The news comes following the successful ten-episode drama series based on the show that ran in 2020. The stars of the series — Hiroshi Tamaki, Haruna Kawaguchi, and Jun Shison — are all set to reprise their roles as Tatsu, Miku, and Masa, respectively, with the film being directed by Toichiro Ruto, who also handled the live-action drama series. More casting news, including guest stars and the plot details of the film, will be announced at a later date.

“I never thought it would become a movie,” said star Hiroshi Tamaki (via Crunchyroll). “It’s been about a year since the drama series aired, but when the filming of the movie started, it all fell into place so easily that I thought that the filming had resumed after only a week’s break from the previous filming. It’s strange, I’ve never felt like this before, but the sound of laughter from director Ruto and the staff during filming, what a relief. It’s so happy to have a time that I can laugh. I’ll do my best to make the movie have a good aftertaste like ‘Looks bad, but tastes good.’ Please look forward to The Way of the Househusband: The Movie!”
