According to David Schwimmer, who plays Ross Geller in the fan-favorite series, the Friends reunion will have scenes shot outdoors. After being delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, it seems the long-awaited reunion is finally back on track. The actor, who Andy Cohen recently interviewed, revealed that parts of the reunion would be filmed outside due to safety precautions.
The NBC TV series, which continues to remain popular among audiences, ran from 1994 to 2004 for ten seasons. Following the lives of six friends living in Manhattan, the show became an instant hit. It was one of Netflix’s most-watched series, and with its shift to HBO Max, it has become a gold mine for new viewerships.
But, ever since HBO Max announced it would be bringing the cast together again for a reunion, fans have not been able to calm down, anticipating its release. Irrespective of the many delays that have dimmed the hopes of its premiere, cast and crew members have kept reminding fans that the reunion is in the works and that it’ll be a worthful wait.
With a step closer to begin filming, those withering hopes seem to have been renewed. According to ET Canada, who sourced a Radio Andy episode featuring Schwimmer in which he had stated he would be flying to Los Angeles in April to shoot the reunion. Cohen also jokingly prodded at the host of the reunion, to which Schwimmer responded it wouldn’t be Ellen DeGeneres.
Casey Bloys, president of HBO Programming, also had announced before that filming for the reunion would begin sometime in the spring. Hopefully, with Schwimmer starting filming, it won’t be too long before other cast members catch up as well.
With the fame for the original TV series, the reunion would have to stand up to some pretty high standards given how much has changed since its debut.
