Jennifer Grey’s only coming back if all the moves are right.

The “Dirty Dancing” actress appeared on “Good Morning America” this week and revealed she’d only appear in a sequel to the hit 80s film if it truly honored her costar, the late Patrick Swayze.

"We're not giving up any dates at the moment because… really, what I'm doing, my whole job with this, is to get it right, get it really right, in Patrick's honor, in honor of all of the fans' relationship with the movie. If you're going to do that movie again, it has to be right," Grey said. "It's definitely happening. I'm very excited to say that. It's something I refuse to do unless it's perfect, so I'm doing my very best to make sure we honor it."

Lionsgate announced a sequel to “Dirty Dancing” in spring 2022 and little info has been released about the movie.

Grey told Entertainment Weekly at the time she couldn’t reveal much but the “new chapter” would involve her iconic character of Baby.

“It’s going to be music, dancing, love story, romance,” she said.

Grey will next appear in “Gwen Shamblin: Starving for Salvation” Feb. 4 on Lifetime.
