The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a story about a group of British retirees moving to India, must have clicked with audiences as a sequel has been confirmed, reports Radio Times.

The ensemble cast was originally made up of Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson and Penelope Wilton.

Wilton had a chat with Radio Times, confirming most of the gang will be returning to India to begin filming, saying, “We had a wonderful time shooting this film the first time and I am thrilled we will be going back in January to do another one. As far as I know everybody will be returning.” One actor won’t be making the trip … but we don’t want to spoil the plot for the first film by saying why.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was a film adaptation of Deborah Moggach’s 2004 novel These Foolish Things.

Ol Parker, who wrote the first screenplay, is on board to pen the sequel.
