The official trailer sees the cast getting emotional as they revisit the set of the legendary sitcom and relive some of the show's best episodes.
The official trailer for ‘Friends: The Reunion’ is here, and it sweeps us with a great wave of nostalgia.
The trailer was released by HBO Max on Thursday, May 20, exactly a week before it premieres on the streaming platform.
The trailer sees Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, and Matt LeBlanc returning to the show’s original soundstage in Burbank, California.
This is the first time for the cast to get back to the set together since “Friends” ended nearly 20 years ago.
They looked back at their fun memories together, from the time they first met until the time they became each other's family. The cast also did a table-read of some of the popular episodes in the long-running series like “The One With the Jellyfish” and “The One Where Everybody Finds Out” (where Phoebe’s iconic ‘My eyes! My eyes!’ line came from).
There was a scene of the group playing a 2021 version of the trivia quiz game just like they used to in the episode called “The One with the Embryos”.
The trailer is filled with so many emotions that Aniston even asks for the tissue box, while Cox can not stop her tears from flowing down her cheeks.
“I know you know how big the show is. What you have given so many people is an experience of huge comfort. We felt like we have these friends,” host James Corden said.
'Friends' was a hit sitcom that premiered on NBC on September 22, 1994. The popular show lasted ten seasons and concluded on May 6, 2004.
An unscripted reunion called ‘Friends: The Reunion’ was first announced to be in development on November 12, 2019. It will see the return of all the original cast and crew. The show's co-creators Kevin S. Bright, Marta Kauffman, and David Crane, will serve as executive producers for the reunion.
Aside from the full cast and crew, the upcoming episode will also feature a lineup of celebrity guests like David Beckham, Justin Bieber, Cara Delivigne, Lady Gaga. Celebrities who also appeared on the show will also make a guest appearance at the reunion. This includes Reese Witherspoon, James Michael Tyler, Maggie Wheeler, Elliott Gould, and Tom Selleck, among many others.
‘Friends: The Reunion’ is coming to HBO Max on 27 May 2021. HBO Max does not have a free trial. If you are already subscribed to HBO, you will need to upgrade your existing subscription to include Max. If not, you need to sign up with a paying membership (currently $15 a month) to watch the unscripted reunion.
