This Oct. 3 happened to be more than just an annual celebration of Mean Girls. It's also the day we'll remember in which the long-rumored Mean Girls musical finally came to fruition. 

According to a tweet from the verified @MeanGirlsDC Twitter account and a post on the Mean Girls Facebook page, the Mean Girls musical will premiere in Washington in fall 2017.

No theater venue or official date has been announced, though Broadway.com reported that more information would come at a later date.

Mean Girls writer and co-star Tina Fey previously teased a potential Mean Girls musical, noting that she was "pretty close" to finishing a script for it during a March interview on Watch What Happens Live

While it's unknown for now if the production will eventually move to Broadway, the annual fervor surrounding Oct. 3 — aka Mean Girls day — is enough to suggest the show will have an audience. In the meantime, the Plastics' rendition of "Jingle Bell Rock" is a worthy enough preview of what to expect until more news comes out.
