Kudrow said the castmates — Jennifer Aniston (who plays Rachel Greene), Courteney Cox (Monica Geller), Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani), Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing) and David Schwimme (Ross Geller) started thinking about getting together when they the show’s success on Netflix.

The show’s co-creators Marta Kaufman and David Crane also agreed, Kudrow said.
