The makers of 2011’s Inbetweeners movie have confirmed a sequel is now in production.

The follow-up to their hugely successful comedy film will be shot later in 2013, reuniting characters Jay, Neil, Simon and Will. The movie will be released across the UK & Ireland in August 2014.

In a statement, creators Iain Morris and Damon Beesley said: “We couldn’t be more excited to be making another Inbetweeners movie.

Thank the fans

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.

Earlier this year, newspaper reports suggested the second film could be set in the Australian outback.

However, writers distanced themselves from the claims, saying “Australia is just one of the ideas we’re kicking around.

The original Inbetweeners film, released in August 2011, holds the record for the most successful British comedy of all time.

It centred around the group heading off to the Greek island of Crete on a summer holiday to celebrate leaving school.

It made more than £13 million in its opening weekend and is estimated to have made more than £80 million worldwide.

Starring Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison and Joe Thomas, the Inbetweeners was first aired on E4 in 2008.

The success of the British version saw it remade in the US although it was cancelled after one series.

Will Simon have ditched the hair gel? Will Jay still be getting lucky behind the cheese counter in ASDA?

The show’s creators confirmed the news on Facebook, but said they were unable to reveal any more details.
