Friends, I have good news, and it involves… uh… Friends. It has been announced that everybody’s favourite 90s sitcom will be streaming express to Aussie television screens, and this is truly the best news.
When it was announced that Friends: The Reunion would be hitting American screens on HBO Max, it was basically a silent confirmation that opportunities to watch it here in Australia were going to be scarce, if not completely unavailable.
However, the good news is that Friends: The Reunion will be directly streamed onto your screen at the SAME TIME as the American version, thanks to Binge. Everyone get out your cards if you don’t have an account, because we are getting one ASAP.
The episode, aptly titled ‘The One Where They Get Back Together’, will star all six original cast members, with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc all reconvening for a surefire good time.
In case you missed it, you can watch the heartwarming trailer right here.
This is actually the first time since the Friends finale in 2004 that all of the original cast members have appeared on-screen together, and if you’re a diehard fan, the ep promises to hit you in the feels. The reunion special will be going over memories, recreating scenes and talking about special moments in a no-script kinda way, and we are totally here for it.
It also boasts a fkn huge list of guest stars, who will be appearing in ways completely unknown to everyone. I’m talking celebs like Lady Gaga, Reese Witherspoon, David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Elliott Gould, Kit Harington, Mindy Kaling, and Malala freaking Yousafzai, just to name a few.
So how can I watch the Friends reunion in Australia?
For those who like skipping the words in an article to get to the good stuff, you can catch Friends: The Reunion at 5:00pm AEST, Thursday May 27, exclusively on Binge.
And yes, it will be airing at the same time as the American version, so you won’t be faced with any wild spoilers online if you tune in.
I’ll see you at the viewing parties friends (no pun intended), this brand new ep is sure to have people talking.
