Reese Witherspoon and her colleague Jennifer Aniston were hard at work on Thursday filming scenes for their popular Apple TV+ series The Morning Show.

The 46-year-old “Big Little Lies” actress and the 53-year-old “Friends” star were both seen arriving on the set of the show in Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood before getting down to business.

Though they appeared to be in high spirits, the two assumed somber faces as they filmed what appeared to be a tense two-person scene.

The Morning Show stars are currently filming the third season of the acclaimed drama. They appear as dueling anchors of a fictional national morning news show in the series.

Jennifer plays Alex Levy, who co-hosts The Morning Show with Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell), who is fired in the first season while being gripped by allegations of sexual misconduct.

He’s replaced by impulsive local news correspondent Bradley Jackson (Reese) after some of their stories garnered national attention.

Both actresses were seen arriving on set in their own clothes.

Reese wore an olive waffle-print down coat over a low-key black top and matching black pants.

She accessorized the look with crisp white sneakers and carried a white handbag with blue, green and red stripes down the center.

Jennifer was seen curling up in an SUV while wearing a black top, which she tucked into loose-fitting navy blue jeans.

She wore pointed black suede boots that complemented her long black coat with shiny satin lapels.

The Horrible Bosses actress also sported a gray tassel scarf and carried a brown leather handbag.

Later, she and Reese were featured in their costumes, although the nature of their characters meant their costumes could have passed for their own clothes.

The Legally Blonde star beamed from ear to ear as she descended a set of steps on set in a beautiful royal blue coat, and she swapped out her white handbag for a larger powder blue design.

She wore her long blonde tresses that were parted down the middle and cascaded down her back, and she elevated her 5ft1 stature with a gleaming pair of silver heels.

Her caramel-colored hair was noticeably tousled as she prepared for her performance with Reese.

Reese and Jennifer almost fell in each other’s face at one point, though it wasn’t clear if their characters were having a fight or reacting to bad news.

Jennifer was gesturing with her hands and even looking angry at various points.

She and Reese have been working hard since The Morning Show returned in August to film its third season.

In its final season, Mad Men star Jon Hamm will join the series as a regular cast member.

His character, Paul Marks, is described as a corporate titan who targets the fictional network that airs The Morning Show.

On Wednesday, he and Jennifer were photographed at Coney Island in Brooklyn filming more scenes for the series.

His casting is tongue-in-cheek, as Hamm filmed a comedic ad for Apple TV+ earlier this year, in which he angrily scrolled through the streamer’s films and TV shows, complaining that he wasn’t among the famous faces.

He even stopped to watch a segment of The Morning Show.

‘Jen and Reese; No Jon! Feels like a missed opportunity!’ he cried. It’s not clear if his casting, which was announced in August, was discussed prior to filming the commercial, which ultimately earned an Emmy nomination.

Reese and her co-star Billy Crudup, who plays the network’s CEO on The Morning Show, have received Emmy nominations for the series, as has Marcia Gay Harden, who guest-starred as a journalist in the second season.

Nicole Beharie, who starred in the film Miss Juneteenth and the thriller series Sleepy Hollow, also joins the show for its third season.

Although fictional, The Morning Show is inspired by Brian Stelter’s 2013 non-fiction book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV.
