After many delays and unknowns, it looks like the Friends reunion is finally happening!

Friends star Matthew Perry confirmed the news on his Twitter page, revealing that filming is set to begin in March 2021.

"Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March. Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that's the way I like it!"

While many fans might be expecting them to continue their character's storylines, the reunion will instead be a retrospective special that will allow the cast to look back at the show's biggest moments.

Fans have long been awaiting the special reunion episode, which was originally set to bring the cast together to celebrate the show's big move from Netflix to HBO Max. The episode was originally going to be released when the new streaming service was launched back in May 2020. However, due to COVID-19, they had to reschedule the episode's filming several times to make sure it was safe enough to record.

This still hasn't stopped the cast from hanging out and being together in the middle of the pandemic. Co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow got together for a special sketch during the 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards back in September where they pretended to be living together for the time being.

Along with the original cast getting together, a special host will also be joining in on the fun. There's no word if there will still be an audience for the special taping.
