The highly anticipated first look of the Friends Renuion is here, along with a wild list of guest players including Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Kit Harington. The trailer only gives us a glimpse of the casts back, but our inner 90’s kid is screaming with anticipatory joy. Friends: The Reunion also has a premiere date now! Are you willing to take a guess? It’s much sooner than you might expect: May 27, which is obviously a Thursday.

Other guest appearances for the special will include: BTS, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Elliott Gould, Larry Hankin, Mindy Kaling, Thomas Lennon, Christina Pickles, Tom Selleck, James Michael Tyler, Maggie Wheeler, Reese Witherspoon and Malala Yousafzai. The special stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer. The original Friends return to the iconic comedy’s original soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank for a real-life unscripted celebration of the beloved show.

Ben Winston directed the special and executive produced along with Friendsexecutive producers Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman and David Crane. Friends premiered in 1994 and ran for 10 seasons on NBC. The show remains one of the most popular shows in the world. Friends exploded (once again) on streaming when its 236 episodes debuted on Netflix in 2015, earning a new generation of fans. Friends left Netflix in 2019 and shifted to WarnerMedia’s HBO Max in 2020. Paving the way for the special on May 27th. (squeals)
