Late last year a special one off reunion episode of the hit 90s sitcom 'Friends' was confirmed to be in the works for the streaming service HBO Max.

The entire original cast, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston all signed on to return. But due to the Coronavirus pandemic, their plans to film the episode were put on hold... But reports suggest that hasn't stopped them altogether!

An insider reportedly told The Sun that "as soon as filming was cancelled, everyone started panicking as it took so long to get their schedules to align, there was a deep fear it may take a year or even longer to get them all back together again."

"Courtney immediately set up a Zoom meeting for them and they all logged on to discuss ideas - brain-storming and bringing in the producers for a session which they called a mock rehearsal and chatted for almost two hours."

They went on to say "they’ve been having daily meetings and Jen [Aniston] - who has the busiest schedule of the six - has assured them she’ll do whatever she can to ensure they don’t have to wait months to get the reunion filmed.

"Their Zoom sessions have been brilliant fun, and there’s some hilarious material on there which they hope can be aired as either a series of teasers, or even a stand-alone special."

The reunion was partly dreamed up to celebrate the show's 25th anniversary. Time will tell if we see anything from the casts' video calls!
