Will there be a Dazed And Confused 2? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

Dazed And Confused 2

“Alright, Alright, Alright.” Who can forget that iconic line uttered by Matthew McConaughey in Dazed and Confused? Directed by Richard Linklater, the 1993 coming-of-age movie launched the career of McConaughey and a slew of other actors, and has grown in popularity as the years have gone by, establishing itself as a cult teen comedy classic.  But will there be a Dazed And Confused 2? Or do we have to settle for this one being a one-off teen comedy drama? Here’s what we know at the time of writing:


What is Dazed And Confused about?

This movie follows the adventures of high school students on the last day of the school year in a small Texas town in May 1976. David Wooderson and co. are doing everything they can to get stoned and drunk while chasing girls around. 


Will there be a sequel to Dazed And Confused?

No, Dazed And Confused 2 won’t happen for a very straightforward reason: the story has already been told. The original film was regarded as an entirely self-contained, stand-alone narrative. 


What could Dazed And Confused 2 be about?

It is a fascinating prospect to imagine what David Wooderson is doing in 2023. And a sequel based around his character would be the logical follow-up to Dazed and Confused, but don’t hold your breath, as Matthew McConaughey is one of the most sought-after actors on the planet, and likely wouldn’t have the time to reprise his iconic role. 


When could a sequel be released?

The sequel would have at least been discussed if it were in the works. However, since there is currently no information regarding Dazed And Confused 2, it is best to avoid getting your hopes up, as the likelihood of one is extremely low.

Of course, this is all speculation and if anything changes, we’ll be sure to update you!
