Variety reports that Jenkins recently closed her deal to return for the sequel, which is due in theaters in 2019.
Jenkins will get directing and writing fees in the high seven figures range (somewhere between $7-9 million), as well as a "considerable backend". It was reported last month Jenkins was close to finalizing a deal that would make her the highest paid female director in Hollywood. She has also a TNT series in the works with Wonder Woman star Chris Pine headlining.
This summer's movie grossed $409 million domestically and $813 million worldwide. The DC (and regular) universe was changed forever when the film, starring Gal Gadot, broke the record for the biggest domestic opening for female directors ever, raking in $100.5 million in the U.S. in its first weekend, and an overall $800 million globally. Though the first part was directed by Patty Jenkins, however, it was not confirmed whether she would be directing the second part also or not.
Warner Bros. has released a clip from the Wonder Woman featurette "A Director's Vision: A Photograph Through Time", an extra included on the film's Blu-ray.

The 23-year-old has scored 49 goals in 98 games for Juventus since his arrival in the summer of 2015. To go three games against them without conceding a goal [this year] would be extraordinary.
Jenkins' sequel is expected to be released on December 13, 2019, with over two years to prepare.
Directors like Ava DuVernay are working to spotlight and hire more female directors and crew members, and it looks like Jenkins has been fighting the pay inequity fight. Personally, I trust in Patty's vision for the character and I think she will do awesome with the sequel. It would give them a different competitive edge on Marvel, who have so far only made solo movies about male superheroes.
