Will there be a Bird Box 3? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

Bird Box 3

Currently streaming on Netflix is Bird Box: Barcelona, an apocalyptic thriller about a group of people trying to survive an attack on our planet by an unseen force that drives people to suicide.

The events of the movie take place around the same time as those in 2018’s Bird Box so, strictly speaking, this latest release can’t really be called Bird Box 2. It’s a sidequel rather than a sequel. As such, a third movie shouldn’t really be called Bird Box 3,  but for simplicity’s sake, we have used that term in our title.

If you are a fan of the Bird Box movies and are hoping for another story set within the same universe – be that a sequel, sidequel, or prequel – you will want to know whether or not Netflix has given another movie the green light. Here’s what we know:

What is Bird Box: Barcelona about?

This new movie takes place in Spain and follows Sebastián and his daughter Anna, and a handful of other survivors, who are trying to find refuge in the city of Barcelona. 

Mysterious invisible creatures are roaming the land and those who lay eyes on them are overcome with a desire to kill themselves. Sebastián seems immune to their influence, which could be the reason why he has managed to survive the monster invasion. 

During the course of the movie, Sebastián both aids and abets other survivors. He is a morally conflicted character for reasons that we won’t go into here.

Will there be another Bird Box movie?

At the time of writing, a third movie in this post-apocalyptic franchise has not been announced but we do think another Bird Box movie is likely

When speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Chris Morgan, one of the producers of Bird Box: Barcelona, had this to say about the first movie and it’s recent follow-up.

“Malorie’s journey was just the first chapter of this global, apocalyptic event. As we were developing the original film, we often discussed what would be happening at the same time in different countries around the world.

During this extinction-level event for humanity, how would families in Europe, Asia, and Africa respond to the mysterious creatures’ sudden appearance around the globe? What unique challenges would people face based on their geography, culture, their politics? Bird Box: Barcelona gives us the opportunity to expand and explore the mystery further.”

While Morgan doesn’t reference a follow-up to Bird Box: Barcelona directly, it does seem likely that we might one day see a third Bird Box movie set in another part of the world. This could take place around the same time as the movies that we have already seen. 

There is also a cliffhanger at the end of Bird Box: Barcelona that leaves the way open for a sequel. As such, we are confident that we will see another Bird Box movie at some point but as for when that might be, we aren’t entirely sure at this stage.

We aim to update this page when we know more about the possibility of Bird Box 3 (or whatever else the next movie might become known as). 

What could happen in the next Bird Box movie?

The movie could take place in another part of the world, such as Africa, Asia, or another city in Europe. It would likely focus on a new group of survivors who have to take refuge from the mysterious creatures that have invaded our planet. 

During Bird Box: Barcelona, we learn some people are immune to the force exhibited by the monsters. And at the end of the movie, we discover scientists are capitalizing on this to create a potential cure that can protect the lives of those who aren’t immune. Therefore, it would seem logical to suggest that the third movie could focus on this cure during its story. 

These are our suggestions but what do you think could happen in the next Bird Box movie? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. I liked way much more the second movie. Different vantage point, but more details on ehat is happening.

  2. I liked the first film better because it was more realistic and I felt more empathetic towards zSandra Bullock and the pet her characters. The Barcelona sequel was , it appeared, too much a fantasy and less scary because of that factor.
