A new mystery is afoot in Knives Out 2, and you can watch it all unfold from the comfort of your couch. Rian Johnson’s sequel to his jaw-dropping mystery movie will release on Netflix later this year, according to Variety.
Following the success of 2019’s mystery, Netflix dropped an insane $450 million on the second and third installments of the murderous movies back in March 2021. The streaming service is looking to capitalize on the film’s massive success with creating a franchise.
We don’t know yet what the mystery even is, although we guess that’s sort of the point. But we do know that everyone’s favorite detective is on the case. That’s right, Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) will return with his ambiguous accent and an all new cast. And if you thought the first film had a stacked cast, check out who’s joining the who-dunnit franchise: Kathryn Hahn, Ethan Hawke, Edward Norton, Dave Bautista, Kate Hudson, Janelle Monáe, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick and Madelyn Cline will all play a part in the mystery.
The film doesn’t have an exact release date yet, but be on the lookout near the end of 2022.
