Taking to Instagram, Aniston, who will appear with co-stars Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer on the show, wrote: "It's official! The #FriendsReunion premieres May 27th on @HBOMax - could we BE any more excited?!"

In the post, the six friends are pictured walking side by side from behind in a dimly lit street, with a piano version of the Friends theme tune playing in the background.

Cox, who played Monica Geller on the show, which ran from 1994 to 2004, recently said it was "emotional" filming the reunion, which was delayed due to Covid.

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she spoke about what it was like to finally get the gang back together.

"It was unbelievable, so emotional," she said. "It's an unscripted reunion, but we got to be on Stage 24 for the first time, all of us, in I forgot how many years - fifteen years? Seventeen years?"

Asked if it had brought back lots of memories, she said: "I have the worst memory. Everything came up that I forgot about.

"But it was great. It was really fun. We had a lot of special surprises, and it was fantastic. It really was."

The reunion was first confirmed in April, when the show's official social media account shared an image of a screen which said, "Friends The Reunion".

The caption read: "That’s a wrap! Could we BE anymore excited!? Friends: The Reunion is coming to @hbomax."
