Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” fans, there’s good news and bad news.

The good news is that the film is still getting a sequel after its surprising box office success. The bad news is that the hotel has been demoted since you’ve seen it last.

The first trailer has arrived for “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” which sees the returns of Maggie Smith, Dev Patel, Judi Dench and Bill Nighy.

While the first movie was adapted from Deborah Moggach’s “These Foolish Things,” director John Madden tells “USA Today” that “Second” is more of a “companion piece” than a sequel.

Either way, David Strathairn and Richard Gere will play the new residents on the block when the film arrives next year.

Strathairn appears to play a businessman, while Gere has a spark with Celia Imrie’s unlucky-in-love Madge.

With the trailer available for your viewing pleasure below, check it out and let us know if you’re pleased by the results!
