The trailer for the reunion sees Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer reunite as they visit a remade Friends set and reminisce on their time on the show.

They even play the trivia game hosted by Schwimmer, as once Ross did in ‘The One with the Embryos’ (season 4, episode 12).

The special will also see guest appearances from David Beckham, Lady Gaga, Kit Harington, Justin Bieber, BTS, and others.

  • Friends: The Reunion will likely premiere at approximately 3:01 am ET (12:01 am PT) on Thursday, May 27th, 2021.
