A “Special” announced in February, in which the actors from the cult series “Friends” should meet again after 15 years, has been postponed again due to the corona pandemic.
“That’s very sad,” said “Friends” star Jennifer Aniston (51) on Friday (local time) in an interview with the film portal “Deadline.com”. Under these circumstances it is just too risky for everyone to appear in front of an audience, the actress emphasized.
Aniston put the fans off for a later date. With the postponement, they would now have more time to make the show “even more exciting and fun”. The new edition should originally be seen in May on the streaming service HBO Max.
According to the announcement by the production company WarnerMedia in February, Aniston will play the “Special” with her colleagues Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer without a fixed script. The sequel is to be shot in the same studio as the original, on Stage 24 in the Californian city of Burbank.
The 90s hit “Friends” followed the life of a group of young friends in New York. The series about Rachel, Ross, Chandler, Monica, Joey and Phoebe started in 1994 in the USA and ran until 2004. The actors later became highly paid stars, especially Aniston.
