The third film, dubbed Johnny English Strikes Again introduces English as the spy we all know and love on a mission to save the the world once more.
The film also sees the return of Ben Miller who played Bough in the first film released in 2003.
While in the first film English became the country’s sole spy after an attack on the MI5, the second took him on a mission to China in Johnny English: Reborn.
In the third film (to be released in October 2018) it seems English finds himself tackling the efforts of a criminal hacker, who attempts to reveal the identities of British spies.
The film also introduces its new leading lady, actress Olga Kurylenko, who plays agent Ophelia.

According to The Daily Mail, the original, which also starred John Malkovich, grossed almost £22 million domestically, while 2011’s Johnny English Reborn pulled in a comparatively meager £6.2 million.
It is also reported that, in March last year, Rowan – who is worth an estimated £70 million – released Top Funny Comedian solely for the billion-strong Chinese market. The film pulled in an impressive £7.4 million, despite not being released to the rest of the world.
