More than a year after it was originally intended for release, A Quiet Place Part 2 finally arrived in cinemas last year – and proved to be another nerve-shredding triumph for director John Krasinski.


Unsurprisingly given its success, it looks like there's plenty more to look forward to in the A Quiet Place universe, with two new films having already been confirmed by Paramount.

A third part to the main series is reportedly still a few years away – but in the meantime a new spin-off is expected to arrive in cinemas next year, focusing on different characters caught up in the same post-apocalyptic world and trying to survive the invasion of the noise-hunting monsters.

While no plot or casting details have been announced, Pig director Michael Sarnoski is set to helm the project, after originally attached filmmaker Jeff Nichols pulled out.

Check out everything we know about the next A Quiet Place movies below. And if you still need some more movie analysis after watching the second instalment, here is our A Quiet Place 2 ending explainer - but watch out for spoilers!

A Quiet Place spin-off release date

The third film in the franchise – the spin-off – is currently scheduled to arrive in UK cinemas on Friday 23rd September 2023, just over two years after the second instalment in the main series was released.

It was originally set for an earlier release of 31st March 2023, but in January 2022 it was announced that this was to be pushed back by Paramount.

A Quiet Place Part 3 release date speculation

The fourth film in the franchise – but the third in the main series – has also now been announced, with the news being confirmed by Paramount at the studio's 2022 Investor's Day.

So far, a specific release date has not been announced – beyond the fact that it is expected to be released in 2025 – but we'll post here when anything more exact is made official.

Who will be in the A Quiet Place spin-off cast?


Again, there haven’t been any official announcements on this yet. If this is really a spin-off, it seems unlikely that Blunt, Symonds, Jupe or Part 2’s newcomer Cillian Murphy will reprise their roles, unless there’s scope for cameos from the original characters – although we'd expect them all to be back for A Quiet Place Part 3 in 2025.

Notably, the second film makes judicious use of flashbacks to incorporate writer/director John Krasinski’s deceased Lee Abbott into the action, so perhaps a similar technique could involve versions of the main story’s characters. Krasinski is executive producing this film (which is also drawn from a concept he originated), so it’s not completely out of the question that he’d go for a quick on-screen cameo as well.

What do we know about A Quiet Place 3's story?

No plot details for either the sequel or the spin-off have been confirmed, though star Blunt has said that Krasinski has plenty of ideas for both.

"He has a whole arc of ideas that could work," she told Collider.

"I think he just wanted to see how people responded to this one before he fully engaged his brain on the third one. But he has a couple of great ideas."

Is there a Quiet Place 3 trailer?

Unfortunately, it's far too early for any preview images or footage of any kind – but check back, as this page will be updated.
