Universal Pictures confirmed the duo's return in an announcement that the third film in the music-driven comedy franchise has been scheduled for release July 21, 2017.
Kendrick took to social media to celebrate the news, posting a selfie with the caption "Happening #3."
Since opening in May, "Pitch Perfect 2" has been a box office hit, grossing nearly $260 million worldwide on a modest $29-million budget. With solid reviews and an A-minus CinemaScore, the sequel surpassed the first film's entire domestic gross ($65 million) in its opening weekend.
On its newly announced date, "Pitch Perfect 3" is scheduled to open opposite an untitled DreamWorks animated movie.
