It’s been 20 years since the cast of the holiday classic “Love Actually” have all been in the same room.
Released in 2003, “Love Actually” is a Christmas movie about the complexities of love told through nine intertwined stories. It grossed $246 million in the box office and has become a must-watch holiday tradition for many.
ABC’s one-hour special gives the cast a chance to take fans down memory lane, as they discuss making the movie and share stories from behind the scenes.
“The special will look at how the film became a beloved Christmas tradition and a global sensation, with new insight into behind-the-scenes secrets and iconic scenes,” the release continued.
The cast members returning for the special are Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Laura Linney, Bill Nighly, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olson and writer-director Richard Curtis.
“The special will also examine how the COVID-19 pandemic refocused the ways we love and connect and the omnipresent acts of kindness inside our families and communities.”
“The Laughter & Secrets of Love Actually: 20 Years Later – A Diane Sawyer Special” airs at 8 p.m. ET Tuesday on ABC, and will be available the next day on Hulu.
