From the opening to the audience, here’s how the Friends reunion came together

“Will there be a Friends reunion?” has been a recurring question for years, but in 2019, as the series marked its 25th anniversary, the idea became more than just wishful thinking. Executive producers David Crane, Kevin Bright, and Marta Kauffman finally made it happen with a nearly two-hour HBO Max special filled with interviews, guest stars, table reads, and nostalgic moments.

The reunion, which brought together Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, was a highly emotional event. It was only the second time all six stars had been in the same room since the show ended in 2004. The special gave fans an inside look at how it all came together, including the reconstruction of iconic sets like Chandler and Joey’s apartment and Central Perk.

Originally scheduled to shoot in March 2020, the reunion had to adapt due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Sets were rebuilt, props were sourced from various sources, and famous fans like David Beckham and BTS shared their love for the show. The magic of the reunion’s first moments, with the cast entering the stage one by one, was carefully orchestrated to capture their genuine reactions.

Getting a seat in the studio audience was a stroke of luck, as audience members were only informed of the event the day before to prevent leaks. Despite the challenges, the Friends reunion was a nostalgic and heartwarming event that delighted fans and cast members alike.
