Actress Reese Witherspoon said she is “very excited” about a new Legally Blonde prequel series, which will air next year.

Amazon Prime Video confirmed that the series, titled Elle, was in development earlier this week.

It will follow Witherspoon’s character Elle Woods before the events of Legally Blonde.

The star will serve as executive producer of the series, but it has not yet been announced who will play teenager Elle Woods.

In a video shared to Instagram, Witherspoon could be seen getting dressed and applying pink lipstick before holding up a “top secret” perfume script ahead of an Amazon Prime Video presentation to advertisers.

She wrote: “Before she became the most famous Gemini vegetarian to graduate from Harvard Law, she was just an ordinary high school student in the 90s.

“And you’re all going to get to know her next year on Prime Video. I’M SO EXCITED!”
