Loretta Devine Says ‘Waiting To Exhale’ Sequel in the Works [Video]

Published: Wednesday 11th Nov 2020 by Rashad

December 22 will mark the 25th anniversary of the release of ‘Waiting to Exhale‘ – the groundbreaking film adaptation of Terry McMillan‘s equally game-changing novel about the stories of four Black female friends balancing romance, parenthood, and more with the demands of their respective professions.

With its main characters portrayed by GRAMMY & EMMY Award-winning Pop icon Whitney Houston, Academy & EMMY Award nominee Angela Bassett, EMMY Award winner Loretta Devine, and Lela Rochon, ‘Exhale’ grossed over 5 times its budget at box offices and broke boundaries for the way women of color were portrayed in movies along the way.

As calls for such positive media representation is at its highest now, Tamron Hall – who welcomed Devine and her ‘Spell’ co-star Omari Hardwick as guests on her top-rated talk show last week – quizzed the actress on if the highly celebrated flick will be among many getting a reboot in the near future.

Devine’s answer was a shocker.  Details inside:

Start at 30:40 mark:

When asked about a long-awaited ‘Waiting to Exhale’ part 2, Loretta responded:

“Well I know Terry and I think Lee Daniels is working on something because she’s been trying to get Waiting To Exhale back for so many years. And because it changed so much for everybody. Not just black women but also, so many shows came out of that with the same girlfriend format that they use.”

She added:

“But I think they’re doing something about the kids of the women, and I think that’s going to be coming out so look forward, there’s a lot of stuff that is being developed to look forward to.”
