Friends: The Reunion special will be available for Indian viewers on ZEE5 soon, according to the video streaming platform. Although the special is set to premiere on the HBO Max streaming service in the United States on May 27, the date for its debut in India has yet to be announced.
17 years after the last episode of the classic sitcom’s initial 236-episode run aired on NBC, HBO Max agreed to release the reunion episode. The show gained a new generation of fans after its entire run of ten seasons was released on streaming giant Netflix in the middle of the 2000s.
“We are extremely excited to bring Friends: The Reunion exclusively on Zee5 for the Indian market. Friends is amongst the world’s most-watched and loved sitcoms and it is a great opportunity for us to present their reunion, something that the world has been talking about, on Zee5 for Friends fans in India. Zee5 is the home of entertainment for millions and fans across regions and languages can enjoy Friends: The Reunion from the safety of their home.”Manish Kalra, Zee5

Famous stars including David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lady Gaga, Elliott Gould, Kit Harington, Larry Hankin, Mindy Kaling, Thomas Lennon, Christina Pickles, Tom Selleck, James Michael Tyler, Maggie Wheeler, Reese Witherspoon, and Malala Yousafzai are set to make special appearances at the Reunion.
