Red Notice 2 is officially happening at Netflix, and fans are eager to know when filming will commence for the sequel.

Red Notice premiered on Netflix on Nov. 12, and subscribers immediately flocked to the streamer to see if the action film was really worth the hype. In the end, the movie was a huge success and became the most-watched film within the first four weeks of release on the platform. It received praise for its humor, stellar cast, fast-paced plot, and fun plot twists.

After watching Red Notice, viewers couldn’t help but wonder if there would be a sequel. The film’s ending definitely paved the way for a second installment. Also, more than enough people watched the movie to warrant a Red Notice 2.

Luckily, Netflix decided to give the go-ahead for two sequels, which means we haven’t seen the last of the dynamic trio (Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot). Obviously, it will be a long time before we get to see Red Notice 3. But when could we see Red Notice 2 make its way to Netflix? Has production on the sequel even started yet? We shared everything we know about where the sequel is in the filmmaking process down below.

Is Red Notice 2 filming yet?

We wish production had started already, but that’s not the case. According to Deadline, Netflix is in the early stages of development for the sequel. It’s been reported that the streamer is hoping to begin principal photography in early 2023. This start date isn’t set in stone, though. It’s contingent on the leading stars’ busy schedules and if it’s safe to shoot at that time.

The good news is that Johnson, Reynolds, and Gadot are set to reprise their roles in the sequel. Netflix just needs to make sure everything is in order before starting production.

Red Notice 2 release updates

Since it’s still early in the filmmaking process, we’re not expecting to learn of a release date any time soon. However, we’ll share our release date predictions. With a tentative production start date in early 2023, we could be looking at a holiday release sometime in November or December 2023. But we can’t rule out a 2024 release because there isn’t a set production schedule. Production could be pushed into later in the year, which could then push the release date into the following year.

We’ll have a better idea of when Red Notice 2 could come to Netflix once things get further in the filmmaking process. So make sure to stay tuned to Netflix Life for more news and coverage on Red Notice 2.
