After nearly three decades, there's another reunion in store for Romy and Michele. Mira Sorvino, who starred in the beloved 1997 film with Lisa Kudrow, confirmed that a sequel to Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion is in the works and that all the puzzle pieces are about to fall into place. There's only one snag — Emily in Paris. Robin Schiff, the writer behind the OG Romy and Michele, is currently working on Netflix's hit series and that project is the only hurdle keeping the Romy and Michele team from getting everything going.

“She’s currently working on Emily in Paris, so she’s finishing up her draft to present to the studio,” Sorvino told Us Weekly. “Lisa [Kudrow] and I are wrapping up our deals as executive producers on it with the studio. We’re full force ahead.”

In addition to Sorvino and Kudrow, the film starred Janeane Garofalo, Alan Cumming, Julia Campbell, Vincent Ventresca, Elaine Hendrix, Justin Theroux, and Camryn Manheim.

Though she didn't reveal much about the plot of the movie, Sorvino did tell Us where she envisioned everyone's favorite BFFs 40 years after their high school graduation. The first film chronicled their 10-year reunion and, of course, had the titular characters making up jobs and claiming to have invented Post-Its.

“I just still want [Romy and Michele] to be as relatable, but also as dumb and lovable as they ever were. Like, I don’t think they’ve learned that much in the time in between, but they still have that unstoppable spirit and that friendship and that idiocy that makes everybody kind of love them," Sorvino said. "And so, that essential nature of them and the heart that’s at the center of that, that heart has to stay there."
