'Friends' cast plays iconic trivia game in first trailer of reunion episode

HBO Max has released the official trailer for the highly anticipated reunion episode of Friends.

The streaming service on Thursday unveiled a two-minute trailer for the reunion episode of the iconic ’90s TV show, which will see Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer return to Stage 24 of Warner Bros. Studios, the original soundstage where the show was filmed throughout its 10-season run from 1994 to 2004.

The trailer begins with the beloved cast recreating the iconic trivia game from the episode “The One with the Embryos,” in which Monica and Rachel lose their apartment to Chandler and Joey. But this time around, though, it appears that the questions are all about the show.

In the clip, we see Schwimmer ask his fellow stars how many pages Rachel's letter to Ross was in Season 4's “The One With The Jellyfish” episode. "18 pages!" LeBlanc cheerfully replies as the whole gang immediately recalls the iconic scene. But of course, Schwimmer needs a complete answer, prompting Aniston to shout one of the most popular lines in the show: "front and back!"

The cast is later seen wandering around the set and participating in a table read of a scene from the show's “The One Where Everybody Finds Out” episode, in which the gang learns that Monica and Chandler are dating.

The upcoming reunion special also shows the stars in a sit-down interview with host James Corden, where the latter is seen asking the cast if Rachel and Ross were really on a break.

Aside from the seminal show's original cast—Schwimmer, LeBlanc, Aniston, Cox, Kudrow, and Perry, the special episode will also feature a variety of special guests including David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lady Gaga, Kit Harington, Mindy Kaling, and Malala Yousafzai.

Other special guests joining the reunion special are some of the show's beloved characters such as Larry Hankin (Mr. Heckles), Thomas Lennon (Randall), Elliott Gould (Jack Geller), Christina Pickles (Judy Geller), Tom Selleck (Dr. Richard Burke), James Michael Tyler (Gunther), Maggie Wheeler (Janice), and Reese Witherspoon (Jill Greene).

The Friends: Reunion episode is slated to premiere exclusively on HBO Max on May 27. Check out the full trailer below:
