Filming on the untitled reunion special was scheduled for next Monday and Tuesday. But due to the coronavirus crisis, the special has been delayed until May. According to Deadline, HBO Max is "believed" to be launching in late May. So it's possible the Friends reunion special could still be used to launch the WarnerMedia streaming service. "Given the severity of the health crisis, which ground all Hollywood production to a halt in a matter of days, it is currently doubtful that any film or TV production could resume by May though the situation is being evaluated week by week and even day by day," says Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "Right now, there are strict federal and state guidelines limiting public gatherings to help curb the spread of the virus, which are expected to be in place for weeks."
