If you can’t keep calm and aim to watch the show, you just need to subscribe to ZEE5‘s Premium plan by paying Rs 499 a year. This feels nominal when compared to the Netflix or Amazon Prime Video plans.
But, there’s one good news too. You can watch Friends: The Reunion for free in India, that too, legally. The ZEE5 Premium subscription is available for free with a number of Airtel and Vi plans.
Airtel provides Rs 289 prepaid plan, while Vodafone Idea has the Rs 355, 405, 595, 795, 1197, and 2399 plans for the same. JioFiber’s Rs 999 plan can also get you a free ZEE5 subscription. Additionally, Airtel Xstream Fiber plans (Rs 499, 799, 999, 1499, and 3999) do the same deed.
As a reminder, the Friends reunion will see the main cast (Jennifer Aniston as Rachel, Courteney Cox as Monica, Lisa Kudrow as Phoebe, Matt LeBlanc as Joey, Matthew Perry as Chandler, and David Schwimmer as Ross) come together after 17 years since the last season was filmed.
While it won’t be an additional episode as a continuation of what happened in the last season, it will bring in the nostalgia of the 10-year journey of what has become a crucial part of many.
Recently, its official trailer was released that gave us a glimpse of what to expect from the show. By the looks of it, we are in for a ride full of joy, tears, goosebumps, and all the Friends memories we need.
The show, which was filmed at the original soundstage, Stage 24, at the Warner Bros. Studio, will also see the entry of guests such as David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, Lady Gaga, and more.
