The first series of The Morning Show, which premiered on Apple's very own streaming service, Apple TV+, was a hugely popular talking point in the world of TV, so it's no wonder that the show is returning for its second season. The return of the programme was confirmed by Apple just one week after the first season's release. As well as being loved by viewers, the critics loved the show too, and its leading stars, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, both received high praise. And it seems that one of the shows stars is loving being back on set.

The mum-of-three stars alongside Jennifer Anniston in the Apple TV show.

Before the first season aired, Jennifer, who won the Screen Actors Guild Award for her role in the show, and Reese, who won the Golden Globe award for Best Actress for her role, both spoke openly about the characters they portray. "My character has a lot of rage," explained Jennifer. "I have meltdowns, which were really fun to do because as a rule I just don’t do that in my personal life." On playing Bradley, who is keen to take over from Alex's job, Reese told The Graham Norton Show: "I had meltdowns a lot, but mine were very close to the surface. I have three kids!"

Although the release date of series two is yet to be revealed, Jennifer opened up about what to expect following real-life accusations about NBC host Matt Lauer, who fans have compared to Steve Carell's character. Chatting to People at the NYC premiere of the first season, Jennifer said: "We're just now sort of figuring out what that looks like, because it's not such an easy thing. Everybody has kind of had to step back, take a break, refocus, and now we will start those conversations."
