The long-awaited and much anticipated “Friends” reunion is coming to HBO Max at last.

“Friends: The Reunion” will debut on the WarnerMedia streaming service on May 27.

The event, which brings together stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer was supposed to be a key part of HBO Max’s launch last May, but was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, before you get excited about the possibility of seeing what happened to Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Joey, Monica and Phoebe after the 2004 final episode, keep in mind that this is a reunion, but it’s not a reunion episode.

The stars of the NBC sitcom, which ran for 10 seasons, will return to the show’s original soundstage on the Warner Bros. lot “for a real-life unscripted celebration of the beloved show,” according to HBO Max.

There will also be many special guests including Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Tom Selleck, Reese Witherspoon and Malala Yousafzai, some of whom appeared on the show while others are fans.
