Oh. My. God. We are less than a week away from the Friends: The Reunion and though there is still no UK release date that doesn’t mean we can’t get swept up in the frenzy. HBO Max has announced a star-studded cast-list to match the exciting return of our six beloved, coffee-swilling friends. Celebrity guests James Corden, Reese Witherspoon (aka Jill, Rachel’s younger sister), Lady Gaga, and Kit Harington will join stars of the show Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, for the unscripted special. Other confirmed appearances include David Beckham, BTS, Cara Delevingne, Mindy Kaling, Malala Yousafzai and Justin Bieber.
According to Deadline Sky is rumoured to be first in the running to land the UK rights to the HBO Max special (for updates on this follow our Instagram account @The_Hungry_TV_Junkie). To the disappointment of some, the Reunion will not be a new episode. As explained in a statement by HBO Max “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.” Instead, the fab six will revisit the set and share behind-the-scenes footage that is sure to delight fans.
