According to Variety, the cast will return to the original Friends soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank. Ben Winston will direct and executive produce, alongside Friends producers Marta Kauffman, Kevin S. Bright, and David Crane.

Kevin Reilly, HBO Max’s chief content officer, said in a statement: “Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together — we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa, and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire Friends library.”

The special-reunion episode will air on the HBO Max streaming service which will launch in May.
