Still without a date for its Brazilian debut, HBO Max is expected to be available in 2021 on national lands, following its adaptation period in North America and Europe.

On the occasion, he celebrated the novelty:
“Filming for the Reunion of Friends is scheduled for March. It looks like we’re going to have a busy year ahead. And that’s how I like it!

Initially scheduled for March 2020, the registrations had to be postponed until August, due to the increase in the number of people infected around the world.
However, the global situation did not improve enough for the special to be safely filmed and HBO Max was forced to wait for the storyline to shrink a bit more, before they could give a new date.
Recently, in an interview with Variety, Bob Greenblatt, the president of the company, said that the idea to record a cover came from Courteney Cox, the interpreter of Monica Geller.
Greenblatt said Cox got the cast together for dinner early last year and suggested they bring the idea to Warner Media executives.
“I heard that Courteney convinced his friends of the idea. It sounded exciting, so the whole cast were trying to convince us. But we [da Warner Media] we knew we couldn’t answer without planning calmly… It was a very difficult time as we had to make a quick decision. “
