The eagerly anticipated Friends reunion episode will now start filming next March, according to cast member Matthew Perry.

"Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March," he tweeted on Thursday.

"Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that's the way I like it!"

The special one-off show was due to start filming in August but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It will bring together the original cast of Perry, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer.

By Friday morning, Perry's tweet had received more than 100,000 likes and retweets.
