Since Friends wrapped up almost two decades ago, telly fans have been crossing their fingers and hoping for the return of the long-running US sitcom.

Now, 17 years after the final episode aired, the gang are finally getting back together for a cuppa in Central Perk. It’s not quite a full-blown reboot, and instead it’ll see cast members getting together for an “unscripted” chat about the show’s legacy with host James Corden.

All of the original key cast – Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer – will appear, along with a bevy of familiar faces from the show including Reese Witherspoon (who played Rachel’s younger sister Jill Greene) Tom Selleck (Dr Richard Burke) and Maggie Wheeler (Janice).

They’ve also rounded up an impressive and slightly puzzling selection of celebs, including Justin Bieber, BTS, Mindy Kaling, David Beckham, Lady Gaga, Kit Harington, Cara Delevingne, and Malala Yousafzai.

Here’s how to tune in and watch ‘The One Where They Get Back Together’ in the UK.
