Here's the deal: They will be there for you, except not when the rain starts to fall, but rather once the rain has completely lifted and everyone can gather without fear of getting perilously wet. And the rain in this instance, you understand, is coronavirus. Because yes, the long-awaited Friends reunion special, due to start filming round about now, has been delayed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Variety reports (opens in new tab).
Filming for the special was scheduled to begin "within the next week," according to Variety, with the event intended to help launch HBO's upcoming streaming service, HBO Max, in May. It seems unlikely the special will make that release date, with filming now delayed until "May at the earliest."

Cox, appearing on the Hiking with Kevin YouTube experience, shared a little more about what it will entail. "So the exciting thing is that we're all going to get together for the first time, in a room, and actually talk about the show, and it's going to be on HBO Max, and I'm so excited," she said (opens in new tab). "It's gonna be fantastic."
