Die-hard fans of the popular sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S can finally breathe a sigh of relief as the first glimpse of the reunion episode is here. In the teaser, we can spot David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox and Matt LeBlanc walking with their backs to the camera. The clip plays the instrumental version of the show's theme song I'll be there for you. The makers gave it a dash of nostalgia as they added the episode name in their trademark style which said, “The one where they get back together.” It is slated to premiere on HBO Max on May 27.
Matthew Perry also shared the teaser on his Instagram timeline and asked fans "what are you most excited about?"
The teaser created a buzz on Twitter with fans making a beeline to share their excitement. A user wrote, “How to save 2021: F.R.I.E.N.D.S Reunion.”
Another used the perfect reference to share her excitement. “F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan right now… I am fine,” it was written along with Ross' ‘squeaky voice' meme.
An emotional user dropped a Rachel-themed meme with the tweet, “I may cry, we are going back home.”
A curious user asked, "Anybody knows if F.R.I.E.N.D.S Reunion is a one time show or if it has episodes or if it's anything else???"

You could literally have just invited #BradPitt and have had @MatthewPerry make things hilariously awkard between him & #JenniferAniston with his jokes, but no, you HAD to bring in all sorts of random unrelated people like BTS!— Shubam Jain (@WokeIndianAadmi) May 14, 2021

Okay I'm very excited for the friends reunion but I don't know why I feel like that this might be a disappointment to many because of so many freaking guest stars. This should be just about them, not others! #FriendsReunion#Friends— chandlerlovesmonica (@Stefanlovescar1) May 14, 2021
