Lisa Kudrow reveals good news about the upcoming Friends reunion

Entertainment:

We’ve been hearing about the Friends reunion for a looooong time now.

It was originally scheduled to air in early 2020, but thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, it had to be rescheduled multiple times.

Friends fans haven’t had many straightforward answers about when they’ll finally get to see their favourite ’90s sitcom characters reunited — until now.

While the show is going to be a sit-down unscripted reunion, à la Real Housewives, Kudrow says that they’re also pre-shooting a few things for the show.

“I pre-shot something for it already,” Kudrow told Rob Lowe on his podcast Literally! With Rob Lowe. “So we’re definitely doing it because I already shot a little something.”

And as for the actual reunion, they’re going to be filming it in the next few months.

“We’re going to shoot that in the spring,” she revealed, referring to the Northern Hemisphere’s season, which begins in March. “Early spring.”

All six main cast members –– Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer –– are all set to return for the reunion, which is set to film on the original Friends soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in California.

The production was delayed because they wanted to film in front of a live studio audience, just like the original show was. But due to COVID restrictions, that has not yet been allowed to happen.

“We do think there’s a value to having a big, raucous live audience,” said WarnerMedia exec Bob Greenblatt. “We didn’t want to just suddenly do it on a web call with, you know, six squares and people shooting from their kitchens and bedrooms.”

WarnerMedia reportedly paid over US$400 million ($559 million) for the streaming rights to the series, outbidding Netflix. Nielsen had previously reported that the show was one of the most-watched on Netflix, though Netflix does not provide any viewership data.
