‘Friends’ reunion won’t be here for us

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Friends reunion won’t be here for us as soon as expected.

Production on the special has been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic that’s brought movie and TV making to a standstill. The special, featuring the entire original Friends cast, was to be part of the May launch of the new HBO Max streaming service. No taping was done before the health crisis hit, the company said.

Plans call for the special, called a “celebration of the beloved show”, to be shot on the same Burbank, California, sound stage where the series was taped.
