Courteney Cox's new interview has many on the internet feeling emotional...

The Friends reunion had the internet feeling excited.


But it seems it may be more of an emotional rollercoaster than we bargained for...

Friends is arguably one of the most successful sitcoms of all time.

We were introduced to the Friends gang back in 1994, when Ross (David Schwimmer), Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Chandler (Matthew Perry), Monica, (Courteney Cox), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), and Joey (Matt LeBlanc) first burst onto our screens.

It was an instant hit...

Created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, the comedy follows the friends, who live in the same New York apartment block, as they together navigate through the turbulent years of their late twenties.

And we grew to become incredibly attached to these characters...


The show truly made us feel like a member of the Friends gang, even when we were conflicted over whether Ross and Rachel really were on a break or not... FYI they totally were on a break.

The final episode aired in September 2004...


And we watched through our tears as the gang said their final goodbyes to the apartment we had all grown to know and love for the past decade.

It was an emotional rollercoaster, to say the least.


Monica and Chandler were starting a family, Phoebe was newly married, Rachel had a new job in Paris... As with a lot of friendships, the gang had grown apart and were embarking upon their separate journeys.

Oh, and Rachel got off the plane...


Fans rejoiced as Ross and Rachel finally put their differences aside and got back together.

But, over fifteen years on from Rachel getting off the plane...

We have never found out what happened to the gang. Did Rachel and Ross stay together? Would Monica and Chandler ever get divorced? Did Joey ever make it as a big actor?

Over the years, there have been a few low-key reunions and a lot of false hope...


Apart from the occasional reunion on talk shows, fans have had their fair share of disappointments when it comes to waiting for a Friends reunion.

A trailer for a Friends movie went viral a couple of years ago, giving superfans false hope that the sitcom was hitting the box office...


But it wasn't to be.

The trailer was quickly confirmed to be fake and, again, our dreams were shattered.

So, yeah... things hadn't been looking too great on the reunion front...


Many worried that, because Friends was about a group of people in their twenties and thirties, it just wouldn't work following the gang through their forties and fifties.

Well, the news we were all waiting for arrived last year...

All of the cast posted the same throwback picture on Instagram confirming the news of an official reunion.

Many fans hoped that the reunion would be scripted...

But sadly, the reunion will simply be a sit-down with the entire cast and crew to just catch up and reminisce on the good times. It still sounds brilliant, though!

Fans were asking a lot of questions...


And lots was still up in the air.

The reunion was originally scheduled to air in May on HBO Max...


Along with the channel releasing all 10 seasons of the sitcom for viewers to watch on-demand.

But bad news wasn't far around the corner...


Due to the global pandemic, the Friends reunion was called off "indefinitely," just a week before filming was set to take place.

Naturally, fans were crushed by the news...

As if this pandemic couldn't get any worse?!

But as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait...


Because we now know the reunion has been filmed and will be on screens soon!

We even got a first look behind the scenes.


With some photos that have the internet feeling thrilled.

But since the reunion, it seems one star, in particular, is feeling the strain.

...Courteney Cox.

"It was unbelievable," Cox said. "It was so emotional."

She even said she'd completely forgotten a lot of the experience, thanks to having "the worst memory."


We can't wait to watch!
