Friends: The Reunion is set to release on the 27th of May at 12 AM. The show will be available on HBO Max in the United States. As of now, we have no idea when the show will release in India. But whenever it releases, it will be streaming on Zee5.
Zee owns the streaming platform, and they made this announcement this Sunday. Whenever the show releases in India, their platform, Zee5, will be streaming it officially. However, the company has not mentioned anything about when it would release in India. In the United States, the special episode will release on the 27th of May at 12 AM only on HBO Max. This time comes at 12:30 PM in India. The fans will be hoping that the episode starts streaming on Zee5 at that exact time. Most probably, it seems that the people in India will also be able to watch it on the 27th of Mayat 12:30 PM. However, the final decision lies with Warner Bros. Television and HBO Max.
Zee5’s announcement about airing Friends: The Reunion
Manish Kalra, the chief business officer of the streaming platform, announces that he is very excited to stream the special episode of the much-loved show. This show is the world’s one of the most loved and most viewed sitcom shows. Zee5 feels proud and happy to air this episode on their platform. There are several other shows and movies in all languages that will make the audience of different kinds fulfill their enjoyment needs. The fans can watch the special episode by sitting safely at home.
However, it seems very odd that Zee5 is going to stream this special episode of the show. This particular platform has earlier shown very little interest in shows and movies that are in English. Zee5 also has no earlier connections with Warner Media. Instead, we have seen extensive ties of Warner Media television with Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar, and Prime Video. The first ten seasons of the show are being streamed on Netflix. Other than this, several other Warner Media Productions are being streamed on Netflix for a long time. Prime Video also holds a record of getting hold of a Warner movie for the first year, and then they move to Netflix. We all know that Disney+ Hotstar is presently the home of almost all the content from HBO.
However, due to the decision to stream the episode on Zee5, we will see a rise in the subscribers of the streaming platform. But the question arises whether the people will even continue watching the shows on the platform once they are done watching the special episode.
We will get to see all the stars of the show like Courtney Cox, Jennifer Anniston, Lisa Kudrow, Mathey Perry, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc. This show is being filmed at Stage 24, the original soundstage where all the previous seasons and episodes were shot. We will get to see several guests coming on this episode like Justin Beiber, David Beckham, BTS, Cindy Crawford, James Corden, Lady Gaga, Cara Delevingne, Elliott Gould, Larry Hankin, Kit Harington, Mindy Kaling, Christina Pickles, Thomas Lennon, Tom Selleck, Maggie Wheeler, James Michael Tyler, Malala Yousafzai, and Reese Witherspoon.
The main cast of the show is also acting as the executive producer of the special episode. Ben Winston will direct it along with the executive producers from before, Kevin Bright, David Crane, and Marta Kauffman.
