American actor David Schwimmer recently revealed some new details regarding the upcoming “Friends” reunion, while he finally shared when the special movie will be shot.
According to People magazine, Schwimmer, who played Ross Gellar in the hit sitcom, confirmed in an interview on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy on Wednesday that the upcoming HBO Max show, which will bring the main cast back together, will be recorded soon.
Speaking of it, Schwimmer said, “It’s happening. Actually, in just a little month, I’m going to Los Angeles.”
Schwimmer added, “Finally, I mean, we’ve come up with a way to shoot it safely and there’s going to be a part of it that we photographed outside because, you know, it’s for safety protocols.”
Then the conversation turned to who’s hosting the special and who’s not when he asked Andy Cohen if Ellen DeGeneres had booked into the gig.
However, Schwimmer closed the possibility of DeGeneres participating, then explained to Cohen that he was not sure if he could reveal who was hosting the private reunion. “I can tell you it’s not Eileen, and it’s not Billy Crystal.” The actor said, “I can tell you who isn’t, but that will probably take some time.”
The sitcom was first announced in February 2020 by HBO Max and was scheduled to premier in May, but has been postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“Unfortunately, it’s so sad that we had to move it again. It was, ‘How do we do this with live audiences?’ That’s not a safe time. Period. That’s the whole point. It’s not a safe time to do it,” Aniston told Deadline in August. .
She added, “It would be amazing. I chose to see it because the cup is half full and it is postponed. Look, we are not going anywhere. You will never throw out friends, sorry. You guys are stuck with us for life, guys.”
Kudrow, who played the eclectic Phoebe Buffay in the series, revealed in January that she and her co-stars had already filmed some scenes for the reunion.
“There are different sides to it, and we’ve actually filmed bunches of things,” she said on Literally! With the Rob Lowe podcast.
Kudrow also made it clear that the cast would not be replaying the friends’ famous personalities, but rather would be speaking on their own. She said, “It’s not a reboot. It’s not a written thing, we don’t portray our characters. We get together, which doesn’t happen often and has never happened in front of other people since 2004 when we stopped.”
The American sitcom has been touted as one of the most popular series and is still the talk of the town among fans, who are eagerly waiting to see their favorite stars together.
Friends originally aired for 10 seasons from 1994 through 2004 and starred Schwimmer, Aniston, Codrow, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry.
The beloved sitcom followed the story of six friends in their 20’s and 30’s who live in Manhattan, New York City.
