The third installment of the Bridget Jones series just got a little bit closer.

On Oct. 2 Universal Studios tweeted that filming has begun on Bridget Jones's Baby and also shared the first glimpse of Renée Zellweger in character as the beloved Bridget Jones. In the photo, Zellweger looks adorable in a cozy knitted sweater with her hair partially pulled back as she hugs an iPad to herself:

The movie is the third installment in the franchise based on Helen Fielding's books which chronicle the romantic misadventures of the adorably awkward Brit. Production of Bridget Jones's Baby has begun nearly 11 years after the release of Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and Zellweger is joined by the ever-dreamy Patrick Dempsey as well as Colin Firth, who is slated to reprise his role as Mark Darcy.

Although much of the movie's plot remains a closely guarded secret, what we do know is that Jones is unexpectedly expecting and that it's going to be hilarious

Bridget Jones's Baby is scheduled to hit theaters September 2016.
