Is it true? Could The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants gang be coming back to the big screen for a third time?

If America Ferrera has her way, the answer is an absolute yes!

"There's no green light, but it's definitely in the works," she teased fans on Thursday's all-new Meredith Vieira Show. "There is a script being written. They're my girls, three of my best friends to this day."

Those girls turned adults are none other than Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel and new mom Blake Lively. After more than 10 years since the first film was released, Ferrera assures both Meredith Vieira and fans that they are still closer than ever.

"I was 20 when I met them. I am 30 now and they are still three of my best friends and supporters," she shared. "What's wonderful about these girls in my life is, people expect girls and women to be competitive, and we made a decision to love and support each other offscreen and onscreen."

She continued, "I think that's why people love this movie because it reminds you of the power of relationship and the power that girls have to be each other's champions. I love that our audience has grown up with us and that they are excited to see what's happening with the sisterhood."

To this day, the co-stars have remained in close contact with each other. In fact, they've all had the opportunity to visit Lively's new baby. Lucky ducks!

"We all went through our twenties together," Ferrera recently shared with E! News. "All my Sisterhood girls are very close to me."

But as much as Ferrera is excited about the possibility of reuniting, she does wish there were a lot more opportunities for Latinos and Latinas to succeed in Hollywood.

"I think there's a long way to go. I think for roles for people of color and roles for women in general," she explained. "We've come a long way but I think there is a lot more that can be done in front of the camera but also--and I think more importantly—behind the camera."

She concluded, "The content creators need to diversify. We live in a society obsessed with becoming famous and getting known but we should be encouraging our kids to become creators and to tell their stories."
