When is Red Notice 2 coming out? Well, you’re in the right place to find out. The Netflix exclusive premiered to resounding success in November 2021, with record-breaking figures marking it the most-watched movie Netflix has ever made.
Unsurprisingly, with almost 329 million viewing hours by users around the world in the first 28 days, yes, there will indeed be a Red Notice 2. Thank goodness, really, since Red Notice was also reportedly Netflix’s most expensive movie to date, costing more than $200 million.
Armed with such a big budget meant that Red Notice could and continues to be fronted by a superstar triad of Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson, and Gal Gadot. Or, also sometimes known as Deadpool, Luke Hobbs, and Wonder Woman. This global heist flick will be returning to Netflix with a brand new instalment, and we’ve got everything you need to know about the Red Notice 2 release date, including information on the cast, plot, and more. Man, oh man, are we in for an all-action treat.
Red Notice 2 release date speculation
We know Red Notice 2 is coming, but we don’t know when just yet. Because of the success of the first comedy thriller movie, we streaming service Netflix will be keen to get Red Notice 2 up and running as soon as possible. Writer and director Rawson Marshall Thurber has previously said that if Red Notice 2 and 3 got greenlit, then he’d shoot them back-to-back.
According to Deadline, this is exactly where Netflix currently stands as they begin the early stages of production with hopes to go full force in early 2023, dependent on deals and the stars’ schedules. But, with such huge stars fronting the movie(s), it’ll need some scheduling finesse to get this to Netflix.
The Rock! Best Dwayne Johnson movies
Throw in the fact that Ryan Reynolds announced an acting hiatus on Instagram in October 2021 following some intense filming alongside Will Ferrell in the upcoming movie, Spirited, and we’ll have to wait and see.
If we take that into consideration and say they started filming in early 2023, there’s potential for a release date towards the end of 2023. But, should production run later or get squashed up by Red Notice 3, then it could be 2024. With back-to-back production, though, the wait between 2 and 3 might be smaller.
Red Notice 2 plot speculation
Red Notice ended with a glorious plot twist revealing that Hartley (Johnson) had, in fact, been working alongside The Bishop the whole time in order to acquire the three eggs. The sequel will more than likely pick up on this storyline.
Viewers and Booth (Reynolds) were led to believe up to this point that The Bishop was Gal Gadot. When, in fact, it was a dual role, and they’re actually a couple(!).
With this revelation, the pair set Booth up for arrest by Interpol, who has been hot on their tails the entire time. Cut to months later, and Hartley and The Bishop are luxuriating on a yacht in the middle of the ocean when Booth turns up.

To secure his release from Interpol, he revealed the details of the pair’s secret off-shore bank account and had all their money seized. Leaving them… open for a new “three-thief job”. Hooray! We’re given a glimpse into the potential plot of Red Notice 2 as the scene cuts to Paris as the trio are seen outside the Louvre Museum, plotting their next move.
So, we’re officially teed up for a sequel with the forecast of another bigger and better heist for the trio promising big, splashy headlines, just how Booth likes it.
Who Will be in the Red Notice 2 cast?
It wouldn’t be Red Notice without the leading stars, Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson, and Gal Gadot. So, we’d fully expect the trio to return for another big heist in Red Notice 2. As mentioned, the stars will quite literally have to align for Red Notice 2 to take place.
We’re also left wondering if we could see the supporting cast members of Red Notice, Ritu Arya and Chris Diamantopoulos, returning for the second movie.

Now, we know there’s a bit of a wait for more news on Red Notice 2, so if you’re looking for something to enjoy in the meantime, we’ve put together a list of the best action movies as well as the best comedy movies of all time.
