This article discusses whether there will be a Lou 2, a sequel to the Netflix movie Lou (2022) and will contain spoilers.
The new Netflix movie Lou arrives on the waves of the streaming giant. With the popularity of such humble action stars as Bob Odenkirk’s recent vehicle No one and Sylvester Stallones Samaritan, Lou could have long, evergreen legs for Netflix. However, Lou has something these other films don’t have – Allison Janney. In the midst of the renaissance of female empowerment, Janney’s ode to the roles of Geena Davis and Sigourney Weaver is more relevant than ever.
Lou (2022) possible release date of the sequel
Lou Released on Netflix on Friday September 23, 2022. The film currently has a 67% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Our film critic MN Miller says the film is “an excruciatingly boring thriller”. If the film has lasting legs on Netflix and embraces the theme of women’s empowerment and sees them in traditional male action roles, we could see a sequel by fall 2024.
Lou (2022) Cast of the sequel – who can be there?
Technically, anyone can do this, but listen to me. The main characters from the cast who survived are Jurnee Smollett’s Hannah, Ridley Asha Bateman’s Vee, and Matt Craven’s Sheriff Rankin, all of whom originally survived the script’s storyline. When we last saw them, Hannah and Vee were on a ferry crossing the water. Sheriff Craven helped Hannah pack around the house. Two other characters that might make an appearance are federal agents Lee and Hampton. They are currently looking for the evidence Lou hid about the Iranian takeover. Oh, and possibly Lou since her body was never recovered.
Yes, the last time we saw Lou she was adrift on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean and we thought she might have been swept up in a current. Keep in mind that we never saw if anyone got pulled into the plane when the helicopter hit the water. The last scene shows a woman, we suspect Lou, holding binoculars while watching her family. How do we know? The woman with the binoculars, like Lou, has one hand.
And I have another thought for you – we never saw Philips’ body recovered either.
Lou (2022) Sequel plot – what can Lou 2 be about?
Lou could be on the run and take care of her family. However, does that mean that Hannah and Vee could be part of the plot? Yes and no. Maybe the movie is about the FBI chasing Lou on the run. However, I could imagine a story where the government uses Lou’s family as pawns to bring our favorite killer out of hiding.
The second idea goes back to Philip. As I said, technically we haven’t seen any recovered bodies. And even if Philip was pumped full of lead, we all know that under Hollywood rules, state machine gun wounds can easily miss vital organs when sequels are at stake, when money is at stake. My point is this: Lou and Philip seemed to have their problems resolved, or at least some kind of forgiveness. Maybe Philip is alive and in federal custody. I can easily imagine a movie about Lou infiltrating such a facility to free her son and pay him back for all the mistakes she made as a mother.
