A lot happened during the 2023 SAG Awards. But one moment that stole the show was Curtis’ interaction with the Ravenswood actress. Richardson was talking to People magazine when the senior actress was also stopped for an interview. Seeing Curtis, The White Lotus actress explained to her how everyone has been asking her who she wants to see in the next season of the dark comedy series and her answer was Jamie Lee Curtis. “Do you want to do it?” she asked hopefully. Curtis, who looked confused at first, replied by saying, “Yes. I don’t even know what it is, but I will do it.” 

The presenters joked about whether this was a verbal contract being made. But the conversation got the Freaky Friday actress excited as she asked where the shooting would be. Richardson pitched further by assuring that the shooting takes place in fancy places. They shot the second season in Italy and there are higher expectations for the next season.
