Conflicting information about the filming has been revealed by the stars of the show. LeBlanc told Kelly Clarkson that the cast already filmed, according to TV Guide. That particular episode was taped in February and was released in April.

Jimmy Kimmel was told by Cox in mid-March that they were supposed to film over the course of two days in that month. The shooting got postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic. She said that they had a meeting with everyone except for Schwimmer who was not in New York at that time.
