Along with the reunion, MGM announced that the third installment of the franchise will debut in theaters on May 20, 2022. The film was originally supposed to debut in February 2021, however, those plans changed prior to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic for an unknown reason.
Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Parks & Recreation) wrote the screenplay for the film. The official title, director nor cast members have been announced.
Witherspoon will co-produce the third film through her company, Hello Sunshine alongside Marc Platt, who produced the first two movies.
