They might've been on a break, but now the Friends cast will finally join forces for the highly-anticipated reunion special.
After being delayed due to the pandemic, the beloved group is going back to where it all began: Stage 24 on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank, California, according to Deadline. Filming is set to begin the week of April 5. It's been 17 years since the iconic New York-based comedy ended, but their antics live on with many a binge session. Needless to say, we're ready to relive those good 'ol days at Central Perk.

What is the Friends reunion special?
This is the first time the cast will gather to recap its 10 seasons. It's an unscripted event, though David Schwimmer (who played neurotic yet lovable Ross Gellar) revealed to the BBC that there is a particularly fun part of the segment where everyone is reading something. Think it's safe to say we'll get to see Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey, and Phoebe 17 years later?
When is the reunion special?
Although filming will begin in April, a release date has yet to be confirmed.
Where can I watch it?
HBO Max! A subscription is $15.
Can I get a sneak peek?
We're going to have to be patient, but in the meantime, they'll be plenty to enjoy: HBO Max will debut Warner Bros. premieres the same day they hit theaters, at no extra cost to subscribers. (We're particularly jazzed about In the Heights coming on June 11.) Additionally, the emotional Tina Turner documentary is currently available.
Meanwhile, the Netflix lineup this April promises a little bit of everything: rom coms, thrillers, and something for the royally-obsessed: a documentary about Princess Diana's infamous 1995 interview with the BBC.
