Will Friends: The Reunion be on Netflix? Here’s where to watch the 2021 special. Which streaming services is it on?

Although it could very well have been called “The One We’ve All Been Waiting For”, it’s safe to say that “The One Where They Get Back Together” works just as well. After all, it’s exactly what is says on the tin.

David Crane and Marta Kauffman’s beloved Friends is perhaps the most iconic sitcom of all time, let alone the nineties. It began airing on NBC back in 1994 and audiences mourned its absence in the wake of the finale in 2004.

Across 10 seasons, fans become undoubtedly close with the tight-knit circle of mates living in Manhattan. It’s hardly difficult to understand why many always held out hopes of seeing the gang back together again.

Fortunately, it was announced that Warner Bros. Television was developing a reunion of sorts back in November 2019.

Now, the wait is over. But, will Friends: The Reunion be on Netflix?

Will Friends: The Reunion be on Netflix? Where to watch

  • No, Friends: The Reunion will not be streaming on Netflix. However, the special is available to watch on HBO Max from Thursday, May 27th 2021 in the US.

Over in the UK, it is available to stream on NOW.

HBO Max is unavailable in the UK, but in the US subscription begins at $14.99 a month. There is no option to opt for a free trial, but you have the option of cancelling your subscription anytime.

It’s sure to be an absolute blast for fans, and a wealth of exciting guest stars were been lined up for appearances. These include such famous faces as Lady Gaga, David Beckham, Kit Harington, Justin Bieber, BTS, Reese Witherspoon, James Corden, Cara Delevingne, Mindy Kaling, and more.

Is Friends: The Reunion a new episode?

No, Friends: The Reunion is a celebratory special and is not a scripted episode which follows on from the finale.

Phoebe actress Lisa Kudrow addressed this in her interview with The Sunday Times:

“No audience has seen us together since the show was over. We will reminisce, talk about what was going on behind the scenes. It’s not us playing our characters. It’s not an episode. It’s not scripted. It’s six of us coming together for the first time in I don’t know how long.”

Essentially, audiences can expect to kick back with the central cast and hear their insight into the making of the show. It is a discussion of their time working on the project, with the crew swapping stories. Then, of course, there are the guest stars to inject an extra dose of excitement into the mix.
