Back in October 2019, Witherspoon wouldn’t confirm that the highly anticipated sequel was definitely happening. 

“It’s just a development project right now, so we’ll see,” Witherspoon explained to ET. “I love Jennifer Coolidge and Luke Wilson and Selma Blair and so there’s so many great characters that people love… If we end up doing it, hopefully they end up all being there.”

This past May, it was announced that Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor had been tapped to pen the script for the sequel.
