We now have confirmation that The Babysitter 2 is happening, and we can’t wait to see what McG has in store for the bloody sequel. As details continue to be revealed, we’ll be updating everything that we know so far on The Babysitter 2.

The Babysitter 2 is an upcoming Netflix Original horror and sequel to 2017’s The Babysitter. McG will be returning to direct the film, and many cast members have been confirmed to be returning to reprise their roles. The writer of the first film was Brian Duffield, but it’s unclear at this time if he will be returning to write the sequel.

Two years on after surviving his deadly babysitter’s satanic and murderous cult, Cole is trying to move on with his life and is now attending high school. After the unexpected return of some of the cult members, Cole, once again has to rise to the occasion and outsmart the forces of evil.

We are waiting for confirmation from Netflix on their return.

Is Samara Weaving returning?

At the time of writing, there is no confirmation that Samara Weaving will be reprising her role as Bee in The Babysitter 2. It would be incredibly disappointing if she doesn’t return as the ending of the first film revealed that she had survived and is on the loose. Along with the plot of the sequel, it would make sense for the character to be the mastermind behind the cult’s return.

This doesn’t mean she isn’t returning, so hopefully, we hear more news soon!
