Friends star Jennifer Aniston delighted fans when she posted on her Instagram a small clip of the much-awaited Friends reunion. It got 21 million plus views!
Streaming on May 27 on HBO Max, the clip for Friends: The Reunion showed the stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer walking with their backs to the camera, as a slower version of the iconic theme played.
The clip ended by saying: "The One Where They All Get Back Together," and announced its streaming date.
Jen captioned the clip: “It's official! The #FriendsReunion premieres May 27th on @HBOMax. Could we BE any more excited?"
Fans have been waiting ages to see the gang all get back together, since the show ended after ten seasons (1994-2004).
Fans of the iconic sitcom will be pleased at the news, given that production for the reunion, which was first announced over a year ago, has been delayed several times because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The special reunion episode will see the stars revisit the set, share behind-the-scenes footage and feature a few surprises for viewers.
In a statement released by HBO: “Lastly, in order to avoid any misunderstanding about what this special is, we want to make it very clear that this is not a new, original episode of the series. The cast will be appearing as themselves, not as their beloved characters."
Schwimmer, who played Ross Gellar, confirmed: "There's nothing scripted. We're not in character, we're all ourselves – the real people. But there is one section of it that I don't want to give it away, but we all read something.”
Fans were given their first glimpse of Monica Gellar’s (played by Courteney Cox) restored apartment, where it's believed the reunion will take place.
Original set designer Greg Grande took to Instagram to share a photo of the perfectly recreated apartment.
"Ssssh, something's happening, deja vu... coming alive once again," he captioned the photo.

Matt LeBlanc (who played Joey Trivianni) headlined a few comedy series such a Joey, Man With A Plan and Episodes.
