We have good news to share, Netflix Lifers! Netflix has just announced that a Troll 2 is officially happening. If you’re just as excited as us about the upcoming sequel, you must continue reading to find out everything there is to know about it.

Troll premiered on Netflix back in December 2022 and was an instant hit. But fans weren’t sure if there would be a continuation of the film since there had been complete radio silence from Netflix about a potential sequel.

Now, almost 10 months later, we finally have an answer. We haven’t seen the last of Troll, and we can’t wait to see the new Troll movie on Netflix in the future.

Here’s everything you need to know about Troll 2.

Troll 2 is happening at Netflix

On Sept. 19, Netflix announced that it had ordered a sequel to the hit Norwegian monster film Troll. According to Variety, the same creative team behind the first film will return for the sequel. This means Roar Uthaug returns as director with Espen Aukan writing the screenplay. In addition, Espen Horn and Kristian Strand Sinkerud return to produce.

Producers Horn and Sinkerud previously spoke with What’s on Netflix when the first movie came out and mentioned that they were open to doing a sequel if given the chance. Well, it looks like their dream has come true because Troll 2 is really happening.

How did Troll perform on Netflix?

Troll is Netflix’s most popular non-English movie of all time, with a whopping 178,600,000 hours viewed. The first film reportedly garnered 103,000,000 views in its first 91 days on the platform. It also reportedly ranked in the Top 10 in 93 countries and rose to the top of the charts in Norway, the U.S., and the U.K.

What is Troll 2 about?

There aren’t really any plot details about the sequel just yet, but Horn and Sinkerud said that Troll 2 will be “again spinning on a Norwegian fairy tale figure.” Once more plot details are revealed, we’ll make sure to share them right away.

Who’s in the Troll 2 cast?

An official cast list hasn’t been revealed either. However, Horn and Sinkerud said that the sequel will once again feature a cast of Norwegians. As cast members are announced, we’ll be sure to share their names and who they will play in the film.

When will Troll 2 start filming?

Production is reportedly set to start sometime in 2024. However, an official production schedule hasn’t been revealed yet. We’re probably looking at about three months of production at least. This is how long production took for the first film. Afterward, the sequel should then immediately move into post-production, where it will spend the most time being edited to perfection.

Troll 2 release updates: When could the sequel arrive on Netflix?

It’s hard to give a release prediction since production hasn’t even started. However, we’re probably looking at a release sometime in 2025. After filming wrapped on the first film in November 2021, it took a little over a year for it to come out. If the sequel was to follow a similar release pattern, we would most likely be looking at a 2025 release. We should have a better release prediction once the cameras start rolling on the sequel.
