No question of staying in a corner!
It’s been 35 years since dirty dancing got fans dancing and today Lionsgate announced some big news at CinemaCon in Las Vegas: Dirty Dancing 2 will see the light of day, reports Entertainment Weekly.
“Jennifer Gray returns to the Kellerman pension in a later chapter”, said a voiceover during the studio presentation. Kellerman’s is obviously the upscale resort in the Catskills where Baby meets handsome dance instructor Johnny.
Patrick Swayze has been dead since 2009, but Jennifer Gray62, will therefore indeed resume her role as Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman, with a few more years.

Let us remember that over the years, we have already had the right to Dirty Dancing: Havana Nightsa not very successful prequel (in 2004), then the 2017 remake, starring Abigail Breslin and Nicole Scherzinger.
