Jennifer Aniston says she and her former Friends co-stars are “working on something” together.

The actor was asked about a possible reunion on Monday during an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’s show.

While she said that a reboot of the sitcom wouldn’t happen, she said she and Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer were trying to figure out a joint project.

“We would love for there to be something, but we don’t know what that something is,” she said.

“So we’re just trying – we’re working on something.”

When DeGeneres pressed her for more specifics, including whether this secret project could be a movie, Aniston declined to provide more information.

“I don’t want to lead people on,” she said.

The actor, who was being interviewed at the same time as singer Charlie Puth, recently joined Instagram and shared a selfie with her five former co-stars as her very first post on the platform.

“We did that because we miss each other and we all happened to be in the same part of the world,” she said.

Puth, however, said he had interpreted the selfie as a sign that “there’s something in the works” for the former Friends cast.

There was a televised reunion of sorts in 2016, but Perry was missing on that occasion.
