It looks like HBO Max’s Friends reunion special could be picking up production early next year.
There’s no denying that the highly anticipated Friends reunion special was a huge reason why so many were excited about the launch of HBO Max.
Unfortunately, production hit a snag on the planned special earlier this year when, like many projects in the works, the special was forced to delay production start due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Now, it’s looking like all of our favorites will finally be coming together to film the reunion special that never was in 2020.
According to Matthew Perry, the Friends reunion special is officially slated to start shooting sometime in March 2021.
Perry, who played Chandler on the hit sitcom, took to Twitter to share the tentative production start date with fans far and wide on Thursday (November 12).
“Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March,” Perry let slip. “Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that’s the way I like it!”

That Perry and his former co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer are just a few short months away from reuniting to begin production on the highly anticipated reunion special is bound to be cause for excitement for fans all over the world.
HBO Max originally confirmed the news of a Friends reunion special in February 2020, with plans to have the special ready to premiere in time for the streamer’s March 2020 launch date. Unfortunately, plans to debut the special on the new streamer’s launch date were derailed following concerns over the spread of coronavirus.
Production for the special has been pushed back multiple times since it was first delayed earlier this year. And even though fans have found themselves having to wait much longer than expected, it’s still great to hear that everyone’s still on board to come together to bring the special to life in 2021.
Currently, there’s still no word with regards to when we might expect to see the Friends reunion special debut via HBO Max.
