Washington D.C.: The much-awaited reunion special episode of the famous 90’s sitcom ‘Friends’ is once again being delayed owing to the coronavirus pandemic which is impacting the physical production.
According to Variety, the filming dates are yet to be determined for the unscripted show planned to be telecasted on HBO Max.
The reunion special was originally scheduled to be shot back in March with a live audience but was postponed due to the entertainment production shutdown caused due to coronavirus.
