Will there be a They Cloned Tyrone 2? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

They Cloned Tyrone 2

They Cloned Tyrone is now available to stream on Netflix. Juel Taylor directs Jamie Foxx, Teyonah Parris, and John Boyega in this wildly entertaining and absurdist social satire. 

The events of the movie take place in the Glen, a predominantly black neighbourhood. where a pimp, a prostitute, and a drug dealer come together to uncover a deep-rooted conspiracy to “protect the neighbourhood.” They Cloned Tyrone offers a healthy yet inconsistent mix of satire and humour. The twist ending leaves a lot of headroom for continuing the story in a sequel. 

If you did enjoy watching it 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 They Cloned Tyrone about?

They Cloned Tyrone sees Fontaine (John Boyega), Slick Charles (Jamie Foxx), and Yo-Yo (Teyonah Parris) come together to uncover a dark mystery about their neighbourhood. All of this starts when Fontaine is killed by a rival gang leader Isaac in the parking lot of the motel where Slick and Yo-Yo run their “business” from. 

However, the two are shocked to see Fontaine alive the next day and forgetful of the events that happened. Fontaine spots a black SUV kidnapping a pedestrian in broad daylight and he presses the other two to accompany him to the car and investigate. They break into a house and discover a weird elevator that takes them down to a lab.

Fontaine’s eyes almost pop out of his head when he sees his dead body lying on a stretcher. This kickstarts a full-fledged investigation by the trio, who have no idea what they are up against.

Will there be a They Cloned Tyrone 2?

At the time of writing, a second movie has not been announced but we do think a follow-up movie is highly unlikely

Juel Taylor, the director of the film, doesn’t seem interested in doing a follow-up and sees the film complete as is. Having said that, the movie has just been released on Netflix and in theatres. If it does turn out to be a success, Taylor and the studio may give the possibility of a sequel a rethink.

Thus far, the reaction from the critics and audiences has been very good. Many see They Cloned Tyrone as an instant classic. It has all the trappings to become one of modern pop culture’s favourite allegories of our broken sense of community. 

There is also a cliffhanger at the end of They Cloned Tyrone that leaves the way open for a sequel.

While we are not confident there will be a sequel, there is a slim possibility. We aim to update this page when we have more information.

What could happen in They Cloned Tyrone 2?

The movie could take place in the same universe as at the end of the movie, we finally meet Tyrone, who lives in Los Angeles. At the conclusion, our infamous trio all decided to give Memphis a go so in the sequel, they could discover another underground factory of clones. 

This might be in the vein of films like Zombieland and Bird Box that continue the same formula to the storytelling in different locations to make a complete movie franchise.
