Tracy Flick is about to return in a new feature film for Paramount+, Tracy Flick Can’t Win. The film will be a sequel to the cult classic Election from 1999, which saw Reese Witherspoon in the role of Tracy Flick. She’s not the only familiar face, as director Alexander Payne is also seemingly back to bring the continuation to life. It’ll be an adaptation on the novel by Tom Perrotta‘s novel by the same name and Payne is set to write it alongside Tim Taylor.

The story will return to Flick, who has now found herself as the assistant principal at a local public high school and continues to struggle on her way to the top. So, some things don’t seem to change that much for flick, but Witherspoon will return in the role and also act as a producer on the sequel for Paramount+. It’ll be interesting to see if they can recapture what made the original such a classic and if they might even find a way for Matthew Broderick to return as well.

This return of Flick highlights once again that we’ve moved way from the pure remake phase in Hollywood towards a sequel legacy focus. Many iconic franchises are making a return one way or another, especially when it comes to streaming services desperately trying to get their hands on the next major project that’ll draw in new subscribers.
