Oh, the memories! Courteney Cox teleported us back in time as she recently shared a super cute pic of the Friends cast. The actress took to Instagram on Thursday, January 23, to post a throwback photo of the beloved group as they geared up to film the iconic program’s final episode in 2004.
“‘The Last Supper’ before taping ‘The Last One’ on January 23, 2004,” the 55-year-old beauty — who played the role of Monica Geller throughout the show’s 10 seasons — adorably captioned the snapshot, adding the hashtags “tbt” and “friends” at the end of her post.
Fans were understandably emotional as they flooded Courteney’s comments section with loving messages. “This makes me so happy but so sad at the same time!” one fan wrote, while another echoed, “And that last tape continues to break hearts in 2020.” A third fan chimed in, joking, “Come back. Just come back. We suffered a reboot of sh—ty Roseanne (The Conners). We need you to balance out the universe.”
Courteney’s sentimental post comes months after the cast celebrated the 25th anniversary of the show — which first premiered in September 1994. The Cougar Town star, as well as costars Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc were all emotional as they looked back on their incredible legacy.
“Celebrating a Thursday night 25 years ago,” Courteney wrote in her post in September 2019. “Thank you to all of our loyal fans across the world. You’ve certainly been there for us! I love these guys.”
Despite airing over two decades ago, fans have never been more obsessed with Friends. In fact, Jen, 50, reignited some sparks when she revealed she would be interested in doing a reboot alongside her former costars.
“Listen, I told you this: I would do it,” she previously revealed to host Ellen DeGeneres. “The girls would do it. And the boys would do it, I’m sure.”
However, the show’s executive producer and co-creator Marta Kauffman echoed a different sentiment as she spoke to the Associated Press in June 2019. “Why mess up a good thing?” she shared at the time. “We wouldn’t want a reunion to disappoint fans.”
Don’t lose hope just yet, though. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the six actors and show creators are reportedly in talks about “an unscripted reunion” on HBO Max.
It looks like we’ll have to stay tuned!
