If you need some good news in your life, then this is it. The seed of the iconic Spice World sequel has been planted.
Who doesn’t love a reuniting nostalgic moment, especially one that is full of girl power? Get your spiciest wardrobe out for 2022 and pray to the gods of Pop, because we could be blessed with a Spice World sequel.
To mark the 25-year anniversary of the super fun 1997 film, four of our favourites – Ginger, Sporty, Baby, and Scary have apparently approached a screenwriter to make our dreams into a reality, according to a film industry source.
“The girls have been talking about how to mark the film’s anniversary and are actively considering making a tongue-in-cheek sequel,” the source allegedly said.
Is there any other way to do it?
The Spice Girls have made a handful of reunited appearances over the years. The 2012 Olympics opening ceremony was made memorable by our favourite girl group. Lucky for its residents, the (four) members toured across the UK and Ireland for 13 days back in 2019.
Unfortunately, Victoria Beckham (Posh) had to decline due to her ongoing family and business commitments. But, some spice is better than none at all.
The Spice Girls have reportedly begun talks with a screenwriter to develop a sequel to their 1997 film ‘Spice World’.

This happy news is exciting but perhaps it is best to (try) and contain our overflowing excitement for now.
In 2019, rumours began circling that The Spice Girls were developing an animated film with Paramount.
The film’s premise was the girls representing their own character as superheroes, with a rough release set for 2020. However, nothing came of the film… hopefully, history doesn’t repeat itself.
The ever-joyous 1997 film featured fellow iconic stars such as Sir Elton John, Alan Cumming, Meatloaf (coolest tour bus driver ever), Richard E. Grant and Richard O’Brien. Judging from this, we can anticipate an equally cool cast on board.
Who knows, maybe the next tour bus driver will be another American rock icon, like Billie Joe Armstrong. With Geri Horner (Ginger) spearheading the project, we can expect something fun, feminist, and truly spicy.

Despite Beckham’s absence from the Spice Girls life, she is apparently ‘coming around’ to the concept of rejoining the fabulous girl group, according to Mel C (Sporty). This is, of course, fantastic news as Mel C hinted last January that girl-group plans to celebrate their first-ever single, Wannabe (released July 8, 1996).
