Used for Reunion Nostalgia

‘Friends’ fans tuning in to the upcoming reunion special won’t just see some familiar faces, they’ll see familiar places too … including the famous water fountain and original set.
Sources familiar with production tell us the reunion was shot over the span of 3 days at Warner Brothers Studios last week. We’ve obtained a photo from the lot showing bleachers and equipment set up around the fountain where the show’s opening credits were shot.
Our sources say a live audience participated in the reunion, but it appeared they were mostly union extras, COVID screened and hired for the gig.
Production took things inside as well … using the show’s old stage to film parts of the reunion as well.
As for what was discussed in front of the cameras, that still remains a mystery … but we know all of the show’s stars — Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc — participated.
In fact, Perry sent ‘Friends’ fans into a frenzy Saturday when he quickly posted then deleted a photo of himself in a makeup chair with the caption, “Seconds before eating a makeup brush. Not to mention reuniting with my Friends.”
The special is set to air on HBO sometime in the next few months.
