Waiting for the sci-fi thriller to return for a second time? Read on to find out the latest updates on Spiderhead 2.

Spiderhead is a science fiction thriller film that is based on the dystopian short story Escape from Spiderhead by George Saunders. The film follows the prisoners at a top-secret facility, Spiderhead, where even mass shooters live in security bungalows. As the manipulative pseudo-protagonist, Steve oversees the inmates and never misses an opportunity to tell them how relaxing lives they’re being provided, even after committing grave crimes. Steve manipulates the inmates and convinces them to participate in his increasingly unethical human trials.

The movie premiered on June 17, 2022, on Netflix and received generally positive reviews. The series is directed by Joseph Kosinski and stars Chris Hemsworth, who has widely received praise for his performance. Fans are already wondering about the possibility of a sequel to the film and if there is more to the story or not.

Here’s everything you need to know about Spiderhead 2.

Will there be a sequel to Spiderhead?

There’s no announcement regarding the sequel by the creators as of now, which isn’t surprising as the first movie has just been released. The sequel seems unlikely as the film was based on a short story and wraps almost everything by the end. But it’s possible that the makers somehow decide to twist the original story and bring back the movie for a sequel. But we can not say anything for sure until the official announcement from the makers.

Spiderhead 2 Plot

*Spoilers Ahead*

In the first movie, it was revealed that Mark has spiked Abnesti’s MobiPak, which is the device used to administer the drugs. After Jeff tries to administer multiple drugs to him, he confesses that they were mostly testing an obedience drug, which is potent enough that Abnesti can live among the killers by administering it to the inmates but not strong enough to grant full control.

After Jeff and Lizzy escape, Abnesti gets on his plane and crashes it under the influence of drugs. Mark returns to the facility with the authorities. In the sequel, we can see how Abnesti has survived and what new plans he has been up to. He can go after Mark, Jeff, and Lizzy again and make them relive the horrors of the past. But it’s also possible that Spiderhead 2 will be without Abnesti as he’s been killed. We’ll keep you updated with every development and synopsis of the sequel as soon as it is revealed by the creators.
