Friends, people’s all-time time favourite show is coming for a reunion. Could this mean another season? Will we relive our good old days? Well, that might be too good to be true. What has come into our knowledge is that there is going to be a reunion special episode. An hour-long special event is all we are going to get.
There is no update regarding the release date yet. However, it might air on the day of HBO max special’s release, giving it an illuminated entry in the industry. The rumours of the reunion were going around for a while now, but it was delayed due to negotiation issues. The cast took long to negotiate and finally agreed on 3-4 million dollars for an hour-long reunion special episode.
The special episode is going to air on the launch of HBO max special. It will work as an advertisement for HBO max unique streaming service. Moreover, the whole show will also be exclusively available on HBO max special. The streaming rights of F.R.I.E.N.D.S was taken from Netflix a while ago to make it only available on HBO max special.

Shows original creators Martha Kauffman and David Crain will also be there. Since it is going to be unscripted, the creators might as well take part in the performance. We might even see a glimpse of some other less prominent casts.
