On January 29, 2024, Werkheiser shared a photo on his Instagram story featuring him and Lindsey Shaw, who portrayed Jennifer “Moze” Mosely, with Werkheiser’s hand resting on Shaw’s belly. The caption, “Little Ned 2024,” led fans to believe that the two former co-stars were expecting a child. Speculation ran rampant, with some enthusiasts even considering the possibility of a revival or spin-off chronicling the adventures of Ned and his friends in middle school.

The Jest Unveiled

Contrary to fans’ expectations, the photo was not an announcement of a pregnancy but a well-executed prank. Werkheiser and Shaw, through their podcast ‘Ned’s Declassified Podcast Survival Guide,’ revealed that the intention was to generate excitement for their upcoming project. The duo clarified that they remain good friends but are not romantically involved, putting to rest any speculations about a rekindled romance.
