Elle Woods is back!

Reese Witherspoon, who played Woods in the original 2001 "Legally Blonde" and subsequent sequel in 2003, confirmed on Thursday that she will reprise the character for a third time.

"It's true," Witherspoon captioned a video of herself clad in a pink bikini, floating in a pool in a nod to a scene in the film.

The "Legally Blonde" franchise followed a perpetually positive Woods as she pursued a law degree at Harvard University and then later a career in politics.

Witherspoon's production company Hello Sunshine is set to produce the film.

It's unclear what's in store in the upcoming installment, but previously Witherspoon has mulled a potential White House run for Woods.

"I think it'd be kind of a cool thing to have her be a Supreme Court Justice or somebody who runs for office, like president," Witherspoon said during a podcast in 2015.

No word on a theatrical release date, but get ready to bend and snap all over again.
