Chicken Run is officially returning for a sequel next year, Netflix has announced.

The new film will be called Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget, and it will be released on the streaming service some time in 2023.

Posting a photo of the new film to Instagram, Netflix wrote: "The CHICKEN RUN sequel is coming, and it's called... CHICKEN RUN: DAWN OF THE NUGGET. Hatching only on Netflix in 2023.

"Starring Thandiwe Newton, Zachary Levi & Bella Ramsey, DAWN OF THE NUGGET revisits your favourite chickens Ginger and Rocky, plus a whole coop of new friends."

The photo shows a chick hatching from an egg, so it appears Ginger and Rocky could be about to become parents.

The original Chicken Run was released in 2000, and followed the lives of a group of chickens attempting to escape from a farm.
