It’s soon two years since Purple Hearts‘ arrived on Netflix globally. Although fans have been clamoring for a sequel on the streamer, there are currently no plans. That’s not to say there’s no good news. Sofia Carson has just been announced to be part of a new romantic comedy for the streamer. 

Starring Sofia Carson and Nicholas Galitzine, Purple Hearts is one of Netflix’s best and most-watched romance movies. Based on the novel by Tess Wakefield, the movie tells the story of an aspiring musician who agrees to a marriage of convenience with a soon-to-deployed Marine.

Before Netflix switched to its new 91-day metric to cover its all-time top-performing titles, Purple Hearts ranked as the ninth most-watched movie of all time, with 228.69 million hours watched within the first 28 days globally on the service.

Fake Facebook Posts Suggest A Sequel is Coming Soon

Throughout 2023, we’ve posted numerous times about fake news floating about on Facebook regarding news on movies and series getting sequels when they are not. It started with The Queen’s Gambit, and recently, we noticed viral posts about 365 Days 4 coming out. Both are, sadly, not true.

The pages are all Netflix fan pages that earn money through affiliate programs. There are multiple fake pages, including “Netflix Addict,” “The Netflix Memes,” and “Netflix Daily Updates.”

Disclosure: What’s on Netflix has subsequently purchased the Netflix Daily Updates page and removed any offending posts.

Over the past few months, they’ve regularly posted about Purple Hearts 2 “coming soon,” and sadly, it’s not currently the case that there’s going to be a sequel. Many of the posts pick up tens of thousands of likes and shares.

Fake posts on Facebook for Purple Hearts 2

Most posts also contain links to fellow Netflix news sites, such as Netflix Life, which purportedly backs up the claim of there being a sequel. Sadly, if you navigate to said page, it says no such thing. Here’s what it says:

“As of May 2023, Netflix has not indicated that a sequel is in the works. The chances of there being a Purple Hearts 2 are slim to none. The romantic drama wraps up pretty neatly, with Cassie and Luke ending up together. So, a continuation of the story seems unnecessary.”

What has been said about a sequel of Purple Hearts?

Not much, but the movie’s producers did have some thoughts following its initial release in 2022. As of 2024, there are no official plans or any active rumblings of a sequel.

Speaking to Variety, Sofia Carson potentially teased a sequel and what it could be about, saying:

“Now fans have kind of been demanding a sequel and there’s so many fan theories and fan stories and potential spinoffs, so of course it’s lovely to think of a life for Cassie and Luke beyond this film. I adore being Cassie and I’d be curious to see where it goes. Who knows. You never know!”

In that same interview, Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum (the producer on the movie) echoed Carson’s sentiments, saying:

“We wouldn’t do anything unless we really, really loved it, because we want to stay true to the integrity. We haven’t landed on anything specific yet. It’s always a possibility.”

Sofia Carson Does Have Two New Projects at Netflix in 2024

We have two pieces of good news to close out this article.

Sofia Carson will soon be appearing in another Netflix Original movie. Confirmed to land in 2024, Carson will appear alongside Taron Egerton in Carry On.

In March 2024, we revealed that Netflix is also working on a new romantic comedy called The Life List, in which Carson will appear alongside Kyle Allen, Sebastian De Souza, and Connie Britton. It adapts the book of the same name with Carson playing the role of Alex Rose. Production kicked off on the movie in 2024 with no release date set as of yet.

The other good news is that we revealed how long Netflix will keep Purple Hearts. As you may know, Netflix acquired the rights to the movie from Alloy Entertainment and will stream it for 30 years, with it currently set to expire in 2052.
