Friends Reunion: David Schwimmer reveals potential filming date

Following the confirmation of the long-awaited Friends reunion on HBO Max, fans immediately rejoiced about being able to see their six titular leads after a long time. However, they would have to wait much longer than it was originally planned because the upcoming special’s scheduled filming in March was temporarily delayed due to the pandemic.

In a recent interview with AP which you can check out below, David Schwimmer has finally opened up about the highly-anticipated unscripted Friends reunion, revealing that they’re planning to shoot the special in August. His revelation echoes the statement made by WarnerMedia Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt back in May, who confirmed that production might finally start at the end of the summer.

“We’re hoping to shoot it, I think the hope right now is to shoot it in August if, of course, it’s safe to do so,” Schwimmer said. “Part of the plan was always to have a live-audience component of the show. By the way, it’s unscripted, we’re not playing our characters. It’s basically an interview with all six of us reuniting for literally the first time in probably ten years. So we’ll see, I hope it happens in August, if not it’ll be when it’s safe to do so.”
