Lisa Kudrow says she shot scenes for 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S' reunion already
Virtual high-fives to you if you are one of the F.R.I.E.N.D.S fans making a silver lining out of the pandemic by rewatching the show. You might be wondering when do we actually get to watch the much-anticipated F.R.I.E.N.D.S reunion. Here's some good news coming straight from Regina Phalange aka Phoebe Buffay aka Lisa Kudrow, who talked about the progress the reunion has achieved currently.
Kudrow said the crew shot packages of things
Kudrow made her appearance on Rob Lowe's podcast Literally! With Rob Lowe, where she said she had shot some scenes for the reunion. "There's different facets to it, and we already shot packages of things. I pre-shot something for it already so we're definitely doing it because I already shot a little something," she said. That raises one important question about the special.
Kudrow calls the special 'getting together'
The special is not a continuation of the original show, as the actors are not reprising their respective characters but are actually gathering for some golden reminiscence. Kudrow later told that this is a get together in front of people. "It's us getting together, which just doesn't happen a lot and has never happened in front of other people since 2004," Kudrow explained.
Kudrow says shoot to resume in early spring
However, that doesn't lessen the hype as Kudrow informed that the remaining leg of the shoot is to resume in early spring. This actually adds up as F.R.I.E.N.D.S alum Matthew Perry, who played the nerdy, jocular character of Chandler, tweeted in November last year about rescheduling the F.R.I.E.N.D.S reunion in March 2021. It sounds fun even if it's not a scripted thing.
Fans can expect behind-the-scenes footage
Since it's supposedly an impromptu hang-out zone of the six besties who ruled Central Perk, fans can expect some popular jokes recurring as the group warms up once again under HBO Max. One can also see rare behind-the-scenes footage from the wildly and widely adored '90s sitcom that ended in 2004. As far as studio props are concerned, I'm rooting for the foosball table!
