Hollywood actor Matthew Perry, best known for his role as ‘Chandler Bing‘ in the hit series ‘Friends‘ announced an update that had been waited for a long time by the fans of the series.
On December 13, Perry took to his verified Twitter account and wrote that the highly anticipated ‘Friends’ cast reunion will be held in March 2021. In his own words:
“Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March. Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that’s the way I like it!”
As fans already knew, his co-star David Schwimmer, who starred on the series as ‘Ross Geller,’ announced the delay of the ‘Friends’ reunion, which had been first scheduled to premiere on May 27 2020, during his appearance on The Tonight Show back in July.
At that time, he said it was supposed to happen in August 2020 and added that maybe they would need to wait longer because of the coronavirus pandemic.
After that, in August, regarding the reunion, the show’s co-creator Marta Kauffman told Entertainment Tonight that the entire cast and crew want it to happen but they just must “wait until it is safe,” and told of what kind of show would it be:
“This is a show that is not scripted, but this is the way the show works, we are going to need a live audience. Even if we socially distance that live audience, it really is a huge part of what Friends is… We cannot do it without them. Everyone is all in and we are just waiting for that time when it feels connected to bring in a live audience.”
Following Perry’s tweet, the other stars of the series, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, and Matt LeBlanc have yet commented on the issue.
In case the special comes to life, it will be aired through HBO Max.
Here is the tweet.
