It was confirmed in February 2020 that Matt Le Blanc, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow and Matthew Perry would reunite for a one-off special of the beloved sitcom.

The show was repeatedly pushed back because of the coronavirus pandemic, however, but Jennifer previously teased that the show would be 'more exciting' because of the delay.

She told Variety: "Unfortunately it’s very sad that we had to move it again. It was, 'How do we do this with live audiences?' This is not a safe time. Period. That’s the bottom line. It’s not a safe time to do it. [But] it’s going to be super. You know what? This has also given us more time to make it even more exciting and more fun than it would have been.

"So I choose to see it as the glass is half-full that it got postponed. Look, we’re not going anywhere. You’re never going to get rid of Friends, sorry. You’re stuck with us for life guys."
