David Schwimmer, popular for his role as Ross Geller in Friends, has said that the upcoming reunion special of the sitcom is proving "really tricky" to pull off amid the Covid pandemic.

While talking to Entertainment Tonight, the actor said, "I can tell you that we are hoping to shoot (the reunion) in August, in mid-August, but honestly, we will do it when it's safe. There has always been a hope that a component of that reunion show will have a live audience, which makes the whole thing really tricky." He added that they didn't want to risk anyone's health and had no "no idea" when the shoot for the reunion special might begin.

Earlier, the show's co-creator Martha Kauffman hinted that the filming might happen in August. "We are hoping to be able to shoot in August, if all is well and there is no early second wave and the studio is open. If everything is in place and we understand all the protocols and we can still make a good show, we'll be shooting it some time, mid-to-late August," she said.

The reunion special will bring back the cast members, including  Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry, together after 25 years. The first episode was aired on September 22, 1994.
