Meeting friends: when can you watch in UK? UK News

It was confirmed last week that Friends will return for the highly anticipated reunion episode on May 27.

Friends was one of the biggest sitcoms on the planet in the 90s before it ended in 2004 and now the series has a new generation of fans thanks to streaming services like Netflix.

The special episode will air on streaming service HBO Max when a trailer releases on social media.

The clip shows the six members of the original cast – Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer – walking arm in arm in a studio.

The video was accompanied by a down-tempo version of the theme from the American sitcom, I’ll Be There For You by The Rembrandts.

The shows are arguably returning among the biggest TV news of the year, as the full cast will meet for the first time in over 20 years.

To add to the excitement, HBO also revealed a list of star-studded celebrities who will appear as themselves.

They include David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lady Gaga, Kit Harington, Tom Selleck, Reese Witherspoon and Malala Yousafzai.

Friends: The Reunion is scheduled to air in the US on May 27, but with so many fans on this side of the Atlantic we all want to know when it will be available in the UK.

When will the Friends meeting be broadcast in the UK?

The show will air next Thursday (May 27) in the United States on HBO.

There is no official confirmation on the UK-broadcast channel, but according to Deadline, Sky appears to be the top favorite.

Sky has the exclusive rights to a number of HBO originals such as Game of Thrones and Watchmen, so they seem like the logical broadcasters for a UK market.

But as the hottest thing in the TV market right now, other broadcasters might be rushing to claim the rights.

Sky has yet to comment, so UK fans have yet to wait to find out exactly where they can watch the episode.

“It’ll be super”

Fans have had a long wait made even longer by the coronavirus pandemic.

The show was repeatedly postponed until it was sure to continue amid the global health crisis.

But the show’s star Jennifer Aniston said the show would be even better.

She told Variety: “Unfortunately, it’s very sad that we had to move it again. It was, ‘How do we do this with the live audience?’ This is not a safe time. Period. This is the main thing. This is not a safe time to do it. [But] it’ll be super. You know what? It also gave us more time to make it even more exciting and fun than it would have been.

“So I chose to see it as the glass is half full that it was postponed. Look, we’re not going anywhere. You’re never going to get rid of Friends, sorry. You guys are stuck with us for life. ”

When the news broke, Courteney Cox, who plays Monica Geller, struggled to contain her excitement.

She wrote on Instagram: This sort of thing doesn’t happen every year, or even every 10 or 15 years. I feel so lucky to have had the chance to reunite with my friends… and it was better than ever.
