Will there be a ManFish 2? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

ManFish 2

Currently streaming on Shudder is ManFish, a British comedy horror film about a luckless man named Terry and the new love of his life, a humanoid sea creature who washes up on the beach and into his heart.

If you have seen and enjoyed ManFish, you might be interested in a sequel.

But will there be a ManFish 2? Or have the chances of a sequel been relegated to the bottom of the ocean?

Here’s what we know:

What is ManFish about?

ManFish tells the story of Terry, a rather sad individual who is bullied by nearly everybody around him. 

One day, Terry’s life takes a turn for the better when he finds a washed-up ‘man-fish’ on the beach. He takes this aquatic being home with him, and after forming a bond with the sea creature, he starts to fall in love with it.

Unfortunately, Terry’s girlfriend Tracey and his brother Nigel want to profit from this oceanic creature, and their plans put a dampener on Terry’s chances of a happier life with his fishy friend. 

As the movie progresses, Terry must fight for the love of his life before it is sold off to somebody who might not have its best interests at heart.

Do Terry and ManFish get a chance at a happy relationship? We aren’t going to reveal that here but if you would like to know more about the movie, check out our Ending Explained article which goes into detail about the story. 

Will there be a sequel to ManFish?

At the time of writing, there would appear to be no plans for a sequel to ManFish. Since this movie’s release, its director, Marc Coleman, has started work on another movie, Members Club, about a middle-aged stripper club who get mixed up in a plot to raise a 16th Century witch from the dead. There is no information on his IMDB page about a sequel to ManFish and as far as we know, he hasn’t expressed his intention to make a follow-up movie.

We think ManFish 2 is unlikely as it’s not the kind of movie that needs a sequel. It tells a rather bizarre story that ends in a fairly conclusive way. As such, you shouldn’t hold your breath (underwater or otherwise) for a follow-up movie. But if we do hear news of a sequel, we will update this page with the relevant information. 

What could ManFish 2 be about?

In the unlikely event that there is a sequel, the movie will likely focus on Terry and his ongoing relationship with the sea creature. It might even focus on another interspecies love affair between another human and a man-fish. The two couples might even go on a double date!

We don’t think a sequel will happen though. But if you have a story idea that could work for a sequel, do let us know in the comments below.
