The Portokalos family first captured our hearts 20 years ago in 2002 with its first film that instantly became the highest-grossing romantic comedy ever made. The sequel was released in 2016 about 14 years after the first film and fans are eagerly anticipating a third adventure with the Greek family.

Get ready to pack your bags and take a trip to Greece as the film’s director and screenwriter Nia Vardalos (Toula) revealed they are filming in Greece. She took to Instagram back on June 21, 2022, to reveal the big third movie announcement in an emotional video for fans. She captioned the video by writing: “Thank you Playtone, Gold Circle, HBO and Focus! And so much love and gratitude to all of you for supporting us while we waited for the movie. Little Greece. Greek! ”

Much of the original cast is set to return My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 by the interesting posts shared on Nia’s Instagram. On July 18, 2022, the movie’s official Instagram shared a group photo of some of the cast including John Corbett (Ian Miller), Louis Mandylor (Nick Portokalos), Andrea Martin (Aunt Voula), and more.

But don’t worry. If you don’t see certain actors in social media photos, that doesn’t mean they won’t be in the movie. Nia put in another post with more original members writing “I can see in the comments that you are wondering about certain characters. Well, everyone has been invited back. If you don’t see them in pictures, you will see them in movies.”

What do we know about the story so far?

The plot of the third season is still a mystery as Nia has yet to reveal the full plot. She announced that the script was completed on September 30, 2021, via Instagram. She asked fans to keep their ideas to themselves as her script was already agreed upon.

Nia has given us insider news that Ian and Toula are not grandparents in the upcoming movie but as for the rest, we’ll have to wait and see. The director and star revealed that she wrote the script to honor Michael’s wishes at the time he told her he wouldn’t be able to star in the third season.

When can we expect to see it?

Nia or the production company has yet to announce an official release date. Production for the project started just over a month ago in June 2022, so it’s likely to be over a year away from hitting theaters.

In fact, the film is being shot in Greece, in June, Nia shared that they were filming in Plaka in Athens. In July, Nia tweeted that this was the longest time she had been in Greece.

“Making this film was my longest visit to Greece and I love this country and our people more than ever,” Nia wrote.

We might be taking a trip to Greece sooner than we think, as the movie just finished filming! Nia made the announcement on Instagram on August 4. She captioned the sweet post, “Wow… that’s an end to My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3! I was filled with emotion, so much relief and gratitude all day, and now hot tears are streaming down my face. Thank you to the crew, cast, producers, studio, financiers and our new friends in the town of Varipatades, Corfu, Greece. In the difficult times we live in, it’s so precious when miracles happen.”
