This article speculates on the possibility of a The Strays 2 and contains spoilers for the 2023 Netflix film.
On February 22, 2023, Netflix debuted Nathaniel Martello-feature White’s film debut, “Forced to Face Her Past,” which is about a woman who must confront her history. Neve, a light-skinned black lady who leaves her kids behind and starts over in an upper-class area that is primarily white, is portrayed in the movie by Ashley Madekwe.
The two children she abandoned eventually make a comeback and endanger the ideal life she built for herself. The reception to this British thriller has been, at best, lukewarm. While it has a 71% approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, fans on IMDB were less kind and only gave it a score of 4.6/10.
It would be an understatement to say that The Strays had an unclear ending. Additionally, sequels to movies that were first released as stand-alone stories are never ruled out in the horror genre. What are the chances of this movie getting a sequel?
The Strays sequel potential release date
As of this writing, there have been no formal discussions about a potential The Strays sequel. However production on the movie began in November 2021, and it debuted on Netflix in February 2023. Based on the history of the film, an early 2025 release date is definitely feasible if Martello-White decides to develop a sequel.
The Strays sequel cast – who might be in it?
It would be wonderful to have Ashley Madekwe return as their callous mother Neve, as well as Jorden Myrie, Bukky Bakray, Maria Almeida, and Samuel Small in their roles as the four abandoned siblings. In a recent interview, Myrie did express curiosity in a potential plot continuation, saying, “We would talk about it on set. We will discuss what we believe might occur and what the possible course of events would be, he told Digital Spy.
It’s safe to assume that Justin Salinger’s character, Ian, won’t appear in the sequel because he perished tragically while performing bench presses (in a sequence intended to make any sane person swear off exercising forever).
The Strays sequel plot: what could The Strays 2 be about?
In the final scene of The Strays, Neve does what she does best and abandons both the two black children she left behind and her two adopted children with Ian, confusing the other three. Mary and Sebastian were abandoned in the care of their two harsher and less stable siblings.
The second installment might take place a few years after the events of the first film and feature the four siblings searching for Neve. Ultimately, Mary and Sebastian make the decision to make their undeserving mother pay for her faults after seeing Marvin and Abigail’s suffering. Neve, on the other hand, fled the nation, wed a wealthy guy, and began living a life of luxury on a Caribbean island. Naturally, her flawless façade is once again put in jeopardy when all four of her kids find her and find out what’s going on.
