Break out the bundt cake! My Big Fat Greek Wedding is getting a sequel.

Twelve years ago, Nia Vardalos won the hearts (and wallets) of America as Toula Portokalos – and now she’s set to do it all over again in a follow-up to her hit 2002 romantic comedy.

Vardalos announced that she was working on the sequel in May, and now Entertainment Weekly reports that Universal has officially signed on to distribute the film.

The sequel will reportedly follow Toula as the revelation of a family secret and a “bigger, fatter wedding” gather the Portokalos family together again.

While John Corbett did not partake in the short-lived CBS sitcom version of the film – titled My Big Fat Greek Life – he is reportedly returning as Toula’s husband, Ian, for the big-screen sequel.

If this news has you feeling faint, Toula’s father would probably recommend a little Windex.
