Robert: “Friends” reunion delayed.. again
They should call this special “The One that Kept Playing with Our Emotions.”
The one-off gathering of the 6 stars of Friends was suppose to begin filming at some point this month, but has now been pushed to a yet-to-be determined date due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We haven’t all been in the same room in front of people — I mean, we have privately once many years ago but that’s it. The whole point of this is to be in the same room. That hasn’t changed. And HBO Max is being phenomenally patient and understanding,” actress Lisa Kudrow said.
The Friends reunin special was officially given the go ahead in February, with the hope of it being filmed and ready to go by the time HBO’s streaming service, HBO MAX, debuted in May.
After the pandemic hit, production was halted and the release date delayed.. over and over and over again.
