Move over Hallmark Channel, Netflix is coming for your tinsel.

It’s almost that magical time of the year when our televisions will be dominated by so much Christmas content that we’ll be sick of it by the end of November.

In recent years, streaming services have gotten into the game with Netflix leading the pack with original Christmas movies and holiday shows for fans to enjoy. This year (2019) will see the most Christmas movies released by the service to date.

It looks like the streaming giant has its eyes on next year’s crown.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has a sequel in the works for 2018’s Princess Switch. The film stars Vanessa Hudgens in the dual roles of Duchess Margaret of Montenaro and baker from Chicago, Stacy. The two switch lives for a couple of days and fall in love with the men in the other’s lives along the way.

You know how it goes.

This time, however, the look-alikes seem to be growing into some Orphan Black like proportions. There’s going to be a third lookalike in the 2020 film also played by Hudgens.

“Duchess Margaret (Hudgens) unexpectedly inherits the throne to Montenaro and hits a rough patch with Kevin (Nick Sagar). It’s up to her double, Stacy (Hudgens), to save the day before a new look-alike, party girl Fiona (Hudgens), foils their plans.”

The sequel will see screenwriters Robin Bernheim and Megan Metzger returning with Mike Rohl directing. The title for it is, unsurprisingly, The Princess Switch: Switched Again. 

Dear God, they’re following Sharknado naming conventions.

The Princess Switch: Switched Again will premiere in 2020 and production will begin in January.

If you want to see more of Vanessa Hudgens in prime cheesy holiday movies, then she will star in time-traveling Christmas romance (yes, you read that right) The Knight Before Christmas, which hits the service on Nov. 28.
