“I would love to do more… it’s up to the audience, so we will see. I will tell you that just based off of reaction so far and what we’ve been able to cull from the audiences, there’s a good chance that we will see a return of this,”
Although unconfirmed, Red Notice definitely planned to have sequels, one of which was rumored for an early 2023 release but that doesn’t seem to be the case so now. Rumors of the production beginning in early 2023 are abundant on the Internet, and there could potentially be a November 2023 release.
