The filming was to happen in the same stage where the show was shot for 10 seasons. The reunion episode has now been postponed owing to the pandemic.

Recently, both Aniston and Kudrow have given previews of what to expect from the episode which will have Ellen Degeneres as the host.

Kudrow responded, "Yes, that will be really great. I can't wait to do that. I really can't wait to do that. Yeah, we don't know everything about it, we need to say. I think we're meant to be surprised by some things as well."
