The sequel to 2016 sleeper hit Bad Moms will introduce the main characters' very own mothers in a festive follow-up that will be released later this year.

The naughty mums, played by Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn, will all reunite for the sequel - and they'll be joined by some credible talent following the announcement that Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Cheryl Hines will play their mothers.

News of Bad Moms Christmas arrived soon after it was announced that spin-off Bad Dads would be released by STX Entertainment next July. That project has now been pushed back in favour of the upcoming festive outing which will be released this November.

The distributor - who steered the original to an impressive £147 million - said it “...has chosen to focus on extending consumer passion for the Bad Moms brand with a series of film spin-offs, a reality television show, short form digital content, and a robust consumer products program.”

Other Bad Moms Christmas cast additions include Peter Gallagher and Justin Hartley.

Writer/directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore (The Hangover) are returning for the sequel.
