We can all picture Jennifer Love Hewitt in her big screen breakout role, screaming, “What are you waiting for?!” And that’s not too far off from what she thinks about reprising some of her most memorable characters: Julie James in I Know What You Did Last Summer and Melinda Gordon in Ghost Whisperer.

Appearing on Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum (via Screen Rant), Jennifer Love Hewitt showed an interest in returning to her most beloved characters if the opportunities ever came up. On Julie James — the protagonist of the first two I Know What You Did Last Summer movies who helped JLH give Neve Campbell a run for her money in the late ‘90s as the reigning scream queen — she said she would “one hundred percent” be on board. “Yeah. I loved making those movies.” Now here’s hoping she and Freddie Prinze Jr. can return for a fourth installment.

And while those teen slashers are obviously important to her career, it’s actually supernatural CBS series Ghost Whisperer that has her heart. “I would do Ghost Whisperer. It was one of my favorite jobs. Melinda Gordon was hands down one of my favorite characters I’ve ever played — if not my favorite. I would love to do it.” Jennifer Love Hewitt earned plenty of praise throughout the show’s five seasons, garnering People’s Choice Awards nominations and two Saturn Awards for her performance. The series lasted five seasons.

Outside of these works, Jennifer Love Hewitt was once attached to a sequel to Can’t Hardly Wait, which would have found her directing and reprising the crush-worthy Amanda Beckett courtesy of a plot surrounding the original gang’s high school reunion. Now that sounds like a worthwhile project.

Jennifer Love Hewitt can currently be seen on Ryan Murphy’s first responders drama 9-1-1, which is set to return for its seventh season next year. Hewitt came onboard during the second season.

Would you want to see Jennifer Love Hewitt return for either another I Know What You Did Last Summer movie or a Ghost Whisperer reboot? Outside of these, is there a role you want to see her revisit? Let us know below!
