At present, the plans regarding the highly anticipated reunion are still being finalized and are subject to change. However, production may start at the beginning of next year, probably why Perry hinted about the reunion coming out in March next year.
So far, Perry was the first to give this latest update regarding the Friends reunion. His co-stars, Matt LeBlanc David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, and Courtney Cox are yet to inform fans of the reunion date.
This Friends reunion special was first scheduled to premiere on May 27 with the launching of HBO Max. However, they had to reschedule because of the coronavirus. With regard to the show’s postponement, its co-creator Marta Kauffman, told ET that she’d rather wait to tape the special with a live studio audience who will take part in the whole experience.
She said in August, “We all want it to happen. We just have to wait until it is safe. 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. Everyone is all in and we are just waiting for that time when it feels connected to bring in a live audience.”
Friends star David Schwimmer also expressed the same thing to ET. He said, “There has always been a hope that a component of that reunion show will have a live audience, which makes the whole thing really tricky. We are obviously not going to risk anyone’s health by doing this.”
Friends fans will just have to wait, after all, patience is a virtue.
