A Switched at Birth reunion is happening sooner than we thought!

Lucas Grabeel and Lea Thompson have both joined the upcoming Little Women movie, and the two, who played mother and son on the series aren’t straying from their roles all that much.

According to Deadline, Lea will mother of the four sisters, Marmee, while Lucas will play Laurie, her future son-in-law.

If you don’t know about “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott, or haven’t read it (get on that!), it’s about four sisters — Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March — detailing their passage from childhood to womanhood.

'Switched at Birth' Creator Shares Reason Why Bay & Emmett Didn't End Up Together in Series Finale

'Switched at Birth' Creator Shares Reason Why Bay & Emmett Didn't End Up Together in Series Finale

If you watched the series finale of Switched at Birth last night, you know that there really wasn’t a true happy ending for the Bay-Travis-Emmett triangle that has been going on for two season.

Some fans are 100% behind Bemmett, and others are for Travis and Bay…either way, creator Lizzy Weiss knows that Bay and Emmett weren’t going to end up together.

“It would have been hard to get them back together,” she shared with THR after the finale episode. “I do think there is a jerking around of the fans and the triangle that, at some point, has to stop.”

So, if the series had more episodes, would Emmett and Bay have ended up together? “I don’t think so. This felt right for where the characters ended up.”

Lizzy adds, “The truth of the story is, the past five seasons ended with Bay not being able to go back; she wanted to go forward. Which isn’t to say that Emmett isn’t a huge part of who she is.

“That will be a controversy, I’m sure, but there’s also a lot of die-hard Bay and Travis fans. You’re never going to win with everyone, and we were quite aware of that.”

So, are you a Bay & Emmett fan or Bay & Travis fan?

Katie Leclerc Calls Working on 'Switched at Birth' Unbelievable

Katie Leclerc Calls Working on 'Switched at Birth' Unbelievable

Katie Leclerc is just like all of us — she doesn’t want to say goodbye to Switched at Birth.

“UN-Believable!!” she says about working on the show. “I hit the lotto with Switched at Birth.”

When JJJ brought up a possible reunion one day, Katie was ready to start tomorrow!

“Honestly, I love that our show was never afraid to tackle really though issues,” she adds, looking back on the five seasons she starred as Daphne Vasquez.

One storyline that she would’ve loved to expand on was Emmett’s overdose: “He OD’d because he felt horrible and he needed help. I think we could have expanded on that a bit farther and had a commentary to kids about how it’s ok to feel weird but not ok to hurt yourself.”

'Switched At Birth' Star Katie Leclerc's Advice For Learning ASL: 'Make Deaf Friends!'

'Switched At Birth' Star Katie Leclerc's Advice For Learning ASL: 'Make Deaf Friends!'

Vanessa Marano’s advice for learning ASL is to practice — which is a great tip.

Katie Leclerc just wants you to make friends — lots and lots and lots of deaf friends.

“I didn’t become really fluent until I immersed myself in the culture as well as forced myself to either sink or swim,” the Switched at Birth actress told JJJ.

If you didn’t know, Katie has a condition called Ménière’s disease, which causes intermittent hearing loss, along with vertigo.

She only discovered she had hearing issues around 2005, when she volunteered to be filmed taking a hearing test for a video about hearing loss.

“One of my first times hanging out with a deaf person I made him repeat his question 12 times,” she adds. “It was embarrassing, but he’s still my friend, and we still laugh about it today!”

So, what’s actually Katie‘s favorite sign? It’s mosquito!

“You make a drill motion near your nose,” she says of how to sign the word. “Other than that, I love a good argument. When Daphne would have ASL fights, I would get so witty!”

Switched at Birth‘s series finale airs TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on Freeform.
