We’ve heard the rumours, held onto the hopeful hints, and even chosen to believe the fake news when it came to speculations around a reunion of the hit 90’s sitcom, Friends. Speculate no more, Capetonians. Not only is Friends back, we have a save-the-date!
The special will air on HBO Max streaming service from May 27, reports BBC. The 15-year-long wait is officially over!
February of 2020 saw the cast’s first set of hints start appearing. A tantalising bread trail we’ve followed for months. Well, get ready for the whole bakery. Here’s everything you need to know about the first show.
- All six cast members are going to be in the special
- There will be other supporting characters as well (here’s looking at you Gunther!). And we thought we’d never get to hear Janice’s vocals again. Music to our ears.
- Some new faces are supposed to make an appearance too, from Justin Bieber to David Beckham and Cara Delevinge.
- The special is not set to be a series or film, but rather an unscripted special.
For Friends fans, it truly does feel like the anticipated return to a long-lost lover. (Yes Ross and Rachel, that was directed at your relationship).
Here’s a sneaky trailer release if you needed solid evidence (not that we could ever be so heartless as to mess with Friends facts).
