Friends remains one of the most iconic, culture-defining shows of a generation and the highly anticipated reunion special is finally coming to our screens on 27 May.

As if the announcement couldn’t get any better, the reunion special will feature all six original cast members, other familiar, beloved characters and characters a whole slew of other celebrity guests. Could you BE more excited?!

Get ready for a Friends Reunion in style

Here are 6 ideas for Aussies to prepare and celebrate the one we have all been waiting for: The One Where They Got Back Together:

  1. Binge watch every episode. 10 seasons, 236 episodes, and only a week out from the reunion premiere. Perhaps reserved for only the dedicated Friends fanatics, this feat is not for the faint of heart.
  2. Test your knowledge with some Friends trivia. Now is the perfect time to refresh your knowledge, gather your nearest and dearest, and find out how much you really know about the show. Crown the biggest Friends fan by creating your own trivia game. You can even up the stakes by making your own ‘Geller Cup’ as a prize for the winner. For those who like to keep things simple, there are plenty of Friends-themed trivia sites to help you test your knowledge.
  3. Step back into the 90s. Take a trip down memory lane and dust off your favourite 90’s games to really get into the mood. Bring out classics such as Twister, Connect Four and Uno. Or channel a bit of Joey and Chandler, go all out and see if you can find a Foosball table. Nothing like a little friendly competition!
  4. Make your favourite recipes from the show. The food we’ve seen on Friends is almost as iconic as the characters on the show. The name Joey is practically synonymous with pizza or a meatball sub, and who could forget the lost recipe of Phoebe’s grandmother’s famous chocolate chip cookies, or Rachel’s hilarious Thanksgiving trifle blunder? There are hundreds of Friends-inspired recipes available online, so Aussies can channel their inner Monica and cook up a feast, or if all else fails, order in!
  5. Throw a watch party! What’s the point of making all of that Friend’s themed food if you don’t have people to share it with? Get your friends together and throw yourselves a fun watch-party for the reunion. Decorate the house with Friends-themed décor or create your own little Central Perk in the lounge room.
  6. Dress for the occasion. Bring on the nostalgia and celebrate the reunion by dressing up as your favourite character. If you’re keeping it casual, tune in while wearing your favourite Friends-themed Oodie. Choose from pretty pastel green, featuring the iconic Central Perk coffee house logo, or winter white, with cute cartoon versions of your favourite Friends characters. These cosy Oodies will keep you toasty warm and ready to enjoy the special.
