Guys, can you believe it, we’re mere hours away from the premiere of the Friends Reunion Special! After waiting forever and a day due to the pandemic, we’ll finally get to see our favorite group of six sit down on the big orange couch and reminisce about the old days. It has been 17 years since we last saw the Friends cast all together like this and the wait is almost over.

Are you planning to stay up late tonight so you can see the gang back together again? Or would you rather get a good night’s rest and enjoy the reunion special over your morning coffee? Either option is valid, but we’re here to supply you with all of the details so you can make the decision yourself!

When & where will the Friends Reunion Special air?

The Friends Reunion Special is exclusive to those who are subscribed to WarnerMedia’s subscription service, HBO Max. You will need to sign-up for HBO Max if you want to watch the reunion. The streaming service is also the exclusive new streaming home for all 10 seasons of the series, so if you’re in the mood to revisit your favorite episodes (or even rewatch the whole thing) you can do so here as well!

As for when the reunion will become available, HBO Max releases their new content at 12:00 a.m. PT or 3:00 a.m. ET. So if you’re on the east coast, you might be pulling an all-nighter if you intend to stay up to watch the reunion right as it goes live.

HBO Max costs $14.99/month. Unfortunately, there is no option for a free trial, but you can cancel your subscription at any time.

What can you expect from the Friends Reunion Special?

Apart from the original gang reuniting for lots of fun memories, unscripted moments, and more, the reunion will also feature a plethora of surprising guest stars (some of who appeared on the show and some who haven’t), including David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lady Gaga, Elliott Gould and Christina Pickles, Kit Harington, Larry Hankin, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Thomas Lennon, Tom Selleck, James Michael Tyler, Maggie Wheeler and Malala Yousafzai.
