The outlet reports co-creator David Crane backed her up “We did the show we wanted to do. We got it right, and we put a bow on it.”


Earlier this year, fans speculated a reunion was in the works after Cox, Aniston and Kudrow kept hanging out.

The threesome posted on social media a bunch of photos of girls’ night.

Cox posted a photo of them with the caption, “Trying to figure out what to say on Instagram....#gotnothing #friends#girlsnight”


Kudrow took it a step farther with her caption, “Halfway there... #girlsnight #?”, with many taking that as a reference to having all the “Friends” women on board but waiting for the three men stars.


The trio were also together for Cox’s 55th birthday. "How lucky am I to celebrate my birthday with these two???" Cox captioned a photo alongside Lisa Kudrow and Jennifer Aniston. "I love you girls. So much ♥️."

Kudrow commented on the photo, writing, "LOVE you girls! Happy happy Court."
