When news began circulating about the potential reunion, Najimy was hesitant about how the women would be included. 

‘Here’s the honest answer: Sarah and Bette and I all have a million projects and things that we’re into, so I don’t know if they’re gonna offer us [roles],’ she said. ‘I don’t know if the worlds are going to collide so that we could all three do it at the same time.

‘But I’m happy that it’s happening, because the fans are really rabid and they really want it,’ she added with a smile. ‘[And] if we’re not all available to star in it, I think it would be so great to do a cameo. I think that’d be really fun.’
