The nostalgic ’90s comedy could be getting an Act 3.

Old habits die hard.
Comedienne Whoopi Goldberg confirmed that a “Sister Act 3” is in the works during a virtual appearance on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” Tuesday.
The “Ghost” star, 64, dropped the bombshell after Corden asked why a tertiary installment of the nostalgic ’90s comedy never happened. “For a long time they kept saying no one wanted to see it,” said Goldberg, “and then quite recently it turns out that may not be true, people might want to see it.”
In order to appease die-hard fans, “The View” co-host says she’s “working diligently to try to figure out how to get the gang together and come back.”
Goldberg will likely reprise her starring role as Deloris Wilson from 1992’s “Sister Act,” which depicts a lounge singer who is forced to join a convent after being placed in the Witness Protection Program. The goofy flick spawned a sequel, “Sister Act 2: Back In the Habit,” in 1993.
“It’s a really fun movie,” said the EGOT winner of the franchise’s pending Act 3. “It’s fun and it feels good and you know, nobody’s mad. It’s just like listen, bad singing, great singing, OK singing and then nuns. What’s better than that?”
