The "Life-Size" sequel is a go!
Back in December 2015, Tyra Banks confirmed that she'd appear in a follow-up to the 2000 television movie. At the time, the sequel was expected to premiere in 2016, but the year came and went without it hitting our TVs. The "Life-Size 2" is still coming, though; it is now targeting a December 2018 debut, Deadline reports.
Banks is still attached to the project, both as its star and as an executive producer. She'll again play Eve, a doll brought to life by a young girl trying to bring back her late mother. The girl, Casey, was portrayed by Lindsay Lohan in the original, but so far, Lohan doesn't seem to be returning for the sequel. Alas.
"Life-Size" first aired on ABC before moving to Disney Channel. The follow-up, on the other hand, will air on Freeform, which skews toward an older audience, including the demographic that grew up watching the original on the Disney Channel. We'll see if fans still feel the magic when "Life-Size 2" finally premieres.
