He'll be waiting!

Just two months after Fifty Shades of Grey hit theaters, Universal Pictures announced the release dates for its sequels Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed at CinemaCon on Thursday, April 23.

So, when will Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) return? Fifty Shades Darker is set to hit theaters on Feb. 10, 2017. Fifty Shades Freed will also arrive just in time for Valentine's Day on Feb. 9, 2018.

The news comes just one day after it was announced that E L James' husband Niall Leonard would be penning Darker.

"Niall is an outstanding writer in his own right, with multiple established credits, producer Michael De Luca told The Hollywood Reporter, "and we are lucky to have him join Team Fifty."

The studio should have no problem getting audiences to watch the upcoming S&M flicks. Fifty Shades raked in a whopping $248.7 million globally and set the record for the biggest international opening for an R-rated film.
