The sitcom icon, whose latest TV comedy Man With A Plan was canceled a couple of years ago, added: ‘Sorry, I’ll let you know when I do.’

Jennifer at the moment is starring on the Apple TV+ drama The Morning Show opposite Reese Witherspoon – who guest-starred as her sister on Friends.

Meanwhile Courteney is one of the leads of the horror series Shining Vale, amid a cast that includes Oscar winner Mira Sorvino and Oscar nominee Greg Kinnear.

Lisa on the other hand is among the cast of Space Force, a Netflix comedy co-created by Steve Carrell, who also plays the lead.

Since then he has starred on multiple other sitcoms, beginning with a short-lived spin-off of Friends entitled just Joey.

He won critical acclaim for starring as a parody of himself on Episodes, a British-American series co-created by David Crane, who also helped create Friends.

Most recently he starred as a contractor and head of a family on the CBS sitcom Man With A Plan, which ran from 2016 until 2020.

Although he is currently indulging in a bit of downtime, Matt has not been averse to reuniting with his Friends co-stars in the past.

He memorably guest-starred on one of Lisa’s previous sitcoms Web Therapy, where she played a psychiatrist who conducts five-minute sessions over video-chat.

Last summer Matt and all his Friends co-stars got back together for an HBO Max reunion special controversially hosted by James Corden.
