John Krasinski Finally Revealed a Release Date for ‘A Quiet Place 2’ (& It’s Sooner Than You Think)

After years of impatiently waiting, it looks like we’re finally getting A Quiet Place 2.

On Thursday, John Krasinski—who wrote, directed and starred in A Quiet Place—officially announced a release date for the film’s sequel in a post on Instagram. “They always say good things come to those who wait. Well... I think we’ve waited long enough. A QUIET PLACE PART II. MEMORIAL DAY,” the caption read. That’s right—we’re starting off Summer 2021 with the Abbot family.

This is the first update we’ve gotten on the flick since September 2019, when The Office star revealed that the highly anticipated sequel had wrapped filming. We guess the coronavirus pandemic stunted the post-production process.

The following January, we received the first teaser trailer for the film, which seemed to pick up right where the original left off and introduced new monsters and new characters, such as a survivalist played by Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders).

The original movie told the story of a post-apocalyptic world where humans are hunted by fast-moving creatures. The only way to survive? Stay silent. Tough ask for a family of five with three young children.

Krasinski is returning to write and direct the new film, along with Blunt, 36, who will reprise her role as Abbott family matriarch, Evelyn. Actors Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe are also set to return as Regan and Marcus, the couple's two children.

Mark your calendars.
