Referring to his co-writer Iain Morris, Damon Beesley told the The Sun newspaper that "yes, we have been developing an idea for a sequel."
He added that one of the reasons for working on a follow-up was that he missed working with the four lead actors, Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison and Joe Thomas. The first film’s U.K. box office performance of over £45m (helped by the most successful opening of all-time for a British comedy) might have had some sway over his decision.
Morris also confirmed this news via Twitter. Both he and Beesley have stressed that they want to do justice to their creation by having a good story in place. Nothing has yet been signed but this apparent appetite for quality, in addition to the original cast, should guarantee some belly-laughs if the sequel ever comes to fruition.
What is more questionable is whether or not lightning can strike thrice for the project. After the final episode of the TV series ("The Camping Trip") provided a fitting end to the central characters and their friendship, the 2011 film was surprisingly an even better send-off for the quartet.
It has been just over a year since the U.K. cinematic release of The Inbetweeners but it will soon open in the U.S. on 7th September. The American adaptation of the TV series premiered on MTV earlier this week.
