"There's no green light, but it's definitely in the works," she dished on Thursday's episode of the Meredith Vieira Show. "There is a script being written. They're my girls, three of my best friends to this day."

Apparently the original film was very well cast, as the foursome remains tight, 10 years after meeting and shooting the first movie.

"I was 20 when I met them. I am 30 now and they are still three of my best friends and supporters," she confessed. "What's wonderful about these girls in my life is, people expect girls and women to be competitive, and we made a decision to love and support each other offscreen and onscreen."

"I think that's why people love this movie because it reminds you of the power of relationship and the power that girls have to be each other's champions," she went on. "I love that our audience has grown up with us and that they are excited to see what's happening with the sisterhood."

Ferrera recently dished to E! News about how close the actresses still are. "We all went through our twenties together," she dished. "All my Sisterhood girls are very close to me."

She also had a message for Hollywood and Latinos and Latinas trying to break into the business.

"I think there's a long way to go. I think for roles for people of color and roles for women in general," she confessed. "We've come a long way but I think there is a lot more that can be done in front of the camera but also -- and I think more importantly -- behind the camera."

She concluded, "The content creators need to diversify. We live in a society obsessed with becoming famous and getting known, but we should be encouraging our kids to become creators and to tell their stories."

Let your girl power flag fly, lady. We'll see you at the movies.

Do you think another Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie is a good idea?
