Friends: The Reunion will air on Sky One this Thursday

With a week until the hotly-anticipated Friends Reunion, Irish fans were left wondering if they were going to be able to watch the TV special.

This Thursday Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey and Ross return to New York after almost two decades away, to relive some memories, tell some stories, and chat about the most popular sitcom of all time.

The unscripted special is set to air on HBO Max in the US, but until yesterday we didn't know how we were going to watch it here in Ireland.

But yesterday afternoon, Sky Ireland announced that they have bought the exclusive rights to sure-fire hit and will air it on Sky One and their streaming service NOW TV this Thursday evening at 8pm.

All six members of the original cast - Matthew Perry (Chandler), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), Matt LeBlanc (Joey) and David Schwimmer (Ross) are taking part in the reunion along with a whole host of celebrities.

In true Friends fashion, the whole cast simultaneously released the first trailer for the reunion on their social media platforms last week. A caption on the trailer teases the special as: 'The One Where They Get Back Together.'

In a recent interview with PEOPLE, the cast said that their chemistry on set "was something we've never experienced before ever, never until that point," said Aniston. "And never really since."

Kudrow adds: "I feel like we can pick up right where we left off, and no time's passed. We're connected no matter what."
