All of the original cast members of Friends are set to return to our screens in a one-off HBO Special. The group who played Ross, Racheal, Monica, Phoebe, Joey and Chandler are getting back together to relive some of their most famous moments and talk about life during filming. Find out how to watch and stream the Friends Reunion here.
Friends Reunion TV Preview
When it aired in the 1990s and 2000s, it’s easy to say that Friends was one of the most popular TV series on the planet – a true global hit that is still watched by millions today. Fans have been screaming out for new episodes since it all ended in 2004.
The show gave us unforgettable storylines involving Ross and Racheal’s ‘break’, Joey’s acting on Days of Our Lives along with Phoebe’s ‘Smelly Cat’! And who could forget the one where Monica woke up next to Chandler?
David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry and Matt Le Blanc gave us plenty of laughs over the years, playing six young New Yorkers living in Manhatten. Now, they are coming back together for an unscripted celebration of everything Friends. Think of it as a best of, including on set interviews and a whole heap of celebrity cameos.
This two-hour, HBO Max reunion special takes the crew back to Stage 24 studios where they filmed the original series. It’s as heartwarming as it is funny, with the group picking out their favourite moments from 236 episodes. There are also a few non-scripted sketches that give us a glimpse of what Friends would be like now, with all the characters looking a little older!
Special guests on the Reunion include Lady Gaga, David Beckham, Justin Bieber, Tom Selleck, Cindy Crawford, Kit Harington, James Cordon and Reese Witherspoon. Ben Winston directs with original Friends producers, Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman, and David Crane.
So, get ready to take another trip to Central Perk, Chandler & Joey’s place, Monica’s apartment – all whilst seeing some very familiar faces along the way.

Streaming TV Devices
The following is a list of compatible internet-connected devices for which you can stream the Friends Reunion whether at home or on the go.
For years, Apple TV devices have been an ideal instant streaming solution that does it all. There are two models available – Apple TV HD handles video up to 1080p, while Apple TV 4K adds full support for 4K, HDR and Dolby Vision. Kayo Sports is great on Apple TV, with flawless 4-way Split View.
A hugely popular low-cost streaming solution, Google’s Chromecast got a make-over in 2020, and now comes in two very different flavours. The basic Chromecast is still available, but the newer Google TV version (which replaces the Ultra) adds a remote control and an on-screen interface.
Foxtel Now Box
Foxtel’s own streaming box is an Android TV device that brings the Foxtel Now experience front and centre in its user interface – making it a natural choice if your preferred way of streaming sports is via the live channels that Foxtel Now offers, with on-demand streaming and live free-to-air channels as well.
Amazon Fire TV Stick
This easy alternative comes in three flavours – a budget Lite model, the standard one, and a 4K version. All of them are simple “plug in and go” stick-shaped devices that work similarly to Google’s newest Chromecast, except these use Amazon’s custom user interface and support Alexa voice control.
Nvidia Shield TV
A powerful Android TV streaming device from one of the world’s leading PC graphics companies comes in the form of a small “tube” with connections at either end, along with a slim backlit remote control. It can easily deal with every streaming app under the sun, including Kayo and Foxtel.
