David Schwimmer Says Friends Reunion Could Start Filming In August

David Schwimmer Says Friends Reunion Could Start Filming In August

The much-anticipated Friends reunion episode could start filming as early as August, according to David Schwimmer.

Schwimmer, 53, who played Ross Geller in the sitcom, revealed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that filming for the one-off episode will depend on Covid-19 restrictions.

The special will also feature 'special bits', according to Schwimmer - although he didn't expand on what that might mean.

Speaking on the chat show, he said: "It's supposed to happen maybe in August, the middle of August, but honestly we're going to wait and see another week or two if we all determine it's really safe enough to do. And if not, then we'll wait until it's safe."

It will air in the US on HBO Max and will see all six of the main characters back together for the episode.

Co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry will join Schwimmer for the reunion, which was originally supposed to air in May, but was put on hold due to the pandemic.

On The Tonight Show, he also told finally settled the debate about whether Rachel and Ross were on a break.

Schwimmer said: "People are so passionately divided on whether or not [Ross and Rachel] were 'on a break'."

When asked if the couple were broken up, Schwimmer stayed true to his character, saying immediately: "Yes, it's not even a question, they were on a break."

More fuel that fire, then.

The cast of Friends announced that the reunion would happen back in February, 16 years after the final episode aired.

Confirming the news, David Schwimmer (Ross Geller), Courteney Cox (Monica Geller), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green), and Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing) all shared the same post on social media.

Sharing a snap of the gang all together, they wrote: "It's happening."

Matt LeBlanc, who played Joey Tribbiani, took a different approach to his co-stars, instead sharing a snap of the cast of war sitcom M*A*S*H, the film of which starred Elliott Gould, who famously played Monica and Ross' dad in the series.
