Further adding, “I became aware of ‘Friends’ when it was in the very early stages of development and then had the opportunity to work on the series many years later and have delighted in seeing it catch on with viewers generation after generation. It taps into an era when friends – and audiences – gathered together in real time and we think this reunion special will capture that spirit, uniting original and new fans.”

Many fellow celebrities were excited about the upcoming reunion. Queer Eye star Antoni Porowski commented, “NOTHING ELSE MATTERS.” His co-star Tan France wrote, “NEVER HAS “I CAN’T EVEN” BEEN MORE RELEVANT.”
