LES PROFS 3 – After the box office success of Les Profs 2, a third installment of the adaptation of the cult comic was in discussion. Where is the project? What we know.

[Updated on August 24, 2020 at 9:00 p.m.] After the success of the film adaptation of The Profs in 2013, the second part of the French comedy released in 2015 confirmed the interest of spectators by bringing together 3,494,244 entries at the box- office. This score raised questions about a possible sequel in the form of Profs 3. In July 2015, producer Romain Rojtman returned to BFM TV with enthusiasm about this possibility: Pierre-François Martin-Laval (alias Pef) would be in for a third episode. “Pef really wants to do a 3. He really wants to get his band of actors together and is already starting to think about a pitch,” said the producer at the time. Speaking of the “group of actors”, he made particular reference to Isabelle Nanty, Didier Bourdon, Kev Adams and Arnaud Ducret.

In five years, there was no more mention of Profs 3…until February 2020 when the film was indeed confirmed by the director of the two adaptations. In remarks to Europe 1 reported by Télé-Loisirs, Pierre-François Martin-Laval confided that he had “started [his] first writing session […] of the Profs suite, Les Profs 3”. And if Kev Adams is now much older than his character, the director does not disassemble and explains that he has “tricks in [his] bag, ideas” to bring the actor back into his role. However, we will have to wait for the next few months before knowing what these ideas are, and especially before knowing the release date of this third part.
