Somers appeared less on the show after failed contract negotiations and she left in 1980; Jenilee Harrison came on the series as Chrissy’s cousin Cindy Snow. She was then replaced by Priscilla Barnes as Terri Alden. 

The series ended in 1984.

Aniston played Rachel Green opposite Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc. The Friends reunion was a big hit this spring for HBOMax.

On Sunday Cox also shared a selfie to Instagram showing her with Kudrow and Aniston as they celebrated the July 4 holiday.

In the snap, the former co-stars posed against the backdrop of a scenic beach photo and large windows opening onto a tennis court.

As Cox, 57, took the picture, Aniston placed one hand on the back of her head as she wore sunglasses perched on top of her tousled streaked blonde hair.

Kudrow, 57, smiled into the lens while wearing a large floppy straw sunhat over her long blonde hair while Cox also wore her dark locks loose.

In a second photo she shared online, Cox revealed that Laura Dern, 54, was also at the Independence Day get together.

Cox, Kudrow and Aniston were catapulted to stardom when Friends premiered in September 1994.

The three, along with their male co-stars became overnight sensations around the world.

The sitcom ran for 10 seasons, ending in May 2004. 

For the last two seasons, the cast negotiated a fee of $1 million per episode and that made Cox, Kudrow and Aniston the highest paid women on TV ever at the time.
