Like a ghost itself, the Ghostbusters franchise won’t ever die (though I guess you could argue ghosts are still dead). We had that initial dud of a sequel, an animated series, a video game, then the 2016 reboot, which was not very well received by fans, and then finally this upcoming movie. Clearly, somebody out there wants this story to continue, and it looks like it’s a story that WILL continue — and it will continue with the involvement of many original party members.

We already know that the surviving core cast is pretty much confirmed to be coming back in Ghostbusters 3 (or at least expressed interest — sans Rick Moranis), and Sigourney Weaver recently stated she will also be returning, but we have another important ingredient for the Ghostbusters cake coming our way: the secretary Janine Melnitz. Actress Annie Potts recently spoke with Joblo, and here’s what she had to say.

“I have heard some things. If it’s true, what I’ve heard — yeah, I think it’s gonna happen. I think I will.”

So it’s not 100% confirmed, but Potts sounds fairly confident in what she’s talking about, even if she’s not really in the position to be making any confirmations. Regardless, I think many fans would be happy to see her dry sense of humor return to the franchise. What about you? Let us know your thoughts down below!
