Mark-Wahlberg-and-Seth-MacFarlane-in-Ted

Copying and pasting Seth MacFarlane‘s Family Guy schtick into the mouth of a teddy bear was an idea worth a half-billion dollars at the box office. With that in mind, it’s not surprising in the slightest that MacFarlane would be at it again, and thanks to Twitter, we can put an official stamp on things. When asked about a Ted sequel, Macfarlane had this to say:

Knowing MacFarlane, it’s easy to assume this was just a cheap shot at members of the tribe, but Screen Crush has confirmed that this is the real release date (in 2015, the first night of Passover is April 3, so that seems to line up).

Those who enjoy MacFarlane’s particular brand of mockery are probably high-fiving at this very moment. Those who don’t have surely learned to ignore him at this point, so unless Ted 2 goes on to win a wheelbarrow full of Oscars, this shouldn’t be too painful. Presumably Mark Wahlberg will return, along with a plethora of jokes aimed at every race, creed, and color under the sun.

I’d like to end this on a personal note: I had the misfortune of working in a movie theater during the release of the first Ted, and was forced to contend with nightly stampedes of college-aged bro-dudes eager for their MacFarlane fix. At every single showing, almost as if it had been planned in advance, a member of each herd would point to a Magic Mike poster, then at the guy next to him and snicker “dude, go see that one because you’re totally gay.”

I’d like to offer my condolences to everyone working a theater on Passover 2015.
