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

The Friend reunion will not be a reboot and will be featuring the cast chatting as themselves.

"It's not a reboot," Kudrow shared in an episode of Literally! With Rob Lowe.

"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.
