Will there be a Dirty Dancing 3? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

Dirty Dancing 3

“Nobody puts Baby in the corner.” Who can forget that classic line uttered by Patrick Swayze in the classic ’80s mega hit, Dirty Dancing? The movie featured one of the best soundtracks ever and launched the career of Jennifer Grey. The dance moves between her and Swayze have since become iconic and been copied over and over since the release of the movie. 

But will there be an Dirty Dancing 3? Or do we have to settle for two romantic movies in the series? Here’s what we know at the time of writing:


What is Dirty Dancing about?

Baby Houseman is spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, when she meets and falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor, Johnny Castle. 


Will there be another sequel to Dirty Dancing?

Dirty Dancing 3 might happen, as it has at least been discussed previously, but things have gone quiet recently. The big stumbling block is that Patrick Swayze sadly passed away in 2009, and it wouldn’t be the same without his character, Johnny Castle.


What could Dirty Dancing 3 be about?

If they were to proceed with a sequel, it would be wise to ignore the second movie, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, and do a direct sequel to the original movie, with Jennifer Grey reprising her role as Baby Houseman, and seeing what she’s up to all these years later. 


When could a sequel be released?

The sequel has been discussed, but it’s not currently in the works. Keep an eye out for any information regarding Dirty Dancing 3, but it is best to avoid getting your hopes up, as the likelihood of one is quite low.

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