To kick off the festive season, ABC has rounded up the cast members of Love Actually for a 20th-anniversary reunion that’s set to hit the airwaves early next week.

Hugh Grant (Prime Minister David), Laura Linney (Sarah), Emma Thompson (Karen), Bill Nighy (Billy Mack), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Sam), Olivia Olson (Joanna), alongside the 2003 romantic comedy’s writer-director Richard Curtis and plenty more have sat down with legendary US television anchor Diane Sawyer to revisit one of the most beloved holiday-time icons, period.

“The one-hour special features interviews with the stars of the film… and 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,” ABC reveals of the Love Actually 20th-anniversary reunion special.

“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.”

Prior to this forthcoming affair – officially titled The Laughter & Secrets of Love Actually: 20 Years Later (A Diane Sawyer Special) – the cast of Love Actually had come together on another occasion; complete with the likes of Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Keira Knightley, and even Rowan Atkinson.

As some of you may recall, back in 2017, a 15-minute sequel/Comic Relief sketch imagining the characters 13 years after the original story was produced for Red Nose Day – a children’s charity created by Richard Curtis himself (what can’t the bloke do?).

Andrew Lincoln’s Mark actually ends up marrying Kate Moss, Bill Nighy’s Billy Mack states “the greatest sex” he ever had was with one of the Kardashians – although he can’t recall which one – while Hugh Grant’s David dances to ‘Hotline Bling’ by Drake.

ABC’s Love Actually reunion special airs on November 29th before hitting Hulu for streaming the following day (November 30th and 31st for Aussies).
