Fifty Shades of Grey is coming back. Hurrah for all of the fans who just cannot get enough of the series.

However, this time around, the filmmakers are doing something new when it comes to the production of the film. Variety reports Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed will be filmed back-to-back, starting in 2016. 

This essentially means that fans have a definite release date and won't be left in the dark for much longer. 

The film also has a brand new director, James Foley, taking over from Sam Taylor-Johnson who departed the franchise in March. So that really put an end to any hopes that her husband Aaron would be making an appearance. 

Truly, a heart-breaking thought.

Despite any rumours to the contrary, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are back. Oh yes, the two actors will return and pick up where they left off. In case you forgot that involves a lot of shirtless toast eating and lots of questionable flirting while travelling in expensive aircrafts. 

A very short teaser for Fifty Shades Darker has been released. However,  it's really not much more than Jamie putting on a masquerade mask, because why not?

Both of the films have been given release dates too. So you can start planning your entire world around the days they movies come out. Fifty Shades Darker is said to arrive in cinemas 10 February, 2017, followed by Fifty Shades Freed one year later. 

But what about the newest book in the series you cry?

It would seem filmmakers have not yet deemed the world ready for a cinematic insight into Christian Grey’s mind. How unfortunate for everyone.

Oh come on, everyone wanted to see an attempt at this on the big screen, didn’t they?
