Fans of Friends many years have been asking for the return of the series, a movie, a special or almost any thing that will make them calm their nostalgia. Their wishes were heard by HBO, from mid-2019 is preparing a special episode of the series that would bring together its six protagonists. In this way, Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, Courteney Cox and David Schwimmer they would meet one last time to talk about the legacy of Friends and their experiences on the set of the filming of the series.
Everything seemed ideal for the production: its six main characters were going to be, the filming would take place in the mythical studio 24 in Burbank, it was rumored that Ellen DeGeneres would host… but it all has to be truncated with the pandemic of the Covid-19. The confinement due to the risk of contagion has forced to stop the productions of all the world, and also to delay the special Friends that is expected for that next summer.
The pandemic, which interrupted the recording scheduled for the week of 23 to 29 march, will be the premiere of the special until next year, as soon. To HBO had been very difficult to arrange a date with the six protagonists of Friends due to its agendas, and it seems that move has ruined any chance of having the special this year.
Apparently, the shooting has become impossible, at least, until the beginning of the next 2021, so the special would be delayed until summer of next year. So, if you do not re-occur, a catastrophe that prevents the meeting or if a miracle does not that it may be recorded before.
