How To Watch ‘Friends: The Reunion’ as Soon as It Drops on HBO Max

·1 min read

The calendar may read 2021, but early 2000s nostalgia is in full force: Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are dating again, mom jeans are everywhere, and a new episode of Friends is airing—in this case, a reunion special. The highly anticipated Friends: The Reunion will premiere on HBO Max on Thursday, May 27; the reunion marks nearly 27 years since the show first aired on NBC in September 1994.

After a delay due to COVID-19, the entire cast—Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), Matt LeBlanc (Joey), Matthew Perry (Chandler), and David Schwimmer (Ross)—gathered at Stage 24 on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank.

The cast will not reprise their roles (this is not a reboot!) but instead test their knowledge in a trivia game about the show, revisit old sets rebuilt exclusively for the reunion, re-read original scripts, and sit down in front of a live audience with host James Corden, host from The Late Late Show With James Corden.

So, how can I watch Friends: The Reunion?

Friends: The Reunion will premiere exclusively on HBO’s streaming service, HBO Max, on Thursday, May 27 at 3 a.m. ET / 12 a.m. PT. An HBO Max subscription starts at $14.99.
