The 53-year-old blonde actress glowed in a green skirt suit that made the most of her toned legs as she headed to the Today show in New York City to plug her one-night stage show. 

While sitting down with Hoda Kotb, the siren confirmed that she has not yet been asked to work on the Ally McBeal sequel which is in early development at ABC, according to Deadline.

All that Jane knows about the sequel is what she has read in the papers, she said, adding she thinks she read that Flockhart was involved.

‘I am excited to see what they do with it,’ she said as she said she is looking forward to the new series.

And she added that she will forever be ‘grateful’ to the hit show because it started her TV career.

Jane also joked over clips from that flashed in the background that her hair is still as curly as it was on Ally McBeal but she is happy she can get ‘blow outs’ now, she laughed. 

Deadline reported in August that Flockhart may have been approached to work on the series.

But the star of the sequel will not be Calista. The main role will be played by a young black woman who is just out of law school. She joins the law firm from the original series.

It is believed that the woman is the daughter of Ally McBeal’s (Flockhart) D.A. roommate Renée Raddick, who was played by Lisa Nicole Carson

The show will be written and executive produced by Karin Gist.

Ally McBeal followed an over-imaginative attorney as she navigated the ups and downs of both her personal and professional life.

The show ran for five seasons until 2002, and costarred Vonda Shepard, Portia de Rossi, Lucy Liu, Courtney Thorne Smith and Gill Bellows, among many others. 

Show creator David E. Kelley has previously mentioned his support of a reboot of McBeal, however he has urged that a woman be the main creative force behind the new iteration.

‘I’d be open to the idea of Ally McBeal being done again, but I don’t think it should be done by me. If it were going to be done, it really should be done by a woman,’ the husband of Michelle Pfeiffer told The Hollywood Reporter back in 2018. 

‘If it’s going to be new, it should be new and different. And I did it: 100 hours,’ he concluded. 

Over its five-year run, Ally McBeal won four Golden Globes as well as seven Primetime Emmys, including for Outstanding Comedy Series.

Flockhart’s most recent credit has been a recurring role on Supergirl.

She also talked to Hoda about her new stage gig in Seth Rudetsky’s Broadway which will debut on Sunday.

‘We sit and chat and tell stories, stories you don’t know, and then we sing songs, but we will bring up some 30 Rock songs, Tina Fey is writing me some songs, it will be great material,’ she shared.

And Jane said she loves to drive a Vespa around NYC these days.

‘COVID happened and we all wanted singular transportation,’ she said. And she admitted that she does weave between cars.

As far as her son, he is now in middle school – 6th grade – and will go back to school on Thursday.

‘He is starting 6th grade, he is in a jazz band and he wants to be a musician,’ she shared. He also wants to go back to school for he ‘socializing,’ she added.

Elsewhere in the interview, Jane said she is a big fan of Lizzo and knows her music.

‘I was different from the other schools but at that time you want to be more normal,’ she noted.
