The “Friends” cast will be there for you come 2021.

Matthew Perry gave fans an update on the highly-anticipated reunion.

After months of delays and holding our breaths for some good news, the reunion has finally gotten the green light and a rescheduled date!

"Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March," he wrote. "Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that's the way I like it!"

The announcement means that the special has been delayed a full year. It was initially supposed to film in March 2020 and premiere on May 27 alongside the launch of HBO Max.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was pushed back to May and then again until August.

It was reportedly set to shoot on August 17th, but due to cases of the novel virus continuing to spike in the Los Angeles area, the taping was once again called off.

The reunion will be filmed on Stage 24 at the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank.

It will be an unscripted special that reunites Perry with Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer.

Series co-creator Marta Kauffman will also return, as will David Krane, her co-creator of the show which ran from 1994 thru 2004.

“Friends” episodes began streaming on HBO Max in May to hold fans over.

In August, Aniston revealed that she was just as disappointed as fans to hear about the decision to postpone, but understood that it was for the best.

“Unfortunately it’s very sad that we had to move it again,” the 51-year-old said. “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.”

Aniston remained positive, explaining that this gives the team “more time” to make the reunion “even more exciting” when it eventually happens.
