After a long wait, the episode is now finally slated to air on the 27th of May on HBO Max.

As reported by Entertainment Weekly, in addition to the series' main cast members comprising of Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry, Friends: The Reunion will feature special appearances by an exciting gallery of stars.

These include BTS, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, David Beckham, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Reese Witherspoon, Malala Yousafzai, Kit Harington and more.

The Reunion episode has been directed by Ben Winston and executive produced by the original team of Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman and David Crane. The Friends special was filmed on the popular sitcom's original soundstage, Stage 24.

Out of the numerous personalities set to appear, the one name that has caused a collective frenzy across the globe is that of BTS, who continue to make waves online.

As reactions continue to pour in from across the globe, the hype surrounding the Friends Reunion episode has just got a lot more real, thanks to the glistening array of stars led by BTS.
