Universal Pictures has announced that the follow up to the 2012 comedy hit Ted will be hitting theaters in the summer of 2015.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, our favorite foul-mouthed teddy bear is making a return to the big screen with what is tentatively known as Ted 2.

Family Guy patriarch, Seth MacFarlane is returning to the project as writer, director, and of course co-stars in the franchise put forth by Universal Pictures and Media Rights Capital.

Ted was one of the highest grossing R-Rated comedies of all time.

Also returning to the project is Transformers: Age of Extinction actor Mark Wahlberg who will be reprising his role as Ted’s best friend John Bennett.

It is unknown at this point if any of the other actors/actresses, like Mila Kunis who played John’s girlfriend Lori, or Jessica Barth who played Ted’s girlfriend Tami-Lynn in the original, will be returning for the sequel.

According to Deadline, Ted writers Alec Sulkin & Wellesley Wild are returning to pen the sequel.

The original was released at almost the exact same time in 2012 and according to Box Office Mojo, grossed over $218 million in the U.S. and over $549 million worldwide after its release on June 29, 2012.

Ted 2 is scheduled to be released on June 26, 2015.
