One of the most eagerly awaited Netflix original movies for 2022 is likely Knives Out 2. Fans were overjoyed when it was revealed that Netflix had invested in Knives Out 2 and Knives Out 3, both because the movies will now be more widely available and because it confirms a trilogy!
The sequel’s official title, as revealed by Netflix on June 13, 2022, is Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. The original picture, which Rian Johnson both directed and wrote, debuted in 2019 and was among the most enjoyable films of the year, getting a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
The two Netflix movies will be written and directed by Rian Johnson, who also wrote and directed the previous movie. Everything you need to know about Knives Out 2 is below, including the release date, plot summary, cast information, and more.

Knives Out 2 Plot
We don’t know what the story will be about because the second Knives Out movie’s storyline details are still being kept a secret. While we can attempt to infer the prospective plot from the title, “glass onion” can refer to various things. It can describe a certain kind of monocle, wine bottle, or light fixture.
The famous song by The Beatles, which is indicative of transparency and many facets of mystery, may also be referenced in the title. Whatever the story, we can count on it to be another suspenseful international whodunit mystery.
Knives Out 2 Cast
None of the prominent cast members from Knives Out will return, save from Daniel Craig. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who starred in Johnson’s Brick and Loop and worked with the filmmaker on his TV variety series, is omitted. Perhaps he is keeping him for the third movie? The future?
The new cast is just as impressive as the original, with just Madelyn Cline and Jessica Henwick being relative unknowns.
Cline is one of the main characters in the Netflix adolescent drama Outer Banks and has brief roles in the television series Stranger Things(opens in new tab) and The Originals. Henwick’s first major part was revealed in the Netflix and Marvel production Iron Fist.

Knives Out 2 Release Date
There is currently no definite release date for Knives Out 2 because Netflix prefers to keep its release dates a secret. However, according to a Variety report, the movie was set to release by the end of 2022 with the possibility of awards season marketing. Netflix declined to comment further in response to the article regarding a release date.

Javier Bardem, Daniel Craig’s co-star in the Skyfall film, was quoted the actor as saying in Variety. “It’s in the can. It’s currently being edited by Rian [Johnson], and I believe it will be released this fall.
As a result, filming has ended, with Johnson stating that it was wrapped up around the middle of September 2021. With a month of filming on the Greek island of Spetses, as well as in New York City and Serbia, the sequel has a more international vibe than the first, which was exclusively filmed in Massachusetts.
It’s rumored that the movie will play in cinemas for 45 days as part of a new Netflix marketing plan, but it hasn’t been confirmed whether this will happen at the same time as the movie debuts on the streaming site or sooner.
Knives Out 2 Trailer
Glass Onion has yet to have an official trailer. However, it was included in Netflix’s preview of upcoming movies on February 3, 2022. You can see a preview of the film here.
How Can You Watch The Knives Out 2?
Despite knowing the ending, Knives Out is the kind of mystery thriller that begs to be rewatched because it is so engaging and well-crafted. Even though it is no longer showing in your area, it can be viewed from the convenience of your home.
Knives Out aren’t currently accessible on any recognized streaming services. Still, it may be rented digitally through Amazon Prime Video if you hurry (this could change after Glass Onion debuts on Netflix). The movie is also available on Blu-ray and DVD from Amazon if you like to keep things old school.
