After the ending of The Babysitter, it left open a potential sequel that many fans were hoping would happen. 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 The writer of the first film was Brian Duffield but has since been replaced by Dan Lagana (American Vandal).

There’s no confirmation on when The Babysitter 2 is coming to Netflix.

With the film deep-rooted in post-production, we’re speculating that we won’t see the sequel arrive until October 2020.

Will The Babysitter 2 be available to stream in my region?

Certainly. The first film was available to stream in every region, and so will The Babysitter 2.

 Is Samara Weaving returning?

Sadly, all the evidence would suggest that Samara Weaving won’t be returning to reprise her role as Bee in The Babysitter 2. We’re also not sure if Bee will be returning in the sequel, but there’s every chance that a new actress may have been cast in the role, such as Jenna Ortega whose role has yet to be disclosed.

It’ll be a shame that Samara Weaving won’t be returning, but perhaps if a third film could be in line for the future, we may see her return.

What is the production status of The Babysitter 2?

Official Production Status: Post-Production (Last Updated: 26/05/2020)

It’s been a while since our last update, but plenty has happened with the production of The Babysitter 2 in that time.

Filming has concluded, having begun on October 14th, 2019, ending just over a month later on November 24th. The film has since been in post-production.

It’s unknown how far into the post-production The Babysitter 2 currently is as there’s been no news if the COVID-19 Pandemic has had an impact or not, but given the time frame, we suspect the vast majority of post-production was dealt with before lockdowns began.


What is the parental rating of The Babysitter 2?

The first film had a TV-MA rating and The Babysitter 2 should follow suit. The equivalent rating to US audiences is R or NC-17, in the UK this rating would be 15.

Will The Babysitter 2 be available in 4K?

The Babysitter 2 will definitely be available to stream in 4K upon release. To watch the film in 4K subscribers require a 4K device, an internet connection capable of maintaining 25Mbps, and of course, a 4K device.
