30 Jul – Following the success of her Netflix film, "Yes Day", it was revealed that Jennifer Garner is set to work on the sequel after signing a new multi-picture deal with the streaming giant.

Garner, who produced and played the role of Allison Torres in the movie, revealed that she is honoured to be joining the group of creatives on Netflix.

"I had the most gratifying, creative experience bringing "Yes Day" to life. Seeing Netflix's global reach as the Torres family wreaked havoc in homes all over the world makes me eager to dive in with another Day of Yes; I can't wait. I am grateful for Netflix's continued support and look forward to mixing it up across the board with this partnership," she said.


Kids don't have good fashion sense

Based on the children's book by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, "Yes Day" revolves around a married couple who decide to say yes to all of their children's wildest wishes after spending most of their days rejecting the kids' requests.

Released back in March and co-starring Edgar Ramirez and Jenna Ortega, "Yes Day" was seen by 62 million households and become the biggest Netflix Kids & Family film to-date.

Aside from the sequel, the multi-picture deal includes several other projects for the said actress. She will also appear on two other Netflix films - "The Adam Project" starring Ryan Reynolds, Zoe Saldana and Mark Ruffalo, and "Family Leave", which is another adaptation of Rosenthal's book, "Bedtime for Mommy".
