While Christmastime might be the last thing on your mind today, Netflix just released an announcement that will make you wish December would come sooner. The streaming platform just confirmed that A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby film is in the works and is due—no pun intended—this holiday season. 

Netflix made the announcement today with a tweet sharing some “personal news:” 

Released on November 17, 2017, A Christmas Prince transported audiences to the fictional kingdom of Aldovia, where American journalist Amber Moore met Crown Prince Richard and ultimately saved his position on the throne. The sequel, A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding premiered on November 30, 2018. 

With the pending birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal bundle of joy, one might deduce that the third film closely follows real-life events. The Royal Baby, however, is a lot more complex than that. When A Christmas Prince fans return to Aldovia for the third time, diplomatic affairs and perhaps some supernatural forces will be introduced. Through a media announcement, Netflix gave a few hints as to what audiences might expect: “Amber and Richard host royals from a faraway kingdom to renew an ancient truce but when the priceless 600-year-old treaty disappears, peace is put in jeopardy and an ancient curse threatens their family.”

Between the arrival of an heir and a looming curse, we can safely assume that the upcoming film will be packed with the same cheesy drama that drew in loyal fans through the first and second installments.

Details, such as its premiere date, have yet to be disclosed but we know for sure that Rose McIver and Ben Lamb will return as Amber and Prince Richard. Both actors excitedly posted about the film on their respective Instagram accounts using the same joke in their captions.

Even Sarah Douglas, who played Mrs. Averill in the first two films, tweeted about how excited she is to be working with McIver once more.
