The thing about Netflix Originals is they’re extremely hit or miss. If you hit it off, you can become the next Stranger Things, and if you miss, you’ll end up like the live-action Cowboy Bebop. So Netflix tries at every step to make anything that sticks to its wall of blockbusters continue with sequels. So what happens when you hire the world’s most consistent superstars with records of providing the biggest hits one after the other?
Well, you get one of Netflix’s highest-grossing films of all time, Red Notice.
And sticking true to their model, Netflix has confirmed that the sequels are in production, and can be available to the audience sooner than they think.

In an interview with Collider, Producers Beau Flynn and Hiram Garcia gave a thumbs-up on the future sequels. Though the production has not started as of yet, there is a lot that’s in play in the background.
Flynn: “Well, we have a ‘Red Notice 2’ script and almost [Red Notice] 3. The plan is hopefully if Hiram and I have our way that we would make those movies back to back. But it’s going to be all about the scripts and how we feel and how Dwayne, Gal, and Ryan feel about them. But that franchise is a blast and obviously, Netflix really wants it, and Rawson [Marshall Thurber, director, and screenwriter] is committed.”
Adding to this, Garcia said:
“Yeah, Rawson (Marshall Thurber) is working away and we were just talking to him about it the other day. He’s deep in it and that’s his baby. So, he’s grinded away. We’re excited to be able to get into it and see a new draft that he’s about to deliver us to us very soon.”
