The 00s are making a comeback, and we’re so here for it. First JLo and Ben Affleck reunite and now, Lindsay Lohan is finally making her long-awaited return to acting. Are we back in 2003?

The queen of 2000's nostalgia, Lindsay's filmography features the most iconic, and childhood-defining films—from Parent Trap, Get a Clue to Freaky Friday, and of course, Mean Girls.

Now she's making her comeback with a Netflix rom-com. The streaming giant announced the news on Twitter and gave us a little sneak peek at what we can expect.

The post read: “Lindsay Lohan will star in a new romantic comedy about a newly engaged and spoiled hotel heiress who finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner and his precocious daughter after getting total amnesia in a skiing accident.”

It already has the hallmarks of a classic, feel-good rom-com and we can’t wait. All we can say is, it sounds so “fetch” (sorry, not sorry).

No release date or title have been confirmed, but Variety (opens in new tab) has reported it will start production in November, so sadly we may have to wait a while for it.

Unsurprisingly though, this happy and out-of-the-blue news has left fans delighted, with Twitter full of joyous reactions. One fan posted: “Lindsay Lohan is finally having a film comeback.”

Lindsay previously hinted at her return back in 2019, when she appeared on CNN’s New Year’s Eve special. She said she wanted to “come back to America and start filming again.” 

She also said she was “taking back the life that I worked so hard for and sharing it with my family and with you guys”.

The rest of the cast is yet to be confirmed, but we’re already sold!
