The Inbetweeners Movie 2 will start shooting in Australia on 7th December before moving to the UK in January.
Iain Morris and Damon Beesley, the creators of the hit E4 sitcom will be directing the new film, and have once again written the script.
They said in a statement:
"So, the news is (drumroll)... filming is about to start and yes, it's set in Australia. We can't say too much as we don't want to spoil the jokes for you, but what we can exclusively reveal is there will be kangaroos. And Australians. And possibly koalas. Oh and obviously Jay, Will, Neil and Simon providing they're let into the country."
They added: "Thanks so much for all your support, we're hoping to deliver a film that you'll enjoy even more than the last one."
The first Inbetweeners Movie was a surprise and runaway smash-hit success. With takings to date nearing £60 million, it is the most successful British comedy film of all time.
The film will be produced by Bwark Productions, with a release date for the UK and Ireland already set for August 2014.
