If we were to predict a release date, we expect the sequel to arrive sometime in July 2023 as the July slot worked so well for the first movie and made it one of the most-watched Netflix movies ever.
The sequel for the movie was confirmed back in August 2021 and Prince-Bythewood, the producer told Deadline, “I leave our franchise in good hands as my girl Vic Mahoney takes on this next chapter,”

The Old Guard 2 Plot
In the credit scene of the first movie, we saw Booker in Paris six months after he’s been released from the team due to his betrayal and when he enters his place, he is greeted by Quynh, who has miraculously escaped from the bottom of the ocean. She tells him, “It’s nice to finally meet you,” but it’s yet to be revealed if she’s out for revenge or she just wants to get back with Andy.
Another major reveal that will have implications for the sequel is the fact that Andy is no longer an immortal. She finds this when a stab wound from a fight in church doesn’t heal. So, now she will be on her own in every battle, and she believes that the massive change is because of Nile’s arrival. In the sequel, we expect to see more depth into the immortality aspect of the characters and how each member of the old guard was chosen to be immortal.
The Old Guard 2 Cast
We expect the main cast to return for the sequel, including:
Charlize Theron as Andy
KiKi Layne as Nile
Matthias Schoenaerts as Booker
Marwan Kenzari as Joe
Luca Marinelli as Nicky
Uma Thurman and Henry Golding are joining the cast for The Old Guard 2. We don’t know what will be their respective roles but we know for sure that they’re going to be a brilliant addition to the team as both of them are familiar with the type of fantastical over-the-top action the Old Guard series offer. Golding played the role of G.I. Joe fan-favorite Snake Eyes in 2021, while Thurman played The Bride in both parts of Quentin Tarantino’s revenge saga Kill Bill.
