Romy And Michele Sequel Is Getting 'Closer To Happening'

Romy and Michele's High School Reunion is one of the 90s' most iconic feel-good films, and it could be getting a sequel!

Yes, we see more of the hilarious pair a quarter of a century after we saw the dynamic duo go to extreme lengths to prepare for their high school reunion. Watch below:


The news was confirmed by the film's stars, Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow, in two separate interviews where they revealed that a sequel was in development. 

However, it is worth noting that we could still have some time to wait to see the pair again as the idea for the sequel hasn’t even been finalised by the original screenwriter, Robin Schiff.

“There's nothing official to report but I can unofficially hint that we're closer than we've ever been to getting something to happen,” Sorvino told EW

She added: “Every other time I've appeared I would be like, ‘Come on please, let's do something,' and now I'm like, ‘Okay, okay, we're getting closer.’ So very excited.”

“I can’t say anything, but something might be in the works!”

It turns out that both actresses are very much in the loop when it comes to a potential sequel as Sorvino’s statement was backed up by Kurdrow just hours later. 

She explained on SiriusXM that Schiff is 'thinking about it and coming up with something'.

While the original film was released in 1997, Variety reports, the characters actually made their debut as part of a 1988 play starring Kudrow. 

The original incarnation was called Ladies’ Room

We recently saw the pair recreate the iconic characters at the 2022 SAG Awards where they dressed up in matching pink and blue suits - channelling the outfits they wore to their high school reunion.

Kurdrow asked Sorvino: “Do you think that this is the cutest anyone has ever looked at an awards show?”

“I just realised this, we’re wearing great ensembles while at the same time presenting to great ensembles,” she replied. 

In case your memory needs refreshing, the original film follows the lives of two outwardly unsuccessfully 28-year-olds who, when invited to their 10-year high school reunion, decide to come up with elaborate backstories about everything they’ve achieved to impress their peers - like, hilariously, having invented the post-it note.
