It's been 17 years since the finale of Friends aired and, ever since, fans have been crying out for a reunion of the original cast. The folks at HBO have finally granted the wish of Friends fanatics, and there's a special inbound on Thursday May 27 - and we have all the info you need on how to watch the Friends reunion special.
What is the Friends reunion?
The Friends reunion is not a new episode of the show, but rather a gathering of the original cast members to reminisce on their time on set and the 10-year run of the show.
All six of the main cast - Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer - are back, and they'll visit the old set and take part in Friends-themed quizzes and interviews, in an unscripted celebration of the show's original run.
The special was directed by Ben Winston, and original creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman were involved in the production of it.
Who else is involved in the Friends reunion?
James Corden will host a sit-down interview with the cast, while the trailer for the special teased appearances by supporting cast members Tom Selleck and Maggie Wheeler.
The rest of the cast appears a bit eclectic. We like David Beckham as much as the next guy, but what exactly he's doing in a Friends reunion is beyond us. He'll be joined by stars like Reese Witherspoon, Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber.
