Along with announcing the stellar guest list, the official handle of the show also posted a teaser.
It showed the six, we have grown up watching, holding one another, and walking down a path, while their backs are facing the camera.

Information: Please note: Reunion special is not a 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S' episode
A major reminder for all the fans of the sitcom: The reunion special isn't a scripted episode of the F.R.I.E.N.D.S series.
Kudrow confirmed it first in an interview a while ago.
