A LEGALLY BLONDE Spinoff Series Is in the Works at Amazon


Is it wise to mess with blonde perfection? Legally speaking? Well, we suppose we can make an exception if the head blonde in charge herself is involved. Reese Witherspoon and her Hello Sunshine company are teaming up with Amazon to create at least one, and maybe more, Legally Blonde spinoff series. We don’t know much about these Legally Blonde shows yet. And there’s no word about whether Witherspoon will don her signature locks and reprise her role as Elle Woods, either. But we’re excited to find out more.


Deadline shares, “One offshoot, which is further along in the development process, is being written by Gossip Girl developers/executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.” Additionally, it notes that Amazon’s acquisition of MGM made this further IP exploration possible. We suppose Gossip Girl‘s helmers would make good sense here. Especially if the spinoff series explores Elle Woods’ earlier days as a Delta Nu or even the story of Brooke Taylor-Windham and her fitness empire. It certainly feels like Legally Blonde‘s universe has more than one juicy story. But the most important part will be to keep that smart edge of wit and humor alive.

One thing is for sure: we have our fingers crossed that we’ll see more of Jennifer Coolidge’s Paulette Bonafonté Parcelle in the Legally Blonde spinoff series. Coolidge has seemingly been everywhere in recent years, but Legally Blonde was my first introduction to her. And her character was perfect. We’d also love to see some kind of updated version of the bend and snap or maybe its origin story. And, of course, the spinoff series must have more of Legally Blonde‘s famous pup, Bruiser.

In any case, Legally Blonde, the original, is pure perfection, butwe trust Witherspoon knows what she’s doing. Welcome to Prime Video and the land of spinoff series, Elle Woods.
