Friends’ Star Matthew Perry said that the much-anticipated Friends Reunion will not start filming for the time being, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March,” he tweeted on Thursday.
“Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that’s the way I like it!”
The special one-off was meant to start filming in August but had to be delayed, and it will bring together the original cast i.e. Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer and Perry himself.
