According to the Hollywood Reporter, the sequel will reveal a family secret and a new wedding, described as "bigger and fatter," that brings the Greek clan together again.

Said Vardalos of the news, "Now that I'm experiencing motherhood, I'm ready to write the next chapter of my family story. Of course a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true."
