Regardless of where you stand with NBC’s sitcom Friends created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, there’s simply no denying the pop cultural history was written across ten seasons and 236 episodes. Fronted by the ensemble cast of Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, both the archetypes their characters represented as well as the overall premise itself has been replicated time and time again. Today, almost 17 years since the show’s finale hit the airways to an audience of 52.5 million in the US alone, HBO has released the first full-length Friends: The Reunion trailer for the upcoming special event fans have been awaiting for over a decade.

An initial trailer was uploaded last week, but much to the chagrin of many, it didn’t actually feature any footage of the reunion special in question. This latest trailer, on the other hand, has everything you hoped for. The entirety of the main cast has returned to the soundstage where it all went down – Stage 24 on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank, California – and they’re hitting all the nostalgia notes: trivia, tables reads re-enacting iconic scenes, and general reflections which appear to provoke tears from more than one of the former 90s stars.
