Friends without a script special reunion on tape next week!

The sources of the deadline have confirmed that the record of the not written Friends The reunion special will be taped in Los Angeles sometime next week. HBO Max has not confirmed. The delay in recording was one of the biggest losses in the Covid-19 lockdown studio. Filming was originally planned for last year.

The highly anticipated special will feature Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc who portrayed the roles of Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Ross, Chandler and Joey. The returning stars of the classic sitcom reportedly made $ 3 to 4 million each for the special.

25 years have passed since its debut, but the 62-time Emmy Award-nominated series has stood the test of time and is still considered one of the best TV series of all time. Thanks to its streaming life, it has also become a pop culture phenomenon and the subject of bidding wars. According to reports, WarnerMedia has successfully regained exclusive streaming rights for all 10 seasons of Friends for a price of $ 425 million. As previously reported, it was Warner Media Entertainment’s chairman, Bob Greenblatt, who was responsible for developing a company Friends Goodbye special.

The special will be filmed on the legendary show’s original sound stage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank, and released on HBO Max.
