We all secretly love "Fifty Shades of Grey," right?! As we patiently await the release of its first sequel, "Fifty Shades Darker," on Feb. 10, 2017, let's take a look at some of the stars who are joining the franchise this time around!
Legendary actress Kim Basinger will light up the screen as Christian Grey's older ex, Elena Lincoln — whom Anastasia refers to as "Mrs. Robinson."

Former "Smallville" actor Eric Johnson, who most recently starred on "The Knick" as Dr. Everett Gallinger, takes on the role of Jack Hyde — Anastasia Steele's publishing company boss — in "Fifty Shades Darker."
Former "Hannibal" star Hugh Dancy will make his debut in the "Fifty Shades" franchise as Dr. John Flynn, Christian Grey's psychiatrist.
"Teen Wolf" and "Supergirl" hunk Tyler Hoechlin joins the "Fifty Shades" franchise as Boyce Fox, an editor at the publishing company where Anastasia Steele gets a job.
English actress Fay Masterson — best known for appearing in "Eyes Wide Shut," "The Man Without a Face" and "The Quick and the Dead" — will play Christian Grey's longtime housekeeper and cook, Gail Jones.
Robinne Lee — known for her roles in "Hitch" and "Being Mary Jane" — plays Christian Grey's close friend and second in command at Grey Enterprises Holdings Inc., Ros Bailey.
She was barely in the first movie, so we're re-introducing her here: British singer Rita Ora portrays Christian Grey's sister Mia in the second installment of the franchise.
There's new talent joining the franchise behind the scenes too: Niall Leonard — the husband of the books' author, E.L. James — wrote the screenplay for "Fifty Shades Darker." Niall (pictured here with his wife) replaces the first movie's screenwriter, Kelly Marcel. Niall is a novelist who's also written for television on projects including "Monarch of the Glen" and "Horatio Hornblower 3." Director James Foley — best known for movies like "At Close Range," "Glengarry Glen Ross" and Netflix's "House of Cards" — replaces Sam Taylor-Johnson, who reportedly left the project because of constant clashes with author E.L. while making the first movie.
And returning as control-obsessed mogul Christian Grey is model-turned-actor Jamie Dornan, who's fresh off Season 3 of "The Fall."
And Dakota Johnson is back, of course, as protagonist Anastasia Steele.
