No need to "say a little prayer!" One of your all-time favorite '90's romantic comedies is officially making its TV debut! My Best Friend's Wedding, the 1997 classic starring Julia Roberts, is getting its own TV series spin-off on ABC. And, full disclosure, we're a little too excited about it.
In case you need a rom-com refresher course, My Best Friend's Wedding follows the '90's romantic comedy queen Roberts as Julianne, a 27-year-old New Yorker who loves her blazers, slacks, and best friend Michael (played by Dermot Mulroney) — whom is on the cusp of getting married, despite the pact the pair made to wed each other if they were both still single by age 28.
The retro bridesmaid dresses, famed musical number, all that juicy romantic tension... Ugh, can we just marry this movie?! Whether you were in the camp who wished Michael would've run away with Julianne, leaving his 20-year-old bride (Cameron Diaz) at the altar, or the group who accepted that he was never truly in love with Julianne (as if those people exist...), you're totally going to want to RSVP to this TV sequel!
According to E! News, the new TV series will pick up right where the film left off, focusing on Julianne and her friend George (Rupert Everett) as their navigate their lives in New York City. Best of all? The show will be penned by Ron Bass — the writer of the film's screenplay — so you know it's bound to stay true to all that nostalgic-goodness of the original!
Can't wait? Neither can we! Something tells us it's definitely time for a rom-com movie marathon with your bridesmaids...
