Actress Reese Witherspoon says she is “really excited” for a new series of Legally Blonde, which premieres next year.

Amazon Prime Video confirmed that the Elle-themed series was in development earlier this week.

It will follow Witherspoon’s character Elle Woods before the events of Legally Blonde.

The star will produce the show, but it has not yet been announced who will play teenager Elle Woods.

In a video clip shared on Instagram, Witherspoon can be seen getting dressed and applying pink lipstick before waving a “Top Secret” text message before pitching Amazon Prime Video to advertisers.

“Before she became the most famous Gemini vegetarian to graduate from Harvard Law School, she was just a regular high school girl in the 1990s,” she wrote.

“And you’ll all get to see it next year on Prime Video. I’m so excited!”

The original version of Legally Blonde saw Woods accepted into Harvard Law School in search of her estranged boyfriend.

While studying there, Woods discovers that she has more to offer than her appearance and proves that she has the makings of a highly competent lawyer.
