December has finally arrived, which can only mean one thing: a sequel to gay Christmas rom-com Happiest Season is on its way. Or, at least, that’s what Aubrey Plaza has been hinting at on TikTok.
The star plays Riley, a doctor and former girlfriend of Harper – played by Black Mirror’s “San Junipero” lead Mackenzie Davis – in the hit flick, which also stars Kristen Stewart.
In a TikTok video shared by a fan, Plaza is captured at a book signing for her new children’s book The Legend of the Christmas Witch, alongside a caption that reads: “Aubrey talking about Happiest Season OMFGGG.”
“There’s gonna be another one,” she says in the clip. “Um, yeah! Because my character deserves love too.”
Riley remains single in the original film, despite fans gunning for her to end up with Stewart’s character Abby. Both characters are kept in the closet by Harper, and have undeniable on-screen tension, so it would only make sense that they rekindle the chemistry for part two.
While nothing has been confirmed, we can only hope that Plaza is speaking truth. Here’s hoping for a Christmas miracle!
