Seth MacFarlane's Ted sequel will return to cinemas in June 2015, Universal Studios have confirmed.
Seth - who made his directing debut in the first film, which he also wrote and co-produced - will return in all four capacities again for the next instalment.
The 39-year-old - the brains behind Family Guy and American Dad! - has been hard at work with his second film, the Western A Million Ways To Die In The West, starring himself with Amanda Seyfried, Charlize Theron and Liam Neeson.
Mark previously confirmed that a sequel was in the works.
He told US talk show host Anderson Cooper: "There is a Ted 2. We've already locked a deal. They're off writing now and I've never done a sequel before, but I have just so much confidence in Seth. He's such a talented and funny guy."
