Friends fans, rejoice: The cast is getting together for a reunion, Friends: The Reunion, on HBO Max, and it’s due to launch on May 27. A new teaser gives a glimpse of the cast, walking arm-in-arm, but doesn’t reveal too much more about the reunion.

Friends, the enormously popular sitcom, started in 1994 and ran for 10 years. Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer are all returning to discuss their original roles. The Reunion is not a new episode of Friends, but a chance for the original producers and actors to discuss the series.

The Reunion will also have a variety of guests, both actors and notable figures from other fields. The list includes David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lady Gaga, Elliott Gould, Kit Harington, Larry Hankin, Mindy Kaling, Thomas Lennon, Christina Pickles, Tom Selleck, James Michael Tyler, Maggie Wheeler, Reese Witherspoon, and Malala Yousafzai.

The special was first announced in February 2020, but was delayed twice due to concerns from the COVID-19 pandemic.
