A third movie for Through My Window is also planned for the future.

Netflix Movies Sequels Coming Soon to Netflix
Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley
Expected to release in 2024
Set to be the fourth movie in the Beverly Hill Cop franchise by Paramount Pictures, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley will come exclusively to Netflix in 2024.
Eddie Murphy will return to play Axel Foley and star alongside several other big names, including Kevin Bacon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Judge Reinhold.
Code 8: Part II
Jeff Chan will return to direct a sequel to the sci-fi movie starring Stephen Amell and Robbie Amell.
Production on the sequel has wrapped filming and it’s unclear when Part 2 will be on Netflix but we’d expect it to be in 2023 or 2024 at the latest.
Knives Out 3
Netflix picked up Knives Out for two additional movies following the first being released by Lionsgate in 2019.
Not much is known about the third movie beyond the fact Rian Johnson will write and direct and Daniel Craig will once again return as Benoit Blanc.
Rebel Moon: Part II
Netflix has a lot of faith in Zack Snyder. Rebel Moon is the big new sci-fi fantasy movie that will see its first movie debut in December 2023. A sequel has already been greenlit ahead of this release (and, according to sources – may even be extended into other spinoffs, too) and will be released in the coming years.
Here’s a rundown of the plot for the first movie:
“When a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy finds itself threatened by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius, they dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past named Kora to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them take a stand.”
Red Notice 2 & 3
Red Notice still holds the accolade of being Netflix’s most-viewed movie within the first 28 days of release and, soon after its release in late 2021, was greenlit for an additional two movies.
Sadly, news on the sequels has been quiet ever since the initial announcement, but both movies, at one point, were expected to film back-to-back in 2023.
The Gray Man 2
Now the fifth biggest Netflix movie of all time, The Gray Man will receive a sequel soon.
Thus far, Joe Russo has said the following about the sequel:
“The sequel will be inspired by the Mark Greaney novel. Translating from one medium to another often requires interpretation, but we have an incredible amount of source material from an amazing offer. We’ll draw on that for the sequel.”
No word when production will start on the sequel or the spinoff movie, which was also announced, but we do know that Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese will write the script for the spinoff.
The Old Guard 2
Victoria Mahoney directs the sequel to the Charlize Theron action fantasy movie that will adapt the Force Multiplied comic.
Filming on the movie took place in Italy and UK throughout 2022 and was wrapped up by the end of the year.
The movie notably wasn’t included in the 2023 movie roster so it could release as late as 2024.
The Sea Beast 2
The Sea Beast has become one of Netflix’s most popular animated movies, and Chris Williams will be back to direct a sequel announced in late 2022.
The first movie, released in the summer of 2022, told the story of a young girl stowed away on a ship and traveled into uncharted waters after teaming up with the infamous Jacob Holland.
