Loretta Devine said there’s “a lot of stuff” for Waiting to Exhale fans to be excited about, including a possible film sequel.
“I know that [Waiting to Exhale author Terry McMillan] and I think Lee Daniels are working on something because she’s been trying to get Waiting to Exhale for so many years and because it changed so much for everybody, not just Black women…so many shows came out of that with the same girlfriend format that they used,” Devine said during an interview on Tamron Hall. “I think they’re doing something about the kids of the women and I think that’s going to coming out.”
The idea of making a story about the children of the women from the original film makes a sequel seem more palatable, seeing how Whitney Houston was an integral part of the first film and it would feel strange to have a sequel without her.
Devine also teased other projects that could be coming up, saying, “There’s a lot of stuff being developed to look forward to.”
