion will most likely be filmed by the end of summer, which didn’t happen.

Friends, starring Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry, went off-air in 2004 after running successfully for 10 years. The show is still popular on OTT platforms and fans are eagerly waiting for their reunion.

His co-star David Schwimmer had said in July that they were hoping to begin filming but things had been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Schwimmer, who played Ross Geller on the beloved sitcom, had told Jimmy Fallon that they had to “wait until it’s safe.”

A Live Audience For The Special

Friends co-creator Marta Kaufman told Entertainment Tonight when the reunion was first delayed last spring–
“This is a show that is not scripted, but this is the way the show works. We are going to need a live audience. Even if we socially distance that live audience, it really is a huge part of what ‘Friends’ is. We cannot do it without them.”

The main cast will reunite, revisit the set, have surprises, and share behind-the-scenes footage, but they won’t be portraying their original characters. They’ll simply be appearing as themselves. HBO Max explained in a statement–
“Lastly, in order to avoid any misunderstanding about what this special is, we want to make it very clear that this is not a new, original episode of the series. The cast will be appearing as themselves, not as their beloved characters.”
