The long-awaited Friends: The Reunion airs later this month, with a string of special guests including David Beckham and Lady Gaga, as well as some fan-favourite characters coming on the show.

Here at Tyla, we're as ecstatic as you are to see the famous six come together once again. We're hoping for plenty of "How you doin" and "Oh My God!" moments. But by the looks of the trailer, it could get quite emotional too.

The one-off episode, which began filming in August 2020, will be unscripted and the cast won't be in character, to the surprise of some fans. But considering reunion programmes can sometimes have the tendency to spoil the nostalgia, this might be a wise decision and a chance for viewers to get a unique insight into the making of one of the world's most loved sitcoms.

Friends: The Reunion teaser trailer

After a week of suspense, HBO have released another trailer for Friends: The One Where They Get Back Together - and it's everything you could have imagined.

In this trailer, Rachel, Ross, Pheobe, Joey, Monica and Chandler gather on the sofa in Monica's apartment to re-enact the quiz which led to Rachel and Monica losing their apartment to the boys in season 4 during 'The one with the Embryos.'

You can watch the new trailer as well as the first teaser trailer in the video players below.

We've also got Larry Hankin, who played the agoraphobic Mr Heckles, Rachel and Monica's downstairs neighbour, and Joey's identical hand twin from Las Vegas, played by Thomas Lennon.

Of course, Friends wouldn't be complete without Gunther and luckily James Michael Tyler, who plays the Central Perk owner and Rachel's secret admirer, is back with us too. Reese Witherspoon, who appeared on the show as Rachel's spoiled sister, Jill Green, is also appearing.

Courtney Cox, who played Monica, wrote on Instagram: "This kind of thing doesn't happen every year, or even every 10, or 15 years. I feel so blessed to have had a chance to reunite with my Friends ... and it was better than ever." We couldn't agree with her more.

But we would like to know - are the duck and the chick coming?

Friends: The Reunion special guests

An array of special guests hailing from the worlds of TV, music, sport and comedy will also be appearing on the reunion episode.

From the music world, we have Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and even K-Pop boy band BTS appearing.

Footballer David Beckham and comedian James Corden are set to feature as guests, as well as some famous faces from the modelling world: Cindy Crawford and Cara Delevingne.

Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project), and Malala Yousafzai (I Am Malala) will also be joining.

So what's the correlation between all of these people? All we can think is they must all be Friends superfans, whose presence at this reunion shows the huge reach the sitcom had.

As soon as we know any more about watching the reunion in the UK, we'll let you know.
