The Old Guard series took Netflix over a strong in 2020 when the action drama series starring Charlize Theron made its debut on the streamer. The subscribers of Netflix were introduced to an elite fighting force comprised of the four immortals named Andy, Joe, Nick, and Booker. All of them together quartet the effect of the course of history in which they pick, choose and intervene. 

However, due to the increased advancement in technology, staying hidden gets difficult. Thus they discover a new immortal being like them and her name was the Nile. After that their world entirely changes as they help her adjust to a new life while being hunted. 

In August 2021, Netflix confirmed that there will be a sequel of the series which is on the way and it will bring back the cast of the original movie including Kiki Layne and Charlize Theron. However, there has been a major change behind the scenes with Victoria Mahoney taking over as a director. 

The first movie director Gina Prince-Bythewood is now staying on board as producer and she is excited to see what Mahoney does now with the sequel. She said in her statement: “Genuinely blown backward by the collective levels of talent, skill and savvy that went into carving The Old Guard,” she enthused. “I must have watched it over a hundred times, and as such, cannot communicate the true measure of my excitement.”

Now, all we can say is that Old Guard 2 is a story that ended up with a plot twist that begged to be explored in the second series of the movie. However, now what we can expect from the sequel of The Old Guard? Here’s everything we know about the series. 

How many The Old Guard movies are there?

As of now, there is only a single The Old Guard movie which is available to stream on Netflix. However, the comic book series on which the movie is dependent has two volumes and there is also an anthology series that is set to release in December 2021, so there is plenty of room for getting multiple sequels to The Old Guard. 

Will there be a The Old Guard 2? What We Know 

Fortunately, the answer is a big yes. Yes, there will be a sequel for The Old Guard series movie. That’s because Greg Rucka who wrote the comic book on which the movie is dependent is back to write the sequel of the series. He always envisioned the story of The Old Guard as a trilogy, so this might not be the end of the series even if the sequel proves to be a hit amongst the audience. 

The Old Guard 2 cast

In the first part of the movie, there was only a single casualty that was of Harry Melling’s Merrick. So we can expect all the characters to return back in The Old Guard 2 except for him. There will be many familiar faces from the first part of The Old Guard 2. Some of them are: 

  • Veronica Ngo as Quynh
  • Marwan Kenzari as Joe
  • Charlize Theron as Andy
  • KiKi Layne as the Nile
  • Matthias Schoenaerts as Booker
  • Chiwetel Ejiofor as Copley
  • Luca Marinelli as Nicky

The Old Guard 2 release date predictions

According to the reports from variety, The Old Guard season 3 is going to start its filming schedule in the first quarter of 2022. With the first quarter filming date, we cannot expect the movie to be out until fall or winter of 2022. We are also not stating any dates for 2023 as of now. But as soon as makers confirm something we will surely share it here. 

Before the announcement of the sequel of the series, Theron had said in a statement in June 2021 that the script is complete only the filming has to begin. So, we would not be surprised if the sequel will be released in July 2023. That’s also because the first part of the movie was also released in July and it worked quite well for it and made it one of the most-watched Netflix movies ever. 

The Old Guard 2 trailer: Any footage from The Old Guard 2 yet?

Even though it’s confirmed that we will be getting The Old Guard 2 movie very soon, it’s been a while since we have not seen any footage or any little trailer from The Old Guard. So if the filming starts in early 2022 then we can expect something from the set. may or may not. 

So this was all which we knew about The Old Guard 2, from its expected release date to everything else. However, there is no official news or statement recently from the makers that are also the reason we don’t have any glimpse of the movie as well.
