Directed by Ben Winston and executive produced by original Friends masterminds Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman, and David Crane, the unscripted reunion special filmed on the long-running sitcom's original soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. studio lot in Burbank.

"There's different facets to it, and we already shot packages of things," Kudrow recently told Rob Lowe in a podcast interview. "I pre-shot something for it already so we're definitely doing it because I already shot a little something,"

One of the most popular TV series of all time, Friends debuted in 1994, and garnered massive ratings until its conclusion in 2004.

Friends: The Reunion premieres May 27 on HBO Max. Watch a special preview above.
