We don’t have long to wait for one of the most anticipated TV events in years!

There are a few questions about Friends still left lingering, somewhat unanswered.

Were they on a break?

Would Rachel have actually been better off with Joey?

Whatever happened to Ross’ first kid Ben?

But one question we do have an answer to is when Irish viewers can watch the Friends reunion.

We’ve known that Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey, and Ross would all be reuniting for the one-off show on HBO Max later this month, but since that screening platform doesn’t exist here, Irish fans were left scratching their heads about when (or if!) they’d get to see it any time soon.

And guess what! We’ve got some good news for you!

The special episode, which will MC’d by James Corden, will feature a stacked cast of actors returning to Friends set, including Christina Pickles and Elliot Gould (Monica and Ross’ parents), James Michael Tyler (Gunther), Maggie Wheeler (Janice), Reese Witherspoon (Rachel’s sister Jill) and Tom Selleck (Dr Richard Burke).

There will also be a host of celebrities on hand to talk about their memories of the hit show, such as BTS, Cara Delevingne, Cindy Crawford, David Beckham, Justin Bieber, Kit Harington, Lady Gaga, Malala Yousafzai and Mindy Kaling.

Friends: The Reunion will be available to watch on NOW from 8am on Thursday, 27 May. Head right here to sign up for an entertainment pass.
