Drop Everything Else, 'The Inbetweeners' Are Coming Back In 2014!

In a year filled with sequels, the announcement of the second Inbetweeners movie still comes as a bit of a surprise. But the first movie, based on the cult E4 show did go on to become a huge hit, so the second one is probably a good investment. The 2011 Inbetweeners movie, which centered around Will, Jay, Simon and Neil heading off to the Greek island of Crete for a post-graduation holiday, became the highest grossing comedy in the history of British cinema. With an opening weekend of £13 million and over £80 million in worldwide earnings, the film set the bar high for future sequels.

Filming on Part 2 begins later this year and the film is set to be released in August 2014. Creators Iain Morris and Damon Beesley said in a statement for the BBC: "We couldn't be more excited to be making another Inbetweeners movie."

They continued: "A new chapter in the lives of the Inbetweeners feels like the very least we can do to thank the fans for their phenomenal response to the first movie."

Morris and Beesley also took the opportunity to dispel rumors of the film being shot in Australia, which had been swirling earlier this year. However, loyal fans will be glad to know that the original cast - Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison and Joe Thomas – will return for this installment.
