Jennifer Aniston is officially a member of Instagram. 

The Friends actress joined Instagram Tuesday morning and shared a selfie with her former co-stars -- Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer. 

Now, that's how you make an entrance, right?

Many celebrities flocked to join Instagram the moment the service went live, but Aniston decided against following the crowd ... until now. 

The photo in question is blurry, and we don't quite know when or where it was taken, but still, it's a new photo featuring the beloved cast of one of the most popular series in the world. 

"And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM," she captioned the photo. 

The last time we saw much of the cast together was on NBC’s Must-See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows in Feb. 2016. Perry was absent, thanks to a work commitment.

Friends originally aired from 1994-2004 and spanned ten seasons. It still lives on through syndication and streaming, and it's not difficult to understand why. 

It was filled with laughs, but don't expect an official reunion to come about. Even though many shows are returning to the air thanks to the current trend in Hollywood, it appears that Friends had its last laugh in 2004.

The show's co-creator, Marta Kauffman, said in a recent interview that there are many reasons why the show will never return to the air. 

“There are several reasons,” Kauffman told Rolling Stone in March.

“One, the show is about a time in your life when your friends are your family. It’s not that time anymore. All we’d be doing is putting those six actors back together, but the heart of the show would be gone.”

She added, “I [also] don’t know what good it does us. The show is doing just fine, people love it. [A reunion] could only disappoint. ‘The One Where Everyone’s Disappointed.’”

Some shows are meant to stay in the past so that the legacy can live on. Thanks to streaming, many new fans have found Friends.

Heck, there are even reports that Instagram had trouble keeping up with the demand for people to follow Aniston. 

All of these stars remain household names.
