By Zach Harper

If you're feeling like white open-toed shoes after Labour Day, we have some good news for you: A new report says Legally Blonde 3 is definitely happening, and Mindy Kaling has signed on to write it!

If you're worried about whether Reese Witherspoon will return as the razor sharp, utterly hilarious lawyer Elle Woods, don't be: She will reprise the role! Mindy will work with Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Dan Goor on the script, according to Deadline.

It's not known if Luke Wilson is involved, but he's expressed interest in starring in a third instalment of the beloved series of films.

"Reese is so funny that I'd go back in a second and do it," he told Sirius XM's The Michael Yo Show in February.

Of course, it's also not known when the production will begin shooting, considering many studios are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. But this is fantastic news for any fan of the first two films.

Legally Blonde was a smash hit and has become a cult classic since it came out in 2001. It inspired a sequel, spin-off and a musical. Reese has reportedly been in discussions with MGM to produce the third film since 2018.

It's going to be just like senior year, only funnier!
