My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 has been confirmed since April 2021, although production had been reduced due to the pandemic.

Michael Constantine, who played Gus in August 2021, will follow Toula (Vardalos) and Ian''s (John Corbett) daughter, Paris, in the sequel (via Deadline).

Vardalos paid tribute to her co-star following Constantine''s death last year and shared an Instagram post with the caption: "He had told me that he would not be able to join us for the third film, and his intention was that we continue.

"I wrote the screenplay to reflect Michael''s decision, and I will always treasure his last messages to him, hoping we were going soon."

Toula, a single lady whose very Greek family want her to marry a Greek man, is filmed in the original 2002 film, starring Toula, who lives in Los Angeles, where she married and married an American teacher.

Toula and Ian have a 17-year-old daughter who they raised in the house her parents gave them, all while they try to regenerate the spark in their marriage.

Fans of Paris waited until after she announced the arrival of Alex Wolff, but the final note suggests that this is a real possibility.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding was a big success, with the sleeper reaching a milestone of more than $360 million on a $5 million budget and earning Vardalos an Oscar nomination for the screenplay.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 is still out.
