Reese Witherspoon Shares Candid New Pics from ‘The Morning Show’ Set

Reese Witherspoon just shared a series of photos from the set of The Morning Show, and all we have to say is…same.

Yesterday, the 43-year-old actress posted a slideshow of candid pics on her personal Instagram account, featuring the moment a deliciously salted pretzel changed her life. (Not really, but you get the idea.)

The slideshow has three photos—the first shows Witherspoon casually holding a pretzel, followed by a snap of her taking a bite. The final pic shows the actress’s reaction to the carb-filled treat, and well, her face says it all.

She captioned the post, “I call this series ‘the joy of carbs’ @themorningshow,” along with a pretzel emoji.

Although a release date has yet to be announced, The Morning Show is set to premiere sometime this fall on the new streaming service, Apple TV+. Not much is known about the plot, though the first-look trailer gives us an idea of what to expect.

The beginning of the clip features seasoned TV anchor Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston) revealing some “sad” and “upsetting” news: Her husband and co-host, Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell), has been fired after indisputable allegations were filed against him.

As a result, the TV station undergoes an “epic rebirth” and brings in a young new reporter, Bradley Jackson (Witherspoon), who becomes Alex’s right-hand gal.  

So, what do carbs have to do with The Morning Show? We have absolutely no idea, but we’re all for it.
