Fans just got an exciting update on the status of Netflix's Red Notice 2 ahead of its release.
Red Notice became the fifth-most-streamed movie across all streaming services in 2021, featuring an all-star trio of Deadpool's Ryan Reynolds, Black Adam's Dwayne Johnson, and Wonder Woman's Gal Gadot.
Following that success, Netflix almost immediately gave a greenlight for two sequels to go into production, with the streamer hoping to earn the same success that it did with the first Red Notice adventure.
Red Notice 2 Makes Headway
Speaking with Collider at Netflix's 2023 TUDUM event, Gal Gadot confirmed that Red Notice 2 is still set to release following several news of dead silence about the sequel.
Gadot confirmed that a script for the sequel is now complete:
"We're all talking about it. I don't know if I can say anything! I already read the second script and it’s… whoo! We're all very excited about it!"
While a production listing noted that Red Notice 2 and Red Notice 3 would begin filming back-to-back in January 2023, that date has come and gone without any sign of production starting.
The first Red Notice went through production in January-March 2020 and again in September-November before debuting on Netflix on November 4, 2021.
When Will Red Notice 2 Release on Netflix?
Even though Gal Gadot mentioned the fact that the latest script for Red Notice 2 is now complete, there's still no confirmation of when it will start shooting or release on Netflix.
However, it's unlikely that Netflix will want to sit long on a script that'll turn one of its most successful movies into a true franchise.
With Johnson and Gadot now having left the DC Universe in the rearview mirror (even though Gadot may not be definitive there), fans should expect Red Notice 2 to release within the next couple of years, but no earlier than the second half of 2025.
Red Notice is currently streaming on Netflix.
