Twenty-one years (and counting) had to pass for a Freaky Friday sequel to come to fruition.

While visiting Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show, Lindsay Lohan confirmed that there is a sequel for the iconic 2003 film being worked on — though she refused to get into details about when it will come.

“Lindsay, there are rumors that a Freaky Friday sequel with you and Jamie Lee Curtis could be in the works. Is there anything you can tell us about that?” Andy Cohen asked.

“It is,” Lohan responded briefly before a giggle.

Cohen then pressed about a timeline, to which Lohan said: “I won’t say that yet…I don’t want to say too much.” Lohan continued by confirming the news, adding, “We’re both excited! I’m gonna speak for Jamie.”

Last May, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that a sequel was officially in development with a script in the works. Curtis and Lohan are expected to return to their roles as Anna and Tess Coleman, respectively, after 20 years.

In an early 2023 interview with the New York Times, Curtis also revealed that she made a call to Disney right after she completed her press tour for Halloween Ends, during which she was repeatedly asked about the possibility of a Freaky Friday sequel actually happening.

“Something really touched a chord,” she said. “When I came back, I called my friends at Disney and said, ‘It feels like there’s a movie to be made.’”

Lohan added: “Jamie and I are both open to that, so we’re leaving it in the hands that be. We would only make something that people would absolutely adore.”

Freaky Friday, released in 2003, was based on Mary Rodgers’ 1972 novel of the same name and had already been adapted twice before Curtis and Lohan stepped into the mother-daughter duo roles. The 1976 adaptation starred Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster, and the 1995 version starred Shelley Long and Gaby Hoffman.
