NEW YORK: US actress Jennifer Aniston has assured fans after it was revealed that the ‘Friends’ reunion special has been delayed once again by the coronavirus crisis.
The ‘Friends’ reunion special for HBO Max has been delayed once again by the coronavirus crisis. Over the show’s delay, the Murder Mystery actress revealed, “It’s going to be super. You know what? This has also given us more time to make it even more exciting and more fun than it would have been. So I choose to see it as the glass is half-full that it got postponed,” Jennifer Aniston maintained.

The actress was quoted saying, “Look, we are not going anywhere. You are never going to get rid of Friends, sorry. You are stuck with us for life guys.”
After the news broke, Aniston said, “Unfortunately it’s very sad that we had to move it again.” She added, “It’s not a safe time to do it.” Originally planned for March, the unscripted special was set to shoot mid-March. However, when COVID shut down all production, it was pushed to May, timed to coincide with HBO Max’s launch on 27th May. As of today, there is now no set date.
In the special, Aniston will be joined by fellow Friends stars Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry.
