David Schwimmer has confirmed that the highly-anticipated Friends cast reunion will finally be filmed later this week.
The project to reunite all six original cast members - Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matt Perry, Matt Le Blanc and Lisa Kudrow - on screen for a special one-off episode was first announced at the end of 2019 ahead of planned filming in March 2020.
The coronavirus pandemic led to filming being delayed, however, but Schwimmer revealed on The Graham Norton Show that it will now take place later this week.
The actor also confirmed that the cast would be appearing as themselves for the unscripted episode rather than filming new scenes in character, although he did suggest that they may take part in some kind of script read.
"I'm going to LA to shoot the Friends reunion. I will get to see everyone for the first time in years," he said.
"Nothing is scripted and we are not in character.
"We are all ourselves, although there is one section of it that I don't want to give away, but we all read something."
The special will be released later this year. body check tags ::
