It's Official: Jennifer Aniston to Visit Courteney Cox in 'Cougar Town'

Courteney Cox and Jennifer AnistonA 'Friends' reunion is definitely happening this year -- on ABC's 'Cougar Town,' at least.

The network announced today that Jennifer Aniston will join fellow Friend Courteney Cox in the season 2 premiere of Cox's 'Cougar Town,' set to air on Sept. 22 at 9:30PM ET. This marks the first small screen reunion for the longtime pals since Cox's last TV venture, the FX series 'Dirt.'

Show creator Bill Lawrence told EW.com that Aniston will play Jules' psychiatrist, Bonnie.

"[She's] kind of a get-too-involved-in-her-life-type of therapist," Lawrence said. "Those guys are so close in real life they kind of do that for each other anyway. Bonnie has the life Jules wishes she has."

Although Aniston is only booked for one episode, Lawrence said the role has potential for more.

"We're very intentionally implying that it's a therapist Courteney has been using for a while, and we're certainly not going to make it like they'll never see each other again," he said. "So I'm crossing my fingers that if she has a good time it'll happen again."

Because Cox and Aniston are such good real life friends, Lawrence said they've been talking about Aniston guesting on the show for a while.

"It took us a while to find the show," he said. "And once we did and once it was clicking, I think that not only did Courteney feel comfortable talking to Jen about doing it, but comfortable in how funny she thinks the show is and that Jen would like it and fit into this world really well."

Aniston isn't the only former Friend to stop by the Florida-set sitcom. Lisa Kudrow memorably played the kinda-catty dermatologist of Cox's Jules in a season 1 ep.
