Playing 'Fifty Shades Darker' Starts Filming! See Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan's Sweet First Kiss

Are you ready for Fifty Shades Darker?

Filming on the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey sequel has officially started, and in the first pictures from the Vancouver set taken on Tuesday, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are already setting the romance bar high.

Shielding Johnson from the rain with an umbrella, Dornan gazes at her with affection, before the two share a sweet kiss.

Johnson, 26, rocked a tan trench coat and black tights for the scene, also getting back her long locks to reprise her role as the innocent Anastasia Steele. The actress previously sported a bob for her role in How to Be Single.

For his part, 33-year-old Dornan looked handsome as ever playing billionaire Christian Grey, rocking a perfectly fitted suit and a little bit of scruff.

Fifty Shades Darker will introduce Grey's business and former sexual partner, Elena Lincoln, played by 62-year-old Kim Basinger. The sequel sees Grey continuing to wrestle with his inner demons brought upon by a complicated childhood, while the conflict between Elena and Anastasia grows.

The drama isn't set to hit theaters until Feb. 10, 2017, though we got our first look at a darker, even more mysterious Grey in the film's first teaser last April.

Author E.L. James' husband, Niall Leonard, wrote the Fifty Shades Darker screenplay.

One thing we know for certain is that Dornan will be completely nude this time around -- if Johnson gets her way, that is!

"Yeah, I'm going to make him get fully naked in the next one," Johnson said about her co-star during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live last month. "Everybody wants to see the D."
