Bridget Jones is getting ready to return to theaters after a 12-year hiatus.
Universal, Miramax and Studiocanal’s Bridget Jones’s Baby has been slated for release on Sept. 16, 2016.
Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth are reprising their roles in the comedy sequel. Sharon Maguire, who helmed the original Bridget Jones’s Diary, will direct the new film based on creator Helen Fielding’s heroine.
The story centers on the next chapter of Bridget Jones’s life, when she finds herself unexpectedly expecting a baby.
Patrick Dempsey joins the cast for the third installment, and Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title Films are producing alongside Debra Hayward.
Universal is distributing in North America and select international territories.
The first Bridget Jones’s Diary opened in April 2001, and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason opened in November 2004.
Currently, the only other film dated for Sept. 16, 2016, is thriller drama When the Bough Breaks.
