For the longest time, Friends fans might've felt like it wasn't their day, their week, their month, or even their year, as the promised cast reunion got pushed back and back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
But now, finally, it's actually happening, with US streaming platform HBO Max dropping a funny and moving first look at the Friends reunion special.
The trailer sees Matt LeBlanc (Joey), Matthew Perry (Chandler), David Schwimmer (Ross), Courteney Cox (Monica), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel) and Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe) back together 17 years after the show ended – yes, you are old – and reminiscing about their time together on the smash-hit sitcom.
The preview also hints at a few special treats to come – including special appearances from Friends guest stars like Tom Selleck (Monica's boyfriend Richard) and Maggie Wheeler (Chandler's on-off girlfriend Janice), and the cast reprising their old characters as they perform a table read of old scripts.
