New 'Love Actually' Sequel Trailer Reveals Where Characters Are Today — and Not Much Has Changed!

The sequel will air on May 25 on NBC as part of Comic Relief's Red Nose Day

Even after all this time, love is still all around.

A new trailer for the Love Actually sequel reveals where the characters are 14 years after the original film premiered — and for most, not much has changed.

The trailer opens with iconic scenes from the original, before flashing forward to modern day with an adult Sam (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) confiding in his father (Liam Neeson) about his love life.

“Here we go again,” Neeson’s character says.


Several scenes from the short sequel echo moments from the original film, including the iconic cue-card scene. Andrew Lincoln‘s character once again shows up at Keira Knightley‘s door, but this time rather than professing his love, he asks her opinion about his facial hair.

Hugh Grant‘s character proves that he still loves to bust a move — though he can’t move quite like he used to.


“How many times have I told you not to dance down the stairs,” Natalie (Martine McCutcheon) scolds Grant’s character after he takes a tumble.

Colin Firth, Laura Linney, and Bill Nighy (whose character apparently had sex with a Kardashian) also star in the trailer.

The film’s Oscar-nominated writer-director, Richard Curtis, wrote and directed the sequel, which will air on May 25 on NBC in honor of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day.
