Actor Matthew Perry who plays Chandler on ‘Friends’ announced Thursdays that the show will start filming in March 2021. This comes after COVID-19 had already backed up the start of production by months. The production started production in March of this year but then shut down March 18th. Despite many other shows safely returning back to filming, the ‘Friends’ reunion is taking some extra time.
Actress Lisa Kudrow said this about the setbacks, “We haven’t all been in the same room in front of people — I mean, we have privately once many years ago but that’s it,” and went on to say, “The whole point of this is to be in the same room. That hasn’t changed. And HBO Max is being phenomenally patient and understanding.” Therefore, this puts the reunion special to come out around spring 2021.
