Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde saw Elle head to Washington DC to take her law career even further, and fans are surely curious to see what she’s been up to since then. Legally Blonde 3 can fill in those blanks and bring an early 2000s franchise into the present day. Hopefully the threequel will manage to fit in some familiar faces, like Jennifer Coolidge’s Paulette and Luke Wilson’s Emmett, particularly since he and Elle got married at the end of Red, White & Blonde. Now that it has a new date, Legally Blonde 3 can make some real progress going forward.
Tuesday night, the same night a Legally Blonde 20-year reunion went live, MGM Studios revealed Legally Blonde 3 is officially slated for release in May 2022. Exactly when it will arrive in that month remains to be seen, but if it follows its onetime 2020 date, it will be earlier in the month (it had been scheduled for May 8). The studio shared the news with a GIF of Elle, and the tagging of Witherspoon confirms she’ll be returning.
