“It’s all looking like a fiasco,” an unnamed source said.
“Jen, for one, is regretting she ever agreed to do this.”

Aniston pulling out from reunion debunked
Jennifer Aniston loved the show. In fact, she had separation anxiety when it was about to end. Thus, it is very unlikely that she would skip the reunion.
“That was really painful. It was a family, and I don’t do great with families splitting up,” Aniston told Vanity Fair when Friends was about to end.
“It was hard to have such a wonderful constant in your life, a place to go every day, and then all of a sudden it’s not there.”
Moreover, Aniston joined the All In challenge back in April and shared a snap of her with her Friends co-stars.
In the caption, Aniston announced that they were inviting their fans to join them on Stage 24 when they tape the reunion. The lucky winner would be able to bring six of his or her friends along and enjoy the whole Friends VIP experience on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour.
Friends Reunion update
Jennifer Aniston and her co-stars were set to make the unscripted reunion special in May. However, the producers pushed it back due to the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Bob Greenblatt, Warner Media Entertainment, and Direct-to-Consumer chairman, they wanted to finish it by the end of summer. Their original plan is to include a live audience to experience the six great friends coming back together. However, if the pandemic would continue to delay it, they might make a virtual reunion, Variety reported.
