Cox starred as Monica Gellar on the hit NBC comedy from 1994 to 2004.

The actress and her costars — Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc — are all slated to appear in the highly anticipated Friends reunion on HBO Max, which was delayed from its May premiere date last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In January, Kudrow, 57, revealed that the project, which will bring the core cast back together on the NBC comedy's original soundstage, is scheduled to shoot in "early spring."


"There's different facets to it, and we already shot packages of things," she said on an episode of Literally! With Rob Lowe. "I pre-shot something already so we're definitely doing it, because I already shot a little something."

According to the star, the reunion special will feature the cast chatting as themselves.

"It's not a reboot," Kudrow explained. "It's not like a scripted thing, we're not portraying our characters. It's us getting together, which just doesn't happen a lot and has never happened in front of other people since 2004 when we stopped."

"I think it'll be great," she added.
