Popular Netflix Original Movies That Are Now Spawning Their Own Film Franchise

2022 is going to be AWESOME

Netflix Original Movies are kicking up a storm these days. Many of the Netflix Original movies have ended up becoming fan favorites and are now spawning their very own movie franchise.

Space Sweepers

This Korean sci-fi action-drama blew us all away when it came last year. Space Sweepers has everything a sci-fi lover could ask for – suspense, thrill, and lost and lots of outer space adventure. Sadly there were no talks of a sequel until a short while ago. Reports have started coming in that Jeong Seong Jin and Jeong Cheol Min, VFX supervisors in the original movie, have been roped in for a sequel. If that is true, a Space Sweepers sequel is a go. There are a lot many questions the original movie failed to answer. A Space Sweepers sequel could give us some closure on that regard.

Extraction

Extraction 2

This Chris Hemsworth starrer was called THE action movie of the year in 2020. Extraction is coming back with a sequel. Hemsworth returns in the movie along with director Sam Hargraves. The movie will be based on the novel Ciudad, written by Ande Parks, Joe Russo, Anthony Russo, Fernando León González, and Eric Skillman. Joe Russo is returning as the chief writer for the film. 2022 has not many action blockbusters in the slate so Extraction 2 is most welcome to wow us all. We want more of Hemsworth’s chiseled, Greek God looks and we want them now!!

The Old Guard

Netflix took quite some time to come up with the plans for The Old Guard 2. But they have finally decided to move ahead with it. Plans for The Old Guard 2 came along with the platform renewing its push for more Netflix Original movies into its content library. The Old Guard 2 will take things up a notch. The movie is being written again by Greg Rucka and many of the original cast members are returning. Things will obviously be taken up a notch. There are even rumors that The Old Guard will have a threequel although those are just rumors for now. The movie comes in 2023.

The Mitchells vs. The Machines

Mitchells vs. The Machines 2

The computer animated sci-fi comedy achieved its legendary status in 2021. Released in select theaters in April, the movie moved to the streaming platform just a week later. Sony Pictures sold the rights to Netflix, which became the movie’s chief distributor. Mike Rianda, the director of the movie, has already hinted at a sequel. Mitchells vs. The Machines was a truly heart-warming tale that broke the mold of traditional new age animated productions. It would be good to see the Mitchells back in action again, kicking butts and taking names once more.

Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf

Nightmare of the Wolf 2

Who knew The Witcher franchise could spawn Netflix Original Movies? Netflix took a gamble and made an anime movie that served as a prequel to the hit series. The success of Nightmare of the Wolf has strengthened the platform’s views on its Netflix Original movies’ vision. And they have decided to bank on Nightmare of the Wolf’s success with another anime movie based on the Witcher franchise. For now, we are unsure if the new anime movie will be a sequel or based on a totally unrelated story arc. But all we know is that the Witcher anime movies are bringing in huge money for Netflix and that’s why they are moving ahead with the project.

Tall Girl

Tall Girl 2

The success of Tall Girl was totally unexpected given there are a lot more Netflix Original movies that failed to make a mark last year. But somehow the tale of the tallest girl in school who gets trapped in a love triangle with a foreign exchange student hit a chord with the viewers. Tall Girl 2 is coming and Sam Wolfson has been hired to write the story for the sequel. Of all the Netflix Original movies on this list, Tall Girl 2 is the only one that has stuck to its schedule even with the ongoing pandemic. Principal photography concluded in May 2021 and the movie will be coming on February 22 this year.
