Elle Woods is back at school in the ‘Legally Blonde’ prequel ‘Elle’

Getting a prequel to Legally Blonde – what, like it's hard? The film that quintessentially carried the 2000's cinematic universe, and almost made us think we should to go to law school, is getting a prequel.

While it won't be a movie, Elle is the prequel TV series to Legally Blonde that will show us Elle Woods' early life and experiences that shaped her to the Harvard Law student that we know and love.

Pull out your Chihuahuas and your best pink pieces, but definitely not your last season Prada shoes – because here is everything you're going to need to know about Reese Witherspoon's Legally Blonde prequel Elle.

Is there a release date?

There is no official release date for the TV series Elle as of yet,  but stay tuned here to find out


Where can I watch it?

Elle will be a TV series that you can watch on Amazon Prime, revealed during the 2024 Amazon Upfront Presentation by Elle Woods herself, Reese Witherspoon. Produced by Amazon Prime and Witherspoon's production company Hello Sunshine, we can expect Reese Witherspoon will have quite the direction in the show as Executive Producer. Alongside Witherspoon in Executive Producing is Lauren Neustadter, Lauren Kisilevsky and Marc Platt.


What will it be about?

As a prequel, Witherspoon stated "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?". While very little is known about the prequel, we do hope Witherspoon's daughter Ava will reprise her mothers role as the younger version of Elle Woods- because have you ever seen a mother daughter duo that look more a like then them?
