For years, fans of 2004's Mean Girls have been begging for a sequel, and it seems that a couple of the classic comedy's stars are pushing for one, too.

Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Seyfried discussed their hopes for the sought-after follow-up in a conversation published Wednesday by Interview Magazine.

Seyfried steered their discussion from banter about career goals and rom-coms—Lohan appears in the Netflix original Falling for Christmas—to chat about whether Mean Girls 2 will ever get made.

"I would kill just to do one week, all of us playing our own roles on Mean Girls on Broadway," Seyfried said.

"That would be really fun," Lohan replied.

Next, Seyfried posed the million-dollar question: "Because a Mean Girls 2 is never going to happen, is it?"

"I don't know," Lohan said. "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."

Seyfried agreed, adding that the film's writer, Tina Fey, has a lot on her plate.

"Anyway, Tina is busy. She'll get around to it," she added. "Listen, we're all part of each other's worlds whether we like it or not, and it is really nice to be in contact as adults."

Lohan answered a question about a potential Mean Girls sequel in another interview this month. Speaking on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, she said that such a film would be in the hands of Fey and producer Lorne Michaels.

The 2004 flick brought in nearly $24.5 million during its opening weekend but overall has generated more than $130 million worldwide. It also got turned into a musical that made its way to Broadway in 2018.

The musical toured across North America, and Fey and Michaels have teamed for an upcoming film adaptation of Mean Girls the Musical.

Another Mean Girls star, Lizzy Caplan, recently celebrated Lohan's comeback in an interview with Grazia USA.

"I am so on board with this return of Lindsay Lohan. I'm just pumped," she said. "She was such an incredible talent when she was working as a kid and a young adult so I'm happy to see that she's coming back."

Some fans may note that ABC Family premiered a sequel to Mean Girls in 2011, but the only actor from the original cast to return was Tim Meadows. The TV film was later released direct-to-video.

Newsweek reached out to representatives for Lohan and Seyfried for additional comment.
