After months (or, at this point, years) of rumours and anticipation, the reunion of our dreams will come true. To mark the 25th anniversary of the iconic sitcom, HBO’s new streaming service HBO Max, launched on May 27, is slated to gather artists for a special. There is something of an explosion in the way of production as the entertainment world is paralyzed during the coronavirus pandemic; But while we wait for what will be the perfect Instagrams on Jennifer Aniston’s set scene, we’re posting everything we know about the project so far.
Production has started.
Like other shows and movies during the global pandemic, Friends Special is adjusting its filming schedule. And according to Entertainment Weekly, one would expect the series to be able to shoot in late summer 2020. The publication reports that the shooting “has been delayed indefinitely due to an ongoing pandemic.” As Entertainment Weekly reported, the reason for the delay of the special is clear: “As California has become the centre of attraction for coronaviruses in the last month, taking advantage of one person’s reunion no longer seems possible in the immediate future.” Insert crying emoji here.
David Schwimmer previously hoped there would be a reunion in 2020, as he told Entertainment Weekly: “We hope you can call and shoot in August, but the truth is that we will do it when we all determine it is safe to do so.” It’s really a question of when would be the safest time to do it.”
In March it was said that the project was initially filmed in Burbank on March 23-24, but “was delayed at least until May.” Then Bob Greenblatt, President of WarnerMedia Entertainment and Direct-to-Consumer, told Per Variety: “We can fulfil this special opportunity as expected by the end of the summer if the stars align and hopefully we can get back to the production “.
LISA is ready for the KUDROW meeting.
During an interview with The Sunday Times, Lisa Kudrow expressed her enthusiasm for joining the gang again. We will remember, we will talk about what happens behind the scenes. He is not playing our characters.
HBO Max stated in a statement: “Ultimately, to avoid misunderstandings on this particular topic, we would like to clarify that this is not a new and original episode of the series. They featured the cast as themselves. Will. Not as their characters. favourites “.
