If you were a bit of a chick-flick fan in the mid-late noughties, chances are, you absolutely adored the ABC TV series Ugly Betty.

Starring America Ferrera as Betty Suarez, the show enjoyed a four-season run which followed the 22 year old hopeful journalist as she climbed the ranks at the infamous Mode Magazine.

Starting off as the personal assistant of the Manhattan publication's lothario editor-in-chief Daniel Meade, Betty managed to smash through endless issues thrown her way by the company's lovable villains Amanda Tanen, Mark St. James and Wilhelmina Slater.

Despite her rather unusual fashion choices, iconic adult train-track braces and endless mockery from her fashionable co-workers, Betty managed to land a position as Mode's editor, but refused the job and ended up embarking on a journey to London, where the series ended.

The TV series undoubtedly inspired a whole generation of young fashion journalists, and left its fans heartbroken once its last episode aired in 2010.

Speaking of its 2010 cancellation, the show's executive producer Silvio Horta said in a joint statement with ABC Entertainment president Steve McPherson: "We've mutually come to the difficult decision to make this Ugly Betty's final season."

The show had struggled with its ratings over in the USA, dropping from an average 8.1 million to 5.3 million viewers between its third and fourth seasons

Since then, rumours of a reunion have circulated a couple times, but the show's fans are convinced that we could indeed see the show's incredible cast return for a reunion a whopping 11 years on.

It comes after Eric Mabius – who played Daniel Meade – gave a recent interview to TV Tonight over in the states.

After he was asked by the host whether or not there's plans for an Ugly Betty reboot, the actor let slip that there is indeed something being discussed.

Eric said: "There’s something being discussed, but I’m not at liberty to say.

"We had an abrupt ending and I think that we all felt that we didn’t have enough time to finish telling the stories that needed to be told."

The incredible news has understandable excited fans across the globe, who are praying this apparent discussion turns into a full blown TV reboot.

Eric continued: "I think Ugly Betty was ahead of its time and I think that it would be more timely right now than ever.

"I continue to be proud of that, to be a part of such talent. It was probably the truest work family I’ve ever had."

He then conclude: "Hopefully with enough groundswell, they may even bring the show back for a little bit."

His interview definitely sounds promising, and fans have rushed to Twitter to discuss the hopeful reboot.

One wrote: "I am so unbelievably up for this, I always said a season 5 at least, was needed".

Another excited fan tweeted: "Please #BringBackUglyBetty!" whilst another agreed: "BEST NEWS EVER, WE NEED UGLY BETTY BACK IN OUR LIVES!"

The social media platform is filled with Tweets of grown adults declaring they're currently reliving their youth by watching all of the old episodes.

And even Eric Mabius can't keep quiet about his love of the show, tweeting earlier today about a nostalgic moment he had meeting "one of my absolute heroes" Darryl McDaniels "during Ugly Betty days".
