Fans have feared that the televised reconciliation may be cancelled for good with the continued delays, but Lisa Kudrow, who plays Phoebe in the beloved sitcom, has revealed that filming has already started.
While she's yet to go on set with her co-stars, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, Lisa has cracked on with a little piece of footage of her own.
Speaking on Rob Lowe's podcast Literally! With Rob Lowe, she explained: "There's different facets to it, and we already shot packages of things.
"I pre-shot something already so we're definitely doing it, because I already shot a little something."
However, for those hoping this reunion show will see a reboot of the classic 90's comedy, then we have bad news for you.
Lisa has confirmed that the actors will not be playing the parts we know and love so well.
"It's not like a scripted thing, we're not portraying our characters," she told Rob.
"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. I think it'll be great."
The reunion was initially announced in February 2020 to air on HBO Max, but was delayed due to the rapid spread of Covid-19 in the States.
The cast were keen to film the show in front of a live audience, and were prepared to delay the reunion until it was safe to do so.
In November 2020, Matthew Perry, who plays Chandler, announced on Twitter that the special was scheduled to begin filming in early 2021. "Friends reunion being scheduled for the beginning of March," the actor wrote on social media. "Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that's the way I like it!"
