A good show (or movie, for that matter) can stick with you for months, years, and even decades after you first watch it. In fact, when a show comes to an end, or a character gets killed off, or a movie series finally ends, it can be tough to say goodbye to the characters you've grown to love.

Which is why seeing cast reunions years later is always so much fun. Here are some times when celeb costars gave the fans what they wanted.

Rebel Wilson and Adam Devine.

Playing on-screen couple Fat Amy and Bumper in the Pitch Perfect movies, it was nice to see the two of them reunite at the Super Bowl last year.

Jennifer Garner and Judy Greer.

13 Going on 30 costars Jennifer Garner and Judy Greer got together early 2021 (pandemic notwithstanding) and snapped a pic, masks and all. It's almost enough to make you want to see them star in a sequel together.

Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo.

Let the 13 Going on 30 reunions keep coming. This time, it's Garner and Ruffalo, who played love interest opposite one another, who have reunited for The Adam Project, a film that came out earlier this year.

The cast of 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.'

Back in 2020, Will Smith and the rest of the gang got back together to celebrate the show's 30th anniversary. It's still kind of wild how the 90s were 30 years ago now.

Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston.

It's nice to know that the Friends costars are actually friends in real life. Cox and Aniston got together in 2020 to snap a pic with Cox's two dogs, and more than a couple of masks.

Yanic Truesdale and Melissa McCarthy.

They may have gotten on each other's nerves in Gilmore Girls, but McCarthy and Truesdale are pretty amiable in real life. This 2021 pic is really making me hope for another season of the iconic show (even if that might be too much to ask).

Kate Hudson and Kathryn Hahn.

It's nice to see the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days besties coming together once again.

In her post, Hudson wrote, "If we can’t get Kathryn Hahn on @instagram then I’ll just keep having her take these pics with her selfie face and post them myself!"

Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny.

Sure, it hasn't been that long since The X-Files ended for good, but that doesn't mean we don't miss Mulder and Scully's adventures! I guess this shaky, dog-filled selfie fest will have to do.

Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa.

It feels like a lifetime's passed since Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen have been on screen together. But it's nice to know that Momoa can still bench press Clarke, even if that was never up for debate.

January Jones, Christina Hendricks, and Kiernan Shipka.

The three appeared on Mad Men together, and it's absolutely wild to see Shipka, who played Jones's daughter during the show's run, all grown up and actually able to go out for a girls night.

Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd.

There's really never a bad time for a Back to the Future reunion. The pair took time last August to snap a pic in a golf cart. Not a DeLorean, but close enough.

Paolo Montalban and Brandy.

1997's Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella is a movie that definitely needs to be talked about more. But it's fine, because costars Brandy and Paolo Montalban came back together last year and made all our dreams come true.

Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

The Modern Family on-screen couple seemingly met up by chance in a series of heartwarming Instagram photos and videos. Hopefully they won't have to wait so long to see each other next time.

Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton and Bethany Joy Lenz.

Seeing these One Tree Hill costars actively recreate old photos from their time on the show is actually really heartwarming. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

That's right, there are even more One Tree Hill reunions out there! It almost makes you wish they'd go ahead and revive the show, but I guess you can't always get what you want.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons.

It's so weird to see Anderson-Emmons, who was a literal toddler during her first season of Modern Family, as a teenager now. I'm sure Ferguson feels like a proud dad, even if they aren't actually father and daughter.

Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler.

It hasn't been a super long time since the first Murder Mystery movie came out, but it's still exciting to see Aniston and Sandler back on set. I wonder when that film will come out...

Penn Badgley and Leighton Meester.

Remember that really weird time in Gossip Girl where Dan and Blair dated? Yep, that happened. Though, it doesn't make this reunion between Badgley and Meester any less exciting to see.

Laura Leighton, Daphne Zuniga, and Courtney Thorne-Smith.

This trio of actresses from Melrose Place came together earlier this year for a hang. Leighton posted the pics to Facebook, writing, "We’ve been friends for nearly 30 years, with so many fun, shared memories from our time together on Melrose Place."

Melinda Clarke, Tate Donovan, and Mischa Barton.

Another really cute family reunion, this time for The O.C.. Clarke posted this pic to Instagram just a few weeks ago, with a caption that says, "SO THIS HAPPENED! Cooper family reunion! Warmed my heart to see these two."
