“Creed II” is the sequel to the Academy Award-nominated reboot of the “Rocky” series, and is due out in November.

Production for the movie has been underway since April, when cast members were spotted on campus at the University of Pennsylvania and at various locations throughout the city.

“Creed II” is directed by Steven Caple Jr. and produced by “Creed” and "Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler. And we know the sequel will bring back Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone.

Here’s a full synopsis of the film:

“Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.”
