Au Pair II (also known as Au Pair II: The Fairytale Continues) is a 2001 American made-for-television romantic comedy film starring Gregory Harrison and Heidi Lenhart and is the second installment in the Au Pair trilogy.
A year after the events of Au Pair, Jennifer Morgan, Oliver Caldwell, and his kids Katie and Alex are back in Europe as the couple prepare for the merger of Caldwell’s company and another named Tek Hausen.
Cassandra and Michael Hausen, the adult children of Tek Hausen’s founder, are opposed to the merger as they see it taking control of their father's company from them. They plot to ruin Caldwell’s image and his engagement to Jennifer, in order to gain control of the combined companies.

Much like the original film, there has been a Region 4 release, there is yet to be a release for the United States and Europe.
In the USA, the movie is occasionally aired on Fox Family's successor, ABC Family with the original. In previous airings there has been advertising on the network for a marathon special, and in recent airings, the films went from primetime slots to late daytime slots.
