Extraction 3 release date speculation, cast, plot, and more news

Chris Hemsworth's last Netflix movie left Vienna in ruins and fans wanting more. Here's everything we know about Extraction 3 release date.

Extraction 3 release date

What’s the Extraction 3 release date? After more than three years, Netflix’s answer to Mission Impossible returned in 2023 for a second round. Yep — Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) finally reemerged from the murky waters of the Buriganga River for Extraction 2 earlier this year, and we loved it.

The Extraction sequel saw Rake jump straight back into the game after a mysterious stranger came knocking on his door. The Netflix movie‘s follow-up was highly anticipated, and it didn’t disappoint. (It’s probably one of the best action movies made by Netflix this year.) Now there’s a third movie on the way, so we’ve extracted everything you need to know.

Extraction 3 release date speculation

Chris Hemsworth has confirmed talks for Extraction 3 have started, and we imagine Netflix will release the movie in the summer of 2025 or 2026. 

The 2023 Writers Strike and Actors Strike caused severe delays to a number of productions. Although both strikes are now over, we think that a project of this magnitude will require a lot of pre-production and planning, so we don’t expect a release date before 2025.

The third movie was confirmed at the Netflix TUDUM event earlier this year, and in November 2023, Netflix film chief Scott Stuber confirmed that while things were still moving, they were moving slowly.

“We’re waiting on the script and working hard, but aspiration would be great to get it back,” he said [via Collider]. “I mean, what those guys have done has been really great in that franchise.”

Extraction 3 cast speculation

Chris Hemsworth will be back in the lead role as Tyler Rake, which makes sense, since he’s the head of the Extraction cast.

It’s likely, considering the ending of Extraction 2, that Idris Elba’s character Alcott will play a major role as well. On the creative side of things, it was confirmed that Sam Hargrave would be back to direct, making this a real-life team-up of epic proportions. It’s good to have someone we trust helm this action-packed series yet again.

Here is the expected Extraction 3 cast list:

  • Chris Hemsworth as Tyler Rake
  • Golshifteh Farahani as Nik Kahn
  • Idris Elba as Alcott

What will Extraction 3 be about?

Extraction 2 will likely pick up where the second film left off, when Tyler and Nik were in jail for smashing their way through most of Vienna.

The pair are freed, however, by Alcott, who offers them the opportunity to work for a “gnarly motherfucker” who apparently Rake will love.

It seems inevitable then that Nik and Tyler will start doing jobs for whoever this mysterious figure is, and that’s where their next adventure will begin. Other than that, though, we don’t know much about the Extraction 3 plot.

…But we know what we’d like to see. So far, Tyler’s caused collateral damage in Asia and Europe. It’s time for the one-man wrecking crew to smash up an American city, we think.

Is there an Extraction 3 trailer?

There’s no Extraction 3 trailer yet, but we expect one to drop in the first half of 2025.

Production hasn’t started yet, so sadly, there’s nothing for us to see. If our 2025/2026 release date theory has legs, then we’d be looking at early 2025 for a full trailer, but no sooner.

We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for any upcoming looks/teasers. In the meantime, you can revisit one of the insane fight scenes from the first movie below, just to remind yourself of what we’re in for.
