Reese Witherspoon confirms Legally Blonde prequel series


A Legally Blonde series is just what we need

We thought we were getting a third Legally Blonde movie, but a series is actually underway.

Gossip Girl and The OC fans will be thrilled to hear that the show is being written by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.

There’s no doubt the show will be a major hit but fans are unsure if the reported third movie will ever be made.

Reese Witherspoon confirmed the TV series news in a post on Instagram:

“Before she became the most famous Gemini vegetarian to graduate from Harvard Law, she was just a regular ‘90s high school girl. And all of you are going to get to know her, next year on @primevideo,” she wrote.


A third movie was reportedly in the works in 2021 with a 2022 release date in mind but it looks like the series will replace another film.

In 2021, Pamela Adby, an MGM executive told The Hollywood Reporter that the film was set to following Elle Woods at 40.

“It’s really happening. Mindy Kaling and Dan [Goor] are writing it now for Reese [Witherspoon] to star.”

“Reese and Lauren Neustadter are producing with Marc Platt. We’re all developing it together,” she added.

“What does Elle Woods look like at 40?” Adby asked. “Elle is a mum with a thriving career. We’re looking forward to seeing the script come in sometime in the first quarter [of 2022.]”
