Oh. My. God. Friends: The Reunion has officially wrapped, and Courteney Cox just shared some sentimental details about the special. Needless to say, we're all ears.
While appearing virtually on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Courteney took the time to reminisce about the nostalgic experience with her costars, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer.
"It was unbelievable. It was so emotional," she recalled about filming Friends: The Reunion. "It's an unscripted reunion, but we got to be on Stage 24 for the first time, all of us in, like, I forgot how many years. 15 years? 17 years?"

She noted that the special touched on so many topics she'd even forgotten about. Undoubtedly, fans of the cult classic will love reminiscing about those moments in Central Perk, the laughable inside jokes, and the ups and downs each character faced.
Speaking of downers, Courteney admitted that the worst part about the series itself was filming the intro and dripping wet in the fountain—a longer process than anyone anticipated. In true Chandler Bing fashion, Matthew Perry was quick to comment on the famous opening shot.
"I remember Matthew Perry saying at one point, and we didn't know each other that well at that point, but I remember—and this was so Matthew—but he was like, 'Can't remember a time that I wasn't in this fountain," Courteney joked.

Although HBO Max has yet to release an airdate for the highly-anticipated special (though we're hopeful updates are coming our way soon), we're not expecting a new episode of the series, rather a commentary on the sensation itself.
"In order to avoid any misunderstanding about what this special is, we want to make it very clear that this is not a new, original episode of the series. The cast will be appearing as themselves, not as their beloved characters," a statement from HBO Max read, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Even still, the excitement over revisiting our favorite Friends moments with the stars themselves is incredibly special. Until the reunion release, you can find us pampering ourselves with the Friends makeup line at Ulta. Grab the Rachel to your Monica, apply a sheet mask, and enjoy a little r&r.
