There’s still hope for a Sweet Home Alabama sequel!

In a Wednesday morning appearance on Good Morning America, Josh Lucas—Reese Witherspoon's handsome co-star in the 2002 flick— revealed that he’s pushing hard for a follow up to the modern Southern classic.

Lucas said that he and director Andy Tennant have talked "extensively" about a sequel and are "lobbying for the world to join us." Unfortunately, Witherspoon is a bit busy these days.

Lucas went on to say that Tennant even has a proposed synopsis, although fans of Melanie and Jake might not be too happy about it.

"The proposal that Andy Tennant, the director, had, which was quite interesting, was that my character is back in Alabama, and Reese is actually, her character is in New York with our kids," Lucas explained. "We're divorced. So, the whole life is super complicated."

Lucas didn't say whether Jake would win Melanie back, but did share another juicy tidbit: Dempsey's character Andrew "is still in the picture."

But before you get too excited, Lucas did reiterate that it’s “just a proposal.”

Fingers crossed they make it happen!
