Everyone’s favorite group of TV friends are about to finally reunite together on screen for the first time in ages! We’re, of course, referring to the Friends cast who will finally reunite for the long in the works Friends reunion special coming on May 27, 2021!
Set against the soundstage where the show filmed for ten seasons, Stage 24, located on the Warner Bros. Studio lot, the Friends reunion will mark the first time the core cast members will come together again with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer all reuniting for the special.
It’s sure to be one of the most talked about events of the year, but will Netflix subscribers be able to enjoy the special on the service or will they have to look elsewhere to stream the special?
Is the Friends reunion on Netflix?
Unfortunately for Netflix subscribers, the Friends reunion special will not be available to stream on Netflix.
Although Netflix was home to Friends for several years, the series left the service at the stroke of midnight on December 31, 2019, and later moved over to HBO Max which is now the show’s exclusive streaming home.
Originally, HBO Max’s hope was for the Friends reunion special to be filmed and available to stream upon the service’s launch in 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, production on the special was delayed resulting in the special arriving a year later than intended.
As such, the Friends reunion special will instead debut on May 27, 2021, to mark the one-year anniversary of HBO Max’s launch.
Where can I watch the Friends reunion?
As you might have guessed by now, the Friends reunion special will be available to stream exclusively on HBO Max beginning on May 27, 2021, at approximately 3 a.m. ET. Because the special is an HBO Max original, it is not expected the special will be stream on any other streaming service nor is it expected the special will air on broadcast or cable.Next: 50 best Netflix shows to watch right now
