Last week David Schwimmer aka Ross had announced that the filming of the reunion episode is set to begin in Los Angeles and well, so it did. However, the official page of Friends announced this morning that the shoot has now wrapped up sharing a picture of a massive Friends billboard.
Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer will reprise their original roles in the Reunion special episode, which will be unscripted.
The reunion was first going to be shot in March 2020 with a live audience. But, the spread of the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting lockdown shut down all the film and TV production around the world.
David Schwimmer, who essayed the role of Ross in Friends, appeared on The Graham Norton Show recently and re-confirmed that the actors were appearing as themselves and not their respective roles on the show.
“We’re not in character … we’re all ourselves, the real people,” he said before teasing, “But there is one section, I don’t want to give away — where we all read something.”
When asked if he studied up the show ahead of the highly-anticipated reunion, Schwimmer confessed, “You know, It’s really funny. I should have been doing that. And I really have very little excuse. But I haven’t been able to bring myself to catch up on the 236 episodes.”
