Drew Barrymore is celebrating Season 2 of The Drew Barrymore Show by paying homage to New York City's iconic romantic comedies.

On Tuesday, the 46-year-old actress shared a trailer for her talk show on Instagram, calling it "Our love letter to New York via movies we love," as she recreated scenes from films like Working Girl, Sex and the City 3 and Sleepless in Seattle.

In the sketch, Barrymore also hilariously performed her version of Meg Ryan's famous fake orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally alongside her show's crew members.

Ryan played Sally Albright in the 1998 movie while Billy Crystal played Harry Burns — two friends who end up falling in love. At one point, Crystal's character says he doesn't believe any of the women he's slept with have ever faked an orgasm and Sally proves him wrong by staging a very convincing orgasm in the middle of a deli.

Following Barrymore's video, fans flooded the comments with laughing emojis and raved over her spot-on trailer.

"Those costumes were DEAD ON perfect!❤️," one Instagram user wrote. Another person said, "This is so cool!! You and your team nailed it Drew!! 😂❤️."

Speaking with PEOPLE ahead of her talk show's inaugural season last year, Barrymore said that she was most excited "to be in a job where I don't have to play a character. I just get to be myself."

"But I still have to prove myself. And I love that," she added. "If we come at this as students, I think that's kind of the right tone for me, because I tend to also shy away from soapboxes or know-it-alls. I know everything is a work in progress, for me at least."

The actress also shared that she was looking forward to connecting with her audience in a new light.

"I get to do things that I care about," she said. "I get to share things that are important to me. I get to have conversations that are meaningful and grounded in reality. I get to bring comedy and humor. It's funny, I always say in late night, you get that permission because everybody lived their life and you did a good job. 'We're going to put you to bed with some laughs.' Uh-uh, I want to start the day that way."
