In November 2019, Warner Bros. Television was developing Friends: The Reunion special for their new streaming service, HBO Max. The special would feature the whole cast and co-stars. In February 2020, an unscripted Friends was commissioned with all original cast and co-creators returning. The special was executive produced by the show’s co-creators, Kevin S. Bright, Marta Kauffman and David Crane, and the show’s main cast, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer. Ben Winston directed and executive produced through Fulwell 73. Warner Bros. Unscripted & Alternative Television (later Warner Horizon Unscripted Television) was also involved in the production of the special.

The special was filmed in Los Angeles, California, at Stage 24, also known as “The Friends Stage” at Warner Bros. Studios, Burbank, where Friends had been filmed since its second season. The filming of the reunion began in April 2021. Filming of the special was delayed twice, first in March 2020, and second in August 2020, both due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The trivia game and talk show segments of the special, hosted by James Corden, were filmed in front of a live audience of “mostly union extras, [who were] COVID screened and hired for the gig”. Representatives for Perry clarified that he had an emergency dental surgery prior to filming when viewers were concerned about his appearance.
