Is There a Girlfriends Movie in the Works? No, But There Should Be!

There have been films that revived some of the most beloved shows in the history of television — Sex and the City, Charlie’s Angels, 21 Jump Street — but one such franchise that’s yet to deliver a movie to appease its massive fanbase is that of Girlfriends. Starring Tracee Ellis Ross (Joan Carol Clayton), Golden Brooks (Maya Denise Wilkes), Persia White (Lynn Ann Searcy), and Jill Marie Jones (Antoinette 'Toni' Marie Childress Garrett), this show followed four women throughout their day-to-day lives — ranging from love to loss. With the show having wrapped up in 2008, isn’t it time to bring these gals back?

That’s one thing star Persia White — who recently married Originals star Joseph Morgan (they met while both were on the set of The Vampire Diaries) — thinks. Just last month the 42-year-old actress retweeted a graphic telling fans how to let their voices be heard in regards to the making of a Girlfriends movie. Seems like Persia is ready to roll!

This echoes exactly what Golden recently dished to Wetpaint Entertainment about that very exact topic. While she said the power to bring about the movie is obviously in the hands of the creators of the show and Paramount Production, she did say all the show’s stars are interested.

“But, did Tracee [Ellis Ross], Jill [Marie Jones], Persia [White], Reggie [Hayes] all meet [show creator] Mara [Brock Akil] and talk about it? Absolutely. We are in talks about it. I don’t know, we’ll have to check everyone’s schedules, have Mara write a script,” she dished. “I mean, but there is this whole resurgence of you know, making shows into movies and doing sequels, like The Best Man and that kind of thing, so I do think it’s a strong possibility. I can’t speak for Mara, but I definitely think it’s positive.”

So there you have it, Girlfriends fans! It sounds like we should take the age-old adage “never say never” to heart and keep our fingers crossed on this one!
