She teased that there will be way more to the project, and that all co-stars Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and Courteney Cox are all involved.

Lisa was speaking to press about her own Netflix comedy called Space Force, and was quizzed about the reunion.

She stated that all six actors are still very much committed, saying: "It is definitely going to happen, we just keep putting dates in the calendar.

"When we can do it, we will do it.

“[The planning] was pretty far along, but it seemed pretty clear that if people can't gather then we can't do it.”

When the reunion was originally announced months ago, it was planned that the show would coincide with the launch of the US streaming platform HBO Max on May 27.

However, things have been put on hold due to COVID-19 shutting down TV and filmed studios across the world.

Speaking about the Friends reunion and whether or not the episode will be scripted, Lisa said: "There are other things in it.

“There are other things to it; things I shouldn't really talk about because they should be good – but those things can't happen [right now].
