This isn't the first time Lohan has broached the subject of a sequel. During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in 2022, she revealed that Curtis had previously spoken about the possibility.

"I was on the set filming and Jamie Lee Curtis wrote... You're instantly excited and distracted," she recalled. "So, I have to stay grounded and say, 'I'm on set and I have to focus.'" Then she said Freaky Friday 2 and I got even more excited. ” In 2023, the co-stars told The New York Times in a joint interview that they were “both open to a sequel.” “We’re just going to make something that people absolutely love,” Lohan said.

While details about the film's full cast and plot remain under wraps, Variety reported in May 2023 that screenwriter Elyse Hollander would co-write the script.
