Jennifer Aniston Says Friends Cast Is 'Working On Something'
Jennifer Aniston has revealed the cast of Friends are 'working on something' together - which inevitably has got fans of the sitcom very excited indeed.
However, the 50-year-old was keen to emphasise that the 'something' would not be a Friends reboot.
Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the actor was asked whether there would be a reboot of the show, to which she swiftly replied, 'No', prompting a mass sigh from the audience.
Seemingly keen to placate the masses, Aniston added: "Listen, we would love for there to be something, but we don't know what that something is.
"So we're just trying really, we're working on something."
Ellen then attempted to de-vague this mysterious project a little bit and asked whether 'something' might be a movie.
Aniston sarcastically replied: "A huge, huge, huge, movie. No, we don't know.
"I don't want to lead people on."
Well it's a bit late for that now, isn't it?
The actor got people well and truly worked up about the prospect of a reunion earlier this month when she shared her first Instagram post - a picture of herself alongside former co-stars Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer.

If you are a Friends fan and you're clinging to the reunion snap and the fact Aniston said the cast are 'working on something' rather than listening to the fact she said a reboot isn't happening - then let this quote from the show's co-creator, Marta Kauffman, thoroughly p**s all over your bonfire.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, she said: "There are several reasons [why there won't be a Friends reunion]. 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.
"Two, I 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'."
Surely even the most die-hard fans of the show must admit it's hard to argue with Kauffman's point.
You can still get a fresh fix of TV featuring Aniston though, as she stars in new series, The Morning Show, alongside Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carrell.
The show will stream on Apple TV+ and drops on 1 November.
