Fans rejoice! The highly anticipated My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 has just announced its release date and new trailer showing the Portokalos family return home to Greece.

Read more below to watch the preview and get hyped for the 3rd installment of the 00’s classic.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

My Big Fat Greek Wedding originally premiered in 2002, and instantly became a fan favorite. Starring John Corbett and Nia Vardalos, the story follows nerdy “Toula Portokalos” coming out of her shell to meet the man of her dreams, non-Greek “Ian Miller.”

In the first film we are introduced to the entire Portokalos family, and get to see Varalos go from frumpy girl to bride, thanks to the confidence she receives working outside of the house and ultimately seducing Corbett.

Michael Constantine as the conservative, kooky Pappous “Gus” shined… and not just because he was obsessed with Windex.

Greek Sequel

Because the first installment was so beloved, there was eventually a My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. The sequel, which saw Vardalos, Constantine and Corbett return premiered several years later in 2016.

Showing 3 generations of the Portokalos family, the daughter of Toula and Ian prepares for her own upcoming wedding.

The synopsis reads:

Still working in her parents’ Greek restaurant, Toula Portokalos’ daughter, Paris, is growing up. She is getting ready to graduate high school and Toula and Ian are experiencing marital issues. When Toula’s parents find out they were never officially married, another wedding is in the works. Can this big, fat, Greek event help to bring the family together?
