The School for Good and Evil is Netflix’s latest fantasy film to come out. Most people have already watched the movie and are wondering if there will be a sequel. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place because we shared all that we know about a potential The School for Good and Evil 2.
The School for Good and Evil was helmed by Paul Feig and stars Sophia Anne Caruso and Sofia Wylie as two best friends who find their friendship put to the test when they’re kidnapped and taken away to a magical school for aspiring young heroes and villains. Like most Netflix movies, this movie is based on a book. It’s a film adaptation of Soman Chainani’s 2013 novel of the same name, which is a part of a New York Times bestselling book series.
Besides Caruso and Wylie, the cast is made up of Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Laurence Fishburne, Michelle Yeoh, Cate Blanchett, Jamie Flatters, Kit Young, and many others. This film is very action-packed and will have you glued to the screen the entire time. We highly recommend watching it when you get the chance if you haven’t already.
So, should we be expecting a sequel to arrive on Netflix in the future? Here’s everything we know about The School for Good and Evil 2.
Is The School for Good and Evil 2 happening?
As of Oct. 19, Netflix has not announced if there will be a sequel. However, there’s no cause for concern at the moment because The School for Good and Evil just came out. Netflix rarely announces a sequel to a film right after it’s been released. The streamer will have to see how many people watched the fantasy film over a certain period of time on their platform before coming to a decision.
The first four weeks of a Netflix film’s release are the most important. Depending on how many people watch The School for Good and Evil in the first 28 days of its release is one way in which Netflix will determine if it’s worth producing an additional installment to the movie. If the viewership numbers are high enough, the streamer might go ahead and give the green light for a sequel.
Another factor going into Netflix’s decision-making process is production costs. The cost to make The School for Good and Evil is unknown, but I’m sure it cost a pretty penny with all the CGI and special effects used. However, if tons of people watch the film, the streamer might look past production costs and The School for Good and Evil 2 could happen.
There’s definitely more story to tell based on how the fantasy film ended. Also, there are five more novels a part of The School for Good and Evil book series that could be adapted into movies. We just need Netflix to make the right decision by announcing a sequel.
So, to better the chances of Netflix handing out a sequel, tell everyone you know about The School for Good and Evil and get them to watch it!
The School for Good and Evil is now streaming on Netflix.
