Page Six says that Tina Fey has signed on to seem in her authentic function, however Rachel, Lindsay, Amanda, and Lacey, who’ve remained in contact through the years, agreed to seem in new roles. Nonetheless, since Paramount+ is being tighter than Regina George’s pants after a month of Kälteen bars, they won’t seem in any respect.

Have the execs not seen Lindsay’s breakthrough efficiency in Falling For Christmas? Er, really, hopefully they haven’t.
The foursome wouldn’t play their authentic characters, neither is it recognized what elements they might play, however one other Hollywood insider stated: “Whether or not they seem in a cameo look or they’ve six pages of script, it doesn’t matter — [the money offered] is disrespectful.”
