It’s been 25 years since the iconic sitcom Friends was first aired. Ever since the first episode, the series has captured both the attention and hearts of millions of people worldwide. Many fans are obsessed with the idea of a Friends reunion film, but with the odds of it ever happening being unlikely, we can at least feast our eyes on the cast’s real-life friendship.

Recently, 50-year-old actress Jennifer Aniston joined Instagram and decided to show off her friends. Her debut was so big, that it crashed her Instagram profile.

It’s no secret that probably the most adored group of friends on screen are also very good friends in real life too.

While the group of friends often appeared in each other’s Instagram accounts, it’s the first photo they shared where the whole group was brought together.

The reunion photo comes after Aniston’s commentary denying the possibility of any kind of follow-up to the original series: “Our producers wouldn’t want it, wouldn’t let us. Look, it’s not been without our desire to, because our fans have wanted it so much … It would have been fun. We could have redesigned it for a couple of episodes. But whatever. Maybe it’s better this way, but we’ll never know.”
