Friends fans, take note: Jennifer Aniston just gave us all a bit of hope about a future reboot.

During her Wednesday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the actress revealed she’d be open to the idea of a reunion for the beloved sitcom.

“Why not? You know what, because, listen, I told you this. I would do it,” Jennifer said when Ellen opened the interview almost immediately by jokingly demanding that Jen “do a Friends reunion.”

Jen seems to think she’s not alone in being up for a reboot, revealing that her costars would almost certainly be willing to appear in one, as well.

“The girls [Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow] would do it. And the boys [David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, and Matt LeBlanc] would do it, I’m sure,” she said.

“Listen. Anything could happen.”

Obviously, the entire cast has been constantly bombarded with reunion questions ever since the show ended over 15 years ago after 10 seasons on the air. But Jen’s response to Ellen is easily the most definitive answer one of the cast members has given to the plea for a revival.

Previously, Jen’s costars voiced their doubts that the particular spirit of the show — about a group of young adults forming their own found family — could be recaptured, given the show’s original ending which found each of the pals forming their own family units.

“I don’t see it happening,” Lisa Kudrow told Today in 2017, per E! News. “It would be fun, but what would it be about? Think about it. The thing we liked best about the show was that they were 20-somethings and they were their own family. Now, they all have families, so what are we going to watch?”

Matt LeBlanc responded similarly when speaking to the Daily Mail in 2018.

“I don’t want to do it […] People want to know what happened to them. But it was about a finite period in a person’s life after college, before you settle down and start a family,” he explained. “To go back and revisit all these years later, well I don’t know what the story would be now. They would all have moved on from that period, so it just wouldn’t be the same.”
