'Friends' Episodes Will Begin Streaming on HBO Max in May


Your “Friends” will be there for you soon.

Episodes of the beloved sitcom comedy will be available for streaming on May 27 when HBO Max officially launches, according to the press release.

The service hopes that it’ll fill the void as fans await the highly-anticipated cast reunion, which they revealed will be released at a later date.

After months of negotiations, Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courtney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), David Schwimmer (Ross), Matthew Perry (Chandler), and Matt LeBlanc (Joey) agreed on a deal that would bring them all back to the same room for the first time since the series ended its run in 2004.

However, dreams were crushed when the coronavirus pandemic shut down production on all shows and films including the reunion. It has been postponed until further notice.

The reunion comes after 15 years and 9 months since the gang was last together when the series went off the air in 2004.

The cast was set to return to the comedy’s original soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. Studios lot to tape the episode.

While the reunion is everything fans have been hoping for, the cast couldn’t contain their excitement after the hour-long reunion special was confirmed.

“So the exciting thing is that we're all going to get together for the first time, in a room, and actually talk about the show, and it's going to be on HBO Max, and I'm so excited,” Courtney Cox told comedian Kevin Nealon on his “Hiking with Kevin” YouTube series, reported E!. “We're going to have the best time. It's going to be great.”

Cox then emphasized how rare the moment will be since all six stars of the iconic series have never gathered in a room to discuss their time together throughout the show’s ten seasons.

"But we really haven't all done that and actually sat there and talked about and reminisced about this incredible experience that we had,” she added. “It's gonna be fantastic."
