The Friends reunion season must go on
Have you already heard that the Friends reunion is not just possible but is already in its production? If you are as much their fan as I am, you will be thrilled by the following news. Get comfy and enjoy the latest Friends updates.
We had been waiting for 16 years before HBO Max confirmed the reunion television series last February. However, the whole world was destabilized and stood still because of the coronavirus pandemic, and so did the production of Friends Season 11. Nevertheless, its filming has recently resumed, and we are all counting down the days to see Friends reunion picture being released on our screens. So let us find out what we know so far about the highly-anticipated episode.
One of the cast members, Mathew Perry, has tweeted not long ago that filming is likely to start at the beginning of March, although the official date is still unknown. It looks like the cast will have a busy year coming up and that is undoubtedly pumping us up. What is more, Lisa Kudrow revealed the fact that she had already started shooting the new footage. Lisa’s enthusiasm is obvious, especially when every actor’s remuneration is fluctuating between $2.5 million and $3 million. Of course, this is definitely not the main reason for all her excitement and willingness to meet up with her friends, who have not seen each other for ages.
In other news, Friends is no longer available on Netflix, so whopping 236 episodes and a new series will be at our disposal on HBO Max. The cast will be at its full strength of six good old friends: Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), Ross Geller (David Schwimmer), Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), and Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc). Both Friends creators, Marta Kauffman and David Crane have also agreed to replicate their success in the company with the series producer, Kevin Bright. Nothing else sounds more intriguing than the gang united once again! Even the filming location was picked in familiar surroundings, on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank, California.
Unfortunately, the official trailer has not been released yet, but the most curious and impatient viewers can watch a couple of its draft versions on YouTube.
HBO Max has also informed that they should not expect a completely new episode of the classic story. All members of the old Friends crew will be representing themselves and sharing their opinions about the characters and the show itself. Being reunited after such a long break in one space, they will be recollecting the best moments and most awkward scenes, making jokes, laughing, and simply having fun.
By the way, Friends celebrity trio including Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow was able to reunite at Jennifer’s residence in LA right after Emmy Awards 2020. But this time we are expecting the gentlemen, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, and Matt LeBlanc, to join the ladies and have a blast all together! Finally, after months or even years of rumors and anticipation, the Friends reunion of our dreams is going to come true.
