The ‘Friends’ reunion special for HBO Max has been delayed once again by the coronavirus crisis.
Jennifer Aniston spoke out about its delay, saying: “It’s going to be super. You know what? This has also given us more time to make it even more exciting and more fun than it would have been. So I choose to see it as the glass is half-full that it got postponed. “
The charming actress was reported to have said: “Look, we’re not going anywhere. You’re never going to get rid of Friends, sorry. You’re suck with us for life guys.”
