    Few viewers tuned in as the show aired on NBC, and some watched it via DVD box sets, cable runs, and for nowadays, streaming platforms. The show was so much loved by the fans that they wanted a reunion of the cast. HBO Max announced in February 2020 after years of speculation and demand for a reunion that the members of six main cast would film an unscripted special that would drop in May 2020. However, the reunion got delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic, and it eventually premiered in May 2021.

    For the reunion special, the core cast Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, and Matt LeBlanc returned to the original sound stage, that is Stage 24 of the Warner Bros. Studio. In this studio, almost the entire show was filmed. In the special, the former costars read lines from old scripts. Also, they played a famous trivia game from season 4’s episode “The One With the Embryos”. This game enjoyed visits from past guest stars such as James Michael Tyler, Elliott Gould, Tom Selleck, Maggie Wheeler, Christina Pickles, and Thomas Lennon.

    Even some of the megastars also joined the reunion special to express their ultimate love for the show such as David Beckham, Lady Gaga, Kit Harington, and more. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lisa said, “It was really thrilling, a little intimidating, and then thrilling because they like FRIENDS so much.” Even though fans would be thrilled to see them again, they made it quite clear that this reunion will be a one-time thing only. During the reunion, Courteney explained, “This will really make me cry but this will be the last time that we’re ever asked about the show as a group, that we will do this. We’re not gonna do this again in 15 more years.”

    In the reunion and even earlier also, Lisa also shot down the idea of going through the lives of their characters again. She said, “That’s all up to creators Marta and David, and I once heard them say, and I completely agree that they ended the show very nicely, everyone’s lives are very nice. They would have to unravel all those good things in order for there to be stories.” She also admitted, “I don’t want anyone’s happy ending unraveled.”
