HBO Max has dropped the first footage from the much-awaited Friends: The Reunion in the form of a teaser trailer.

Released on Thursday, the 30-second clip shows the sitcom’s six main cast members ― Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer ― walking arm and arm at night.

While the video doesn’t really reveal much about the reunion, it was announced on the same day that the special will be available to stream on HBO Max starting May 27th.

The AT&T-owned streaming service also unveiled the list of guest stars that will appear in the special, and they are 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.

While the diverse guest-star list is quite exciting, a lot of fans are disappointed that some of their favorite actors that guest starred and recurred in the sitcom are not part of the special.

Mainly filmed on Stage 24, the sitcom’s original soundstage on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank, California, Friends: The Reunion will see Aniston, Cox, Kudrow, LeBlanc, Perry, and Schwimmer reminisce on the years working on the show together and their friendships since.

During her appearance on the podcast Literally! With Rob Lowe last January, Kudrow implied that Central Perk and other memorable sets from the series will be featured during the special. She also mentioned that the special has “different facets” to it, including some pre-shots that she had done long before the actual filming started last April.

While the Friends: The Reunion is unscripted and the cast members will not necessarily reprise their characters from the show, Schwimmer revealed during his appearance on The Graham Norton Show last April that there is one section of the special where they “all read something” that may excite fans.
