The excitement among fans has surged following an intriguing update on the much-anticipated Netflix sequel, Red Notice 2. The first film, distinguished as the fifth most-viewed movie on all streaming services in 2021, showcased a formidable ensemble of talent.

The lineup included the charismatic Ryan Reynolds, best known for his role in Deadpool, Dwayne Johnson, the power-packed star of Black Adam, and the iconic Gal Gadot, celebrated for her portrayal of Wonder Woman.

This triumphant combination led to a remarkable success, prompting the streaming giant to swiftly commission not just one, but two sequels, hoping to emulate the original film's triumph.

During the 2023 TUDUM event, Gal Gadot engaged with Collider, shattering the lingering uncertainty about the sequel and affirming that the production of Red Notice 2 is indeed making strides.

Gadot disclosed that the sequel's now-completed script has successfully ignited a fervor of excitement among the ensemble.

"We're all talking about it. I don't know if I can say anything! I already read the second script and it's… whoo! We're all very excited about it!" Gadot shared with Collider.

Despite a previously outlined schedule, which pinpointed the commencement of filming for both Red Notice 2 and Red Notice 3 in January 2023, the anticipated milestones remain unachieved, with no clear signs of production in sight.

To provide a comparison, the production of the initial Red Notice spanned two distinct periods, January-March and September-November of 2020, culminating in its laudable debut on Netflix on November 4, 2021.

While Gal Gadot confirmed that the script for the anticipated Red Notice 2 had been finalized, the official timeline for the commencement of production or the film's debut on Netflix remains mysterious.

However, it's hard to imagine the streaming studio to remaining idle with a script that can potentially expand one of its most successful movies into an established franchise.

The platform's commitment to the project suggests that wheels are already in motion behind the scenes.

For the foreseeable future, Ryan Reynolds will be deeply immersed in the production of Deadpool 3 in London, which suggests a delay in his involvement with Red Notice 2.

His much-anticipated appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) takes priority, inevitably tying him up for the following months.

Considering Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot's recent transition from the DC Universe (with Gadot's temporary exit), fans can reasonably expect Red Notice 2's release in the coming years, likely not before the latter half of 2025.

Their focus shift signals that their collective energies may be invested in this promising sequel.

As fans eagerly wait for the sequel, the original Red Notice continues to be available for streaming on Netflix.
