However, it became known who the special guests will be.
The Friends special will feature great celebrities: former soccer player David Beckham, Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, singer Justin Bieber, Korean band BTS, Lady Gaga and Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington. Of course there will also be some recurring performers from the series like Elliott Gould and Christina Pickles (Mom and Dad Geller), Tom Selleck (Monica’s boyfriend), Larry Hankin (the irritating downstairs neighbor), James Michael Tyler (Gunther of the Central Perk), Reese Witherspoon (Rachel’s sister) and Maggie Wheeler (Janice “Oh my god”).
