*This is not a drill* Mamma Mia 2 will be coming to Netflix in the next few weeks.

If you love ABBA songs, big dance numbers and Meryl Streep, then you also probably love Mamma Mia 2.

And there’s incredible news for everyone who is in need of a karaoke session, because Netflix has revealed the sequel will be available to watch next month.

The news was announced on Twitter, along with a shot from the movie of Sophie’s Grandmother, Ruby Sheridan (played by Cher herself).

"We have some news to cher with you: Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again comes to Netflix on 26 June," the tweet read.

Obviously, fans of the film have gone wild, as one tagged a friend and wrote: “Our prays have been answered”.

Many other social media users begged for the first film to also be added to Netflix, after it was taken off in November last year.

Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again! was released in 2018, ten years after the first movie which made its way to our screens back in 2008.

The story sees the much-loved characters travel back in time to see how young Donna (Lily James) fell in love with the Greek island of Kalokairi.
