Chaotic pop culture icon Lindsay Lohan is making her long-awaited acting comeback in a new Netflix Christmas romcom that’s just been announced, and with the return of Bennifer recently it really does feel like the 2000s again.
Lindsay Lohan is set to star in a new romcom where, according to Netflix, she plays a “newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress” (omg on brand, we love it) who loses her memory in a skiing accident and “finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner and his precocious daughter in the days leading up to Christmas.”
Hmm… amnesia, a forgotten fiancé AND a hot saviour lodge owner??? I smell some spicy Christmas love triangle chaos and I am here for it.
We don’t know who the rest of the cast is yet, but hopefully we get someone just as iconic for her love interest… maybe even a star from the same 2000s era?? Chad Michael Murray, perhaps??

Things have been rough for Lindsay Lohan since her career peaked in the 2000s – she struggled with addiction and had a few run-ins with the law.
Given all the drama, LiLo hasn’t starred in a non-flopping movie since forever. After a while even the media got tired of reporting on her constant antics and forgot about her, and she went to that horrible place forgotten child stars end up in. But, I am so excited to see her rise from the ashes and take back her crown as romcom queen. She told CNN in their 2019 New Year’s Eve special that she wanted to “start filming again,” and “taking back the life that I worked so hard for.” Yes girl, get it!!
The new Netflix romcom doesn’t start filming until November this year, so we won’t be getting the film for a while – but don’t worry, you can kill time by rewatching all of Lindsay Lohan’s 2000s classics, most of which you can find on Disney+. Freaky Friday is my personal fave and I am so ready for a binge.
