Teasing a glimpse into life before Rachel, Aniston revealed that when she told the producer of the show she was working on the time that she was going to do Friends, he said: "That show's not going to make you a star."

Courteney Cox used to write her lines on the table

LeBlanc revealed a behind-the-scenes titbit as he explored the set.

As he walked around, he stopped at the table, asking his castmates: "Does Courteney still have her lines written on the table?"

We will get to see the actors in character in some way

While we already know that the reunion will not be a new scripted episode, the trailer does promise plenty of nostalgic nods to previous episodes.

One shot shows the cast sat down together at a table read as they re-enacted the lines from "The One Where Everyone Finds Out," the episode where Phoebe finds out about Chandler and Monica's relationship.

Kudrow was praised online for the perfect execution of her famous line, "my eyes, my eyes."

Another shot showed the cast answering Friends trivia in the format of the game in fan-favorite episode "The One with the Embryos," where Phoebe gets an embryo implant to become a surrogate for her brother. The game sees the cast answer questions from various categories including fears and pet peeves, ancient history and literature.

Despite there being plenty of excitement around the episode, not all fans were pleased with the recent celebrity guest line-up announcement.

The line-up features a string of A-list celebrities including K-pop superstars BTS, singers Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, model Cara Delevingne and activist Malala Yousafzai.

Some fans criticized the show for not including any Black celebrities in the line-up.

HBO Max did not respond to Newsweek's request for comment at the time.

Friends: The Reunion will air on HBO Max on May 27.
