Although the first film did much better in terms of box office collection, both films received positive reviews from the audiences and critics. The two Bad Moms movies were helmed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.
After witnessing the popularity of the second film which received tons of love from the viewers, the filmmakers of the Bad Moms franchise announced another sequel in April 2019. The third sequel was officially titled “Bad Moms’ Moms.” The upcoming movie will portray the lives of the original trio moms’ mothers; the grandmothers.

It is not known whether the ultimate trio, Milia Kunis (as Amy), Kristen Bell (as Kiki) and Kathryn Hahn (as Carla) will return for the third movie nor has it been confirmed yet but we do hope to see our favourite trio return on the screen once again.
There is no official news regarding the release of Bad Moms’ Moms. The leading roles for the upcoming film have been already confirmed but there’s no information when it will be released. It was also confirmed that previous directors for both movies, Jon Lucas and Scott will not return for the third film.
