It was reported just a couple of months ago that Universal would be releasing Ted 2 in theaters in April of 2015. At the time of that announcement, Seth MacFarlane tweeted, “We’re aiming for a 2015 Passover release date.” Apparently the studio has changed its mind, as they will now release the R-rated sequel on June 26th, 2015.
This is certainly a ballsy move for Universal considering the summer of 2015 is already jam packed with blockbusters. The film obviously made a lot of money last summer but a release in the summer of 2015 might be a riskier move.
The plot of the film is currently unknown but Mark Wahlberg has been confirmed to reprise his role and Seth MacFarlane will once again voice Ted.
MacFarlane is also set to direct and co-write the sequel with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. Ted 2 will begin production at the beginning of next summer. Make sure to check back for more updates as they come our way.
