FRIENDS Update: Reunion Tapes Soon

HBO Max will finally tape the Friends reunion in mid-April. All six cast members will reunite for the streaming special, which had been tapped to help launch HBO Max one year ago.

David Schwimmer confirmed the shooting schedule. He told Andy Cohen on Wednesday, (quote) “In a little over a month I’m heading out to Los Angeles. We figured a way to film it safely. There’s a portion of it outside because of safety protocols.”

The rumored host,Ellen DeGeneres, will not participate. Schwimmer hesitated at identifying her replacement. Then joked, (quote) “It's not Billy Crystal, either. I can tell you who it's not, but that’ll take a while.” (People)
