During a virtual appearance on "Today,", Schwimmer confirmed that the reunion would definitely still happen, while adding that they already had the creative aspects of the show worked out. Schwimmer also stated that although the reunion would be unscripted, fans can still expect some funny bits of surprises.

Speaking further, Schwimmer explained that the real issue is when production would resume because it has to be done when it is safe for everyone. When asked if his other co-stars are on board with the reunion, Schwimmer replied:

"Oh yeah! Yeah, that's not even a question."

While speaking to ET earlier in the month, Schwimmer revealed that he and his other co-stars were hoping they could resume production in mid-August.

Schwimmer added that although some shows have reunited virtually, it is important for him and his co-stars to have their reunion before a live audience.

Although the reunion has not been filmed yet, it is expected to drop on the new streaming platform once it is released.

Earlier this year, Schwimmer reportedly expressed concerns over the show's lack of diversity, and at the time, he explained that he had often pushed for his character to date women of color.

To Schwimmer, there was not enough representation on the show, and although that displeased him, he remains happy about one aspect of the show — gay representation.

He believes the way gay relationships had been portrayed is incredible because, at that time, it was not a popular idea on television.

In May, "Friends" and some other shows and movies returned to streaming when HBO Max was officially launched.

Although the reunion has not been filmed yet, it is expected to drop on the new streaming platform once it is released.

While there is no specific release date for the reunion show, there is no doubt that fans anticipate the return of some of their favorite characters from the series.
