This is so fetch! Amanda Seyfried might have let it slip that there's a chance of a 'Mean Girls' sequel or reunion - either works for us. After cast members spoke to Interview magazine, questions are now on the rise about whether the plastics will ever come back together as one force. Here's what we know. 

Are we about to return to North Shore High School? Since Amanda Seyfriend (Karen Smith) and Lindsey Lohan (Cady Haren) spoke with an Interview representative, we can't help but dream of the day Tina Fey starts crafting some ideas. The ultimate comedy/teen film was released in 2004 and welcomed a cult following. There simply had never been anything like it before, and audiences were drawn into a world of high school cliques, entering the girl world, and of course, the brutality of cliche mean girls. Though it's not based on a true story, Tina Fey admitted to The New York Times she knew how to perfectly imitate real-life events. She said, "I revisited high school behaviors of my own — futile, poisonous, bitter behaviors that served no purpose." Though, the only purpose it did serve was pure satisfaction for all cast members, specifically Seyfried and Lohan.

Despite a sequel already being out there, Mean Girls 2 did not live up to critics' standards. The only cast member who reprised their role was Tim Meadows, who returned as Principal Ron Duvall. When speaking with Interview, Seyfried teased, "I would kill just to do one week, all of us playing our own roles on Mean Girls on Broadway... Because a Mean Girls 2 is never going to happen, is it?" Lohan responded, saying, "I don't know. I heard something about it being a movie musical, and I was like, 'Oh no.' We can't do that. It has to be the same tone." I mean, we could have done with a song adaptation of 'You Can't Sit With Us!' But we'll get over it. Still, Seyfriend made it clear Fey is busy right now, but hopefully, "she'll get round to it." If it helps, the actors confirmed to still be in contact with each other and blissfully reminisced on the fact they have memories they "can't share with anyone else." 

Although we might not be watching the ultimate reunion between Cady Heron and Regina George, we still have the memory of junior plastics embedded into our minds. On the contrary, if Tina Fey doesn't pull through, at least we have Lohan's hilarious tribute to tie us over for now. Stay Tuned!
