Slasher-obsessed fans will know the franchise focuses on a young woman in a small town who becomes the target of a killer – known as GhostFace – who wears a mask inspired by the Edvard Munch painting The Scream.

The movie, which is set to come out in 2021, will now be focusing on Sidney Prescott returning to her hometown to see if GhostFace is behind the newly committed crimes.

The Sun previously reported how the cast of Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt Le Blanc will return to set next month.

UK publication The Mirror has told how filming will be hugely different to the cast being cozied up on the sofas at Central Perk Cafe.

A source told the publication: “There are going to be very strict guidelines and that includes no live audiences,” one source told the outlet.

“All of the cast will be tested for Covid-19, and asked to quarantine in isolation after they’ve had the tests.”


Martha Kauffman, who co-created Friends with David Crane, gave fans a glimmer of hope over the reunion date.

She told The Wrap : “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.”

Friends originally aired on NBC from September 1994 until May 2004 and consisted of 10 seasons and 236 episodes.
