Of course, with that in mind, there’s no guarantee the special will be able to film safely in March. Though it seems a long way off at this point, the pandemic is still ongoing, and it’s impossible to know how things will look four months from now.
Now, Perry has provided a new update on the special. On Twitter, he revealed filming on the Friends reunion has been rescheduled for March 2021. This latest delay means a full year will have passed between when the special was supposed to shoot and when it actually does.
Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March. Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that's the way I like it!

The delay speaks to the recent strategy of postponing movies and TV shows by several months at a time vs smaller chunks, as it gives projects a slightly better chance of making a new date. Additionally, the cast remains committed and excited about the Friends reunion, which should assuage any concerns fans have.
