Lisa Kudrow spills details on ‘Friends’ reunion: ‘I already shot a little something!’


Despite multiple delays, the highly-anticipated “Friends” reunion is still happening.

The special is set to stream on HBO Max and Lisa Kudrow has now revealed the cast has already filmed spots for it, reported People.

"There's different facets to it, and we already shot packages of things,” Kudrow said on Rob Lowe's podcast, “Literally! With Rob Lowe.” 

“I pre-shot something for it already so we're definitely doing it because I already shot a little something.”

The actress, who played Phoebe Buffay during the iconic show’s 10 seasons, also made clear the special is not a reboot.

"It's not, like, a scripted thing, we're not portraying our characters. It's us getting together, which just doesn't happen a lot and has never happened in front of other people since 2004 when we stopped," the 57-year-old added. "I think it'll be great."

The Emmy winner will be joined on the reunion by original co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc, which is scheduled to shoot in “early spring,” according to Kudrow.

Announced last February, the “Friends’ reunion was initially set to premiere as part of the launch of HBO Max on May 27th, 2020.  But due to the COVID pandemic, production was delayed multiple times.

In November, Perry first announced the special had been rescheduled to tape in March 2021.

"Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March," he tweeted. "Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that's the way I like it!"

The reunion will be filmed on Stage 24 at the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank, where the series was initially filmed from 1994 to 2004.

While no premiere date has been announced, fans can still get their “Friends” fix by streaming all episodes of the sitcom on HBO Max.
