In a recent Essence.com interview promoting her new BET sitcom Reed Between the Lines, Tracee Ellis Ross was eventually asked about her old days on the CW sitcom Girlfriends.
At the risk of getting anyone’s hopes up, she seemed hopeful about a possible Girlfriends film in the future, but placed the responsibility squarely on fans to make it happen:
“[A reunion] is not on the radar, but I would love to do a “Girlfriends” movie. How much fun would it be to see what happens between Joan and Toni? Does Joan ever get married? I want to know!
“The Game” got back on the air because of the fans, so I don’t know what all you people are waiting for, we need you.”
Could Ross be indicating an online petition, perhaps a letter-writing campaign to the Hollywood powers that be? It’s unclear, but apparently the ball is in our court.
Alright, Girlfriends stans, who’s willing to lead the charge?
