The finale of The Old Guard was more of a cliffhanger, and it’s expected that the sequel picks up after Booker’s betrayal to the group and him getting exiled for a century only to discover his love of Quynh, who survived from the bottom of the ocean, in his house.

Quynh’s intentions are still unclear; whether she wants revenge or love is still left to be disclosed by the writers. As we know, the movie is an adaptation of Greg Rucka’s Old Guard comic book, and the sequel to the book has already been published. The sequel by Rucka is named Force Multiplied, which gives us several hints about The Old Guard 2.

It has been revealed from the comic that Andy is no longer immortal, and the fans are teased by the fact that the comic reveals that Quynh has been made immortal to punish humanity instead of protecting it and that she wants Andy on her crew as a participant and her lover, but to her surprise, Andy’s wound from an earlier church fight doesn’t heal, hence proving her mortality and making her vulnerable with every battle.
