How could we forget when the CW abruptly canceled ‘Girlfriends’ in February of 2008, after the departure of Jill Marie Jones and the ending of the writing strike. Fans were appalled and dismayed and no shows were filmed in order to give closure to a show that had made both the CW and UPN network millions of dollars in ad revenue over a eight year period.
The cast was also disappointed in not having closure. Girlfirends cast member Keesha Sharp recently interviewed with some website and states that there may be a glimmer of hope. There just might be a “Girlfriends” movie coming out…
“Everybody’s talking about it, and I think that would be great…like a Sex in the City. At least give it some kind of closure to a degree and find out what happened to the characters in this past 5 years. We’re all excited about that, everybody’s talking about it, so we’re crossing our fingers and hoping that it happens.”
“All I can say is everybody’s interested, and that’s a start. ‘Cause if Tracee wasn’t interested, or Jill wasn’t interested, or Golden, that would be a problem, but everybody wants it to happen. So we’re just waiting to hear, ‘Hey, we got the money.’ So hopefully, that happens.”

I would definitely be interested in such a movie. Would you be interested in seeing “Girlfriends” The Movie.. Could Tyler Perry make that happen?
