Friends stars filmed reunion before coronavirus shut down Hollywood


The much-anticipated Friends reunion show taped before the coronavirus lockdown, according to actor Matt Leblanc.

The HBO Max special will air next month (May 2020), as scheduled, despite initial fears it would be pulled until after the pandemic, and now LeBlanc has revealed he and his castmates managed to get the showdown before they were all forced into self-isolation.

Appearing on Monday’s (April 6, 2020) new episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, which was filmed before the pop star took off to Montana to wait out the pandemic, the actor says, “We got the band back together without the instruments.”

“(It was) the six of us together, talking about the good old days.”
