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

Purple Hearts 2

If you’re looking for a romance movie on Netflix, you are pretty much spoiled for choice. Wedding Season, All My Life, and Persuasion are just some of the movies that have recently landed on the streaming service and Purple Hearts is another.

This marriage-of-convenience story won the hearts of many after its release and if you were captivated by the love story between Luke and Cassie, it might be that you’re interested in a sequel.

But will there be a ‘Purple Hearts 2’? Or is your heart about to be broken? Here’s what we know at the time of writing:


What is Purple Hearts about?

Purple Hearts isn’t a typical ‘love at first sight’ type of story. Far from it, in fact, as when troubled marine Luke and aspiring singer-songwriter Cassie meet at a bar, they initially clash with one another.

However, these conflicting characters both have money issues; Cassie is struggling to pay for her diabetes medication and Luke owes thousands of dollars to a drug dealer.

To get around their financial problems, they decide to marry as this will make them eligible for military benefits. After making this morally dubious choice, the two stay in touch via video calls when Luke is away on active service.  When tragedy strikes, Luke returns home and the two then start to fall in love with each other for real!

Needless to say, if you enjoy romantic tear-jerkers, you might fall in love with this one!


Will there be a Purple Hearts 2?

At the time of writing, Purple Hearts 2 has not been announced. Despite the movie’s popularity with streaming audiences, not every reviewer has been kind about the movie so Netflix might have cold feet about making a follow-up movie.

The chances of a sequel are pretty slim anyway as the story doesn’t end on a cliffhanger so there isn’t necessarily a need to continue the story of Luke and Cassie.

However, in an interview with Variety, Cassie actress Sofia Carson did hint at the possibility of a sequel. She said:

“Now fans have kind of been demanding a sequel and there’s so many fan theories and fan stories and potential spinoffs, so of course it’s lovely to think of a life for Cassie and Luke beyond this film,” she says. “I adore being Cassie and I’d be curious to see where it goes. Who knows. You never know!”

The movie’s director, Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum, also weighed in on the possibility of a sequel. In Variety’s article, she is quoted as saying:

“I mean, I could watch the two of them (Sofia and co-star Nicholas Galitzine) and their chemistry all day. And they’re just great people to work with, so I definitely won’t rule it out,” she says. “We wouldn’t do anything unless we really, really loved it, because we want to stay true to the integrity. We haven’t landed on anything specific yet. It’s always a possibility.”

It’s fair to say then that a sequel might be on the cards but again, this depends on the higher-ups at Netflix as they have the final say on the movies that they want to see on their streaming platform.


What could Purple Hearts 2 be about?

SPOILER WARNING!!!

If you have seen the movie, you will know that it ends up with Luke and Cassie together. Despite this happy resolution, life takes a downward turn for the pair when Luke is discharged from the army and sentenced to six months in prison for his role in their fraudulent marriage. This is bad news for the pair but if saw the credits scene, you will have seen Cassie hanging up a flag that reads “Welcome Home” – an indication that Luke has served his time and is on his way home.

The sequel could follow on from this moment with Luke’s return home and their reconciliation. It could continue with Luke trying to find a job outside of the Marines and Cassie trying to pursue her musical dreams. If Cassie has to be away from home for prolonged periods on concert tours (a neat twist on the first movie where Luke was away on a tour of duty), there could be tension in their relationship as a consequence of them being apart.

We are just speculating here as there has been no news of a sequel yet. But even if another movie doesn’t get the green light, you can still enjoy the fan fiction that has been written by Purple Heart devotees.


When could Purple Hearts 2 be released?

If the sequel was to get the green light then the movie would probably be released in late 2023 or early 2024. But as there is no news of a follow-up movie at this stage, it’s wise not to get your hopes up as the chances of a sequel are probably very slim.
