“I hope that our cast would be down for that sometime in the future. I’m ready for that, anytime,” she said.

But Cuoco added that there should be some breathing space for a Big Bang… reunion since the show only wrapped in 2019.

Meanwhile, the long-awaited Friends special will finally start filming in April, David Schwimmer has confirmed.

The one-off special, which was due to tie in with WarnerMedia’s launch of its HBO Max streaming service last year, was postponed after the coronavirus pandemic shut down studios across Hollywood.

Now, Schwimmer – who played Ross in the popular sitcom – has updated fans with the news that production will begin next month. The reunion special is expected to air later this year.
