Netflix is releasing a Knives Out sequel, and it will star Janelle Monáe

Here’s everything we know about the Knives Out sequel, which is coming to Netflix soon.

Chris Evans’ cable-knit jumper. Daniel Craig’s questionable accent. Toni Collette’s perfect portrayal of a lifestyle guru. Yep, Knives Out was one of the best films of 2019. It had all the ingredients for a seriously fun whodunnit, including an amazing cast, a plot full of twists and turns, and a bloody big mansion (who doesn’t find rich people entertaining?). 

So fans will be delighted to hear that a sequel is in the works.
