The agreement will include the third and final installment of hit comedy franchise 'Fack Ju Gohte.'

German mini-major Constantin Film has extended its licensing deal with broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 for another two years, covering all productions shooting in 2017 and 2018.

The agreement, announced Monday, gives ProSieben German TV rights to Fack Ju Gohte 3, the third, and final, installment in the phenomenally successful German comedy franchise from writer-director Bora Dagtekin. The first two films have sold some 15.1 million tickets in German-speaking Europe, generating more than $150 million. The first Fack Ju Gohte was a ratings hit on ProSieben last October, premiering to a 32 percent share in the 14-49 demographic.

ProSiebenSat.1 already has multiyear licensing deals with U.S. studios Warner Bros., Disney, NBCUniversal, CBS, Paramount, and Twentieth Century Fox as well as French-based giant StudioCanal.
