Will Clueless 2 Ever Happen?

In the current cultural landscape, sequels and reboots are a dime a dozen. In 2024, Paramount Pictures and Tina Fey teamed up to debut a sequel to the classic teen comedy “Mean Girls.” Reese Witherspoon, meanwhile, is attached to a “Legally Blonde” threequel — another iconic teen IP. With nostalgia being such a consistent theme at the multiplex, it’s hard not to imagine studios interested in bringing “Clueless” back to life. 

While nothing has been greenlit, Silverstone’s son is eager to have his mom return to her most iconic role. In a 2020 chat with Entertainment Tonight, Silverstone revealed that her son, then 8 years old, was already cooking up a legacy sequel featuring a jaded Cher. “It was unbelievable what he thought,” she said. “She was an alcoholic but he didn’t say those words. He was like, ‘She drinks a lot and maybe she’s a makeup artist? Like a professional makeup artist.'” 

Legacy sequels tend to examine the faults of their characters, diving deep into how the future never matches up with their glory days — think “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” or “Creed.” Seeing Cher as an adult, who has lost her social standing and clout, would be an interesting (albeit depressing) follow-up. The possibilities are endless for a sequel, but Silverstone has maintained that audiences likely won’t get a part two — no matter how much they clamor for one.
