(WTVO) — The cast of “Friends” are reuniting for a special on HBO Max, Variety reported on Friday.

HBO Max is the name of a new, WarnerMedia streaming platform which nabbed the rights to “Friends” after Netflix’s option expired at the end of 2019.

HBO Max launches in May, and the special is expected to be available, along with all 236 episodes of “Friends,” upon its debut.
