We have been desperately waiting for the Friends reunion to finally get underway, with the long-anticipated TV programme having suffered numerous delays due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

However, we may finally have some good news as David Schwimmer has finally revealed when the reunion show is expected to start filming.

The cast of the beloved sitcom will be reuniting for a one off special (

Speaking on SiriusXM's Andy Cohen Live radio show on Wednesday, the 54-year-old said he will join former co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry to start filming the reunion in "a little over a month".

"Have you guys shot anywhere?" Andy asked of the upcoming Friends reunion, which is scheduled to be broadcast on the HBO Max streaming service.

"Actually, in a little over a month I'm heading out to LA," David responded. "So, finally, I mean, we figured out a way to film it safely and there's going to be a portion of it that we filmed outside because of, you know, for safety protocols."

The Friends reunion was initially announced in 2019, and was intended to be broadcast for the 25th anniversary since the show was first broadcast.

But those hoping the reunion will be a brand new episode of Friends will be disappointed, as the one-off special was never intended to be a reboot or a continuation of the popular 90's sitcom.

The main cast will reunite, revisit the set, have surprises, and share behind-the-scenes footage, but they won't be portraying their original characters - only appearing as themselves.

Jennifer Aniston, who played Rachel in Friends, has previously described the delays as being beneficial to production.

"It's going to be super. You know what? This has also given us more time to make it even more exciting and more fun than it would have been," she told Deadline.

"So I choose to see it as the glass is half-full that it got postponed. Look, we're not going anywhere. You're never going to get rid of Friends, sorry. You're stuck with us for life guys."

No official air date for the Friends reunion has been confirmed, but we can expect to see it later this year.

We can't wait!
