Knives Out 2 Netflix Release Date: Knives Out was an instant hit when it hit theaters in 2019. You don’t have to be Benoit Blanc to figure that out. This murder mystery has been critically acclaimed, did well at the box office, and won awards for its quirky humor, sharp editing, and strong cast (including an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay).
When detective novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) died in a way that had never happened before, Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) investigation about “who killed who” at the Thrombey mansion immediately caught people’s attention. Now Netflix has given us the sequel Glass onion: a mystery at loggerheadswhich should be just as popular as the first movie.
Before Knives Out got so much attention, Knives Out writer/director Rian Johnson already wanted to make more movies with Craig’s instantly recognizable detective Benoit Blanc as the lead character. Johnson was happy to be able to continue making the film he had in mind. Here’s what we know about the sequel, which everyone is eagerly awaiting.
Here’s what we know so far about the film release date, new and returning cast members, and the future of what could be a long-running series.

Knives Out 2 Conspiracy Speculation
Iit’s a puzzle! Is this too obvious a joke? Sorry. But, to be honest, we’re not sure. Johnson and the cast were keen to keep the film’s secrets under wraps (for obvious reasons), with only a few bits of information leaking here and there.
We know that Knives Out 2 is not a sequel to the first film, so we won’t see Marta and the douchey Thrombey family again. Instead, it will be a new standalone film with Benoit embarking on a new adventure.
The character has been compared to Agatha Christie’s most famous creation, with Johnson recounting The Hollywood Reporter that the public should “think of it like another novel by Hercule Poirot by Agatha Christie, so a whole new place, a whole new cast. Hopefully it’s not as bad as Death on the Nile.

We also know the title of the mystery film. Johnson announced his Knives Out sequel, “Glass Onion: A Knives Out story,” on June 13, 2022. In the same tweet, Rian said he wanted his Benoit Blanc films to be inspired by Agatha Christie’s novels. Accordingly, each film will have its own tone, ambition, purpose and title.
Depending on the filming location, we can infer that this mystery will depart from the sleepy American East Coast for a much more exotic location. Sadly, you can change the setting but not humanity’s darkest impulses, and we suspect (but haven’t confirmed) that Benoit will investigate another diabolical murder mystery.
Knives Out 2 was an instant hit when it released in 2019. Glass onion: a mystery at loggerheads should be as popular as its predecessor. Daniel Craig returns as Detective Benoit Blanc. The sequel will premiere at the Toronto and BFI London Film Festivals in 2022. Knives Out 2 is not a sequel to the first film.
Benoit Blanc is about to embark on a new adventure. Director Rian Johnson wants his films to be inspired by Works by Agatha Christie.
