Dolly Parton is adding two more colors to her already festive coat: red and green.
NBC on Wednesday announced production on Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love, a follow-up to 2015’s hugely successful Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors, which will continue to tell the story of Parton’s early years.
Here’s the film’s official description, per NBC:
The film delivers Christmas joy and peril as an unexpected blizzard threatens the Parton family, while at the same time Dolly’s father (and his kids) make sacrifices to raise enough money to finally buy his loving wife the wedding ring he could never afford to give her. Meanwhile, an important person in little Dolly’s life begins to see that her amazing voice and musical gift might just be made for something bigger than rural Tennessee.
Not only will the sequel feature the same cast as the original — including Jennifer Nettles as Avie Lee Parton, Ricky Schroder as Robert Lee Parton and Alyvia Alyn Lind as young Dolly Parton — but director Stephen Herek will also return.
Additional cast members, as well as a premiere date, will be announced “in the coming months.”
