#FriendsReunion: Twitter’s best memes and reactions to the cast of ‘Friends’ getting back together

17 years after the last episode aired, the Friends cast has finally reunited. This special episode was released on 27 May via HBO Go in this part of the world. Many fans (52 million to be exact) of the ’90s sitcom tuned in to the event. Was the long-awaited reunion worth the wait? Definitely! How can you not feel nostalgic seeing Jennifer Anniston, David Schwimmer, Courtney Cox, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, and Matt LeBlanc on the same set again?

Titled “The One Where They Get Back Together” (following the naming tradition of the sitcom’s episodes), it revealed some shocking revelations about the cast. Apparently, while Schwimmer and Anniston’s characters were in a complicated romance on screen, they were actually crushing on each other in real life. As for Matt LeBlanc, he suffered a few injuries on set and even had to go to the hospital for dislocating his shoulder.

Another noteworthy mention is the many guest stars who made an appearance during the reunion. Lady Gaga showed up to do a duet with Lisa Kudrow of her character’s signature song, ‘Smelly Cat’. Justin Bieber, Cara Delevingne, and Cindy Crawford came together to model some of the show’s most outrageous looks. Opinions were split, however, about the decision to have talk show host James Corden host the reunion

Needless to say, many tears were shed for this two-hour special. If you’re a big fan of the show, be sure not to miss out! Some fans have also taken their reactions to social media. See them below:
