The much-anticipated reunion special - including of course, Courtney Cox who has become a regular visitor to Derry and Donegal thanks to her relationship with Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid - has finally got a release date and trailer after a lengthy delay caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Friends: The Reunion will be available on the HBO Max streaming service from 27 May after the sitcom’s original cast were able to film together last month.

Friends was one of the biggest sitcoms of the 90s and ended in 2004.

The 10-series show has found a new generation of fans thanks to re-runs and streaming services like Netflix.

All six of the original stars have returned - Matthew Perry (Chandler), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), Matt LeBlanc (Joey) and David Schwimmer (Ross).

Celebrity guests, including David Beckham, Lady Gaga, BTS, Cara Delevingne, Mindy Kaling, James Corden, Malala Yousafzai and Justin Bieber, are also expected to appear.

A trailer for the reunion, released on Thursday, shows the six actors walking together to a melodic version of the show’s iconic theme-tune of I’ll Be There For You by The Rembrandts.

A caption then teases the special as: “The One Where They Get Back Together”.
