'Friends' reunion special delayed

GDN Online Desk

A reunion special of the much-awaited Friends TV series has been delayed, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Filming of the show, which was scheduled to begin next week, has now been pushed to May at the earliest.

Each of the show's main stars - Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer - were in talks to return, with series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman.

The deals were finalised and the special was officially announced in late February, confirming the cast will reunite for an, 'untitled unscripted special'.

Slated to be filmed on Stage 24 of the Warner Bros Studio lot in Burbank, where the original series was filmed, the special was supposed to help kick off the HBO Max streaming service when it launches in mid-May.

HBO Max will also carry all 236 episodes of the original sitcom's iconic 10-season run.
