Illumination Entertainment/Universal Pictures

The Secret Life of Pets has been one of the biggest success stories of the summer box office, and less than a month after its release, a sequel has already been confirmed. Universal Pictures has announced that The Secret Life of Pets 2 will be released on July 13, 2018. Chris Renaud will return as director, and Brian Lynch is back to pen the upcoming follow-up.

Pets has crossed the $400 million mark at the global box office following its release on July 8. It’s another smash for Illumination Entertainment, best known for the Despicable Me films and the spinoff hit Minions.

Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart and Steve Coogan are expected to reprise their voice roles, so get ready for more domesticated hijinks in two years!
