This article discusses if there will be a Lou 2, a sequel to Lou (2022), and whether or not spoilers will be included.
Lou, the next Netflix film, has arrived on the streaming giant's waves. With the popularity of such unassuming action figures as the recent Bob Odenkirk vehicle Nobody and Sylvester Stallone's Samaritan, Lou might have long, evergreen legs for Netflix. However, Lou has something that these other films do not: Allison Janney. In the midst of the female empowerment renaissance, Janney's tribute to Geena Davis and Sigourney Weaver's roles
Lou (2022) is on the verge of a sequel release date.
Lou was released on Netflix on Friday, September 23rd, 2022. It currently has a 67% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Our film critic M.N. Miller describes the film as a "bleak thriller." We may see a sequel in the fall of 2024.
The cast of a sequel to Lou (2022) – who can be in it?
Jurnee Smollett's Hannah, Ridley Asha Bateman's Vee, and Matt Craven's Sheriff Rankin all survived the script's narration. Hannah and Vee were on a ferry crossing the water the last time we saw them. Sheriff Craven was helping Hannah pack up at the house. Two additional characters that might appear are the federal agents, Lee and Hampton. They are looking for information about Lou's body, since her body was never recovered.
Yes, the last time we saw Lou, she was floating at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, and we assumed she was swept up in a current. We never saw anyone in the aircraft in the final scene, although we presumed she is Lou, holding binoculars while watching her family. How do we know this?
And I have one more thought for you: We never saw Philips' body recovered.
What is the story behind Lou 2 in the sequel to Lou (2022?)?
Lou might be on the run and watching over her family. Is it possible that Hannah and Vee might be part of the plot? Yes and no. Perhaps, the film might depict the feds' pursuit of Lou on the run. However, I can see a case where the government uses Lou's family as pawns to keep our favorite golden girl from being caught.
When it comes to money, the second idea goes back to Philip. As I pointed out, we technically didn't see any bodies recovered. As we all know Hollywood rules state machine gun wounds can easily miss vital organs for the sake of sequels when money is involved. Perhaps Philip is alive and under federal custody. I can easily envision a film about Lou infiltrating such a facility to pay her son for all of her mistakes as a mother.
