Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer remain friends for 16 years after their iconic television show, Friends, wrapped up. Fans will, once again, see the sextet together in an upcoming special reunion on HBO Max.
Aniston, Cox, and Kudrow often see each other, as seen on their social media pages. They still have the same bond that they once have when the sitcom was on the air for a decade, from 1994 to 2004.
According to E! News, in Aniston and Kudrow's joint appearance on Variety Studio: Actors on Actors in June, Brad Pitt's ex-wife revealed it would be fun if they would be out of quarantine and begin their reunion show. Kudrow, alternatively, added they had no idea about the upcoming special yet, as they, too, might be surprised by what was to come.
However, the two could not deny that they were both excited to do the Friends reunion. Kudrow even said that she could not wait to do it.
Talking about their bond, the three girls seemed to hang out more compared to the boys. Hence, they are still working out to complete the group to share the same bond.
In fact, during her appearance at Vulture Festival in 2015, Kudrow revealed that they were continually trying to set a date. Despite the rarity of their get together, she still found it sweet that they were all exerting efforts to meet up.
Their last complete hangout was last fall, and it was said to be a "culmination of years of effort." Although it took them years to be completed, it was totally worth it for them.
In an interview with The Guardian, Kudrow revealed they all went through something significant together that resulted in a strong bond. They had been together for ten years almost every day and, as they got older, they realized they would never have that with just everybody.
Meanwhile, in his appearance on The Today Show, Schwimmer revealed the format of the much-awaited Friends reunion. The special episode was initially planned for a May release, alongside HBO Max's launch.
However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the show's filming was postponed. As the production is about to ensue, Schwimmer shared that "a lot of creative aspects" of the show are now worked out, Digital Spy noted.
He, also, confirmed that the Friends reunion special would be unscripted, so fans could expect to see many surprising "funny bits throughout." Filming may start in August, but Schwimmer explained they would only start doing it when it is already safe for everyone.
