Good news and bad news "Life-Size" fans.

Good news: The sequel to the cult 2000 TV movie is actually happening. Star Tyra Banks took to Twitter Monday to reveal filming is underway. Bad news: Lindsay Lohan, who starred alongside Banks in the original movie, will not be part of the sequel.

In her tweet, Banks shared a photo of herself embracing Francia Raisa ("Grown-ish") and wrote that she will in fact be starring in "Life-Size 2."

"It's time y'all! You've waited long enough," Banks wrote. "Could not find one single woman more perfect to co-star with Eve than the magnificently fierce @franciaraisa."

The "America's Next Top Model" host added that "Life Size 2" will be on FreeFrom "this holiday season!"

The original "Life-Sized," starred Banks as Eve, a fashion doll who was mistakenly brought to life by Lohan's character, Casey, a young girl who attempted to bring back her mother back to life.

Deadline reported earlier this year that a sequel to the Disney TV movie was happening and that it would in fact star Lohan, as well as Banks.

TV Line reports "Life-Size 2" will follow Eve, who is "magically awoken to help a young woman learn to live and love again. Along the way, Eve herself will experience the ups and downs of real life in a fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie."

Raisa will play Grace Manning, the confident and funny CEO of Marathon Toys, a huge toy company started by her mother that is most famous for manufacturing the iconic Eve doll. Grace is also a hot mess in the middle of her quarter-life crisis and realizing that she is in over her head as CEO. To make matters worse, her wild-child ways are causing the company's stock to plummet. Joining Raisa and Banks are Gavin Stenhouse as Grace's potential love interest Calum; Shanica Knowles as Tahlia and Hank Chen as Brendan, who are Grace's best friends; along with Alison Fernandez as Lex, Grace's young next-door neighbor.
