Warning: The article below contains cannon spoilers from the Love Actually sequel short, which will premiere in the U.S. on Wednesday, May 24.
Love Actually is back!
The ensemble cast from the classic 2003 rom-com reunited for a sequel short, Red Nose Day Actually, which aired in the U.K. on Friday to benefit Comic Relief, a British charity that fights poverty and injustice in the developing world.
Keira Knightley, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Andrew Lincoln, Hugh Grant, Bill Nighy, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson and more of the film's stars return for the reunion, which packs a surprisingly robust number of updates on how the various characters' lives have progressed since the original movie aired.
Read on for the highlights!
In one incredible moment, Knightley's Juliet makes fun of Lincoln's Walking Dead beard, before his character, Mark, reveals he's married Kate Moss -- one of the models from his collage in the 2003 film!
Then of course, Grant's character, David, busts quite the move to Drake's "Hotline Bling."
And, perhaps most adorably, Daniel (Liam Neeson) is reunited with his son, Sam (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), as his childhood crush, Joanne (Olivia Olson), asks Daniel for permission to marry his son!
