When we think of movies from the 90s and the early millennium, the name Lindsay Lohan immediately comes to mind. She first stole hearts by playing the adorable twins, Hallie and Annie, in the classic movie, The Parent Trap (1998). This was followed by Mean Girls (2004) and Freaky Friday (2003), smart and well-written movies that have been embedded in popular culture.
Fans of Lindsay, and maybe rom-com fans in general, just got a special gift from Netflix. The well-missed star will be back on the silver screen for a Christmas special by executive producers, Amanda Phillips and Eric Jarboe. In the flick, Lindsay will play a newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress who finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner.

The announcement was tweeted by Netflix last May 25 and will start production in November of this year. So while looks like the movie won’t be for Christmas 2021, we’re definitely still excited about the news of Lindsay’s return.
What happened to Lindsay?
While the success of Linday’s post-Mean Girl’s movie era never matched her youth’s success, she did take on some projects. Prior to the big Netflix announcement, she appeared with Rupert Grint (Harry Potter Series) in the 2nd season (2018) of the series, Sick Note. Other relatively recent projects include a horror thriller, Among the Shadows, and a cartoon, Devil May Care (2021). She’s also guested in popular shows like Glee (2012) and 2 Broke Girls (2014).
Lindsay has definitely been through a lot, going back and forth on the rocky road of addiction to sobriety. In her 2014 interview with Oprah, she described herself as an “addict”, explaining that alcohol was her gateway drug to other things. She also admitted to using cocaine. We’re definitely rooting for Lindsay to come back for good this time because she really is a talent.
