Legally Blonde the film came out in 2001, commencing a butterfly effect that resulted in the single greatest, most-colon’d piece of art of our time: the 2008 MTV reality-competition program Legally Blonde: The Musical: The Search for Elle Woods, in which ten under-30-year-olds were subjected to physical and psychological torture in order to play Elle Woods in the musical adaptation of Legally Blonde on Broadway. And, well, it’s time for a remount. Prime Video has announced a Legally Blonde prequel series titled Elle, produced by Reese Witherspoon’s production company, Hello Sunshine. According to a press release, Elle will follow a high-school-age Elle Woods “as we learn about the life experiences that shaped her into the iconic young woman we came to know and love.” That’s incredibly vague, and we’re sad to think of a Legally Blonde property without Paulette, but we are choosing to channel our inner Elle Woods and be optimistic about the series anyway.

“I truly couldn’t be more excited about this series!” Witherspoon said in a statement. “Fans will get to know how Elle Woods navigated her world as a teenager with her distinct personality and ingenuity, in ways that only our beloved Elle could do. What could be better than that?!” Well, Reese, we actually have an answer: What could be better is a reality competition in which 20-year-olds must fight to play Elle Woods. It worked for Madonna … kind of.
