Will there be a Spoonful of Sugar 2? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

Spoonful of Sugar

This new psychological horror tale, which is currently streaming on Shudder, has nothing to do with Mary Poppins, despite the title of the movie. It does centre on a young woman who is hired to look after the needs of a young child but at no point does she break into song or tidy the house with a click of her fingers.

If you have seen Spoonful of Sugar and enjoyed its dark story, you might be interested in a sequel. But will there be a Spoonful of Sugar 2? Here’s what we know at the time of writing.

Please note: This article contains spoilers about the movie’s ending so approach with caution if you have not yet seen it!


What is Spoonful of Sugar about?

Spoonful of Sugar tells the story of Millicent, an LSD-addicted woman who takes time off from her studies to look after a young boy named Johnny who has some very serious allergies.

Millicent quickly bonds with the boy which is something of a surprise to his parents who have struggled to engage with him themselves. But as good as this new sitter is, things take a dark turn when the mom becomes jealous of the young woman’s influence over her son.

A battle of wills takes place between the two women and this escalates into violence. Johnny is caught in the middle of the conflict, as is his father who takes an unhealthy interest in Millicent when he starts to become attracted to her.

Happy families this is not! The end of the movie leaves the way open for a sequel. But will we see a follow-up movie?


Will there be a Spoonful of Sugar 2?

A sequel to Spoonful of Sugar has not yet been announced. The decision to continue with a second movie will likely depend on review scores and audience demand.

Reviews for the movie have been mixed thus far but this doesn’t mean a sequel won’t be made. Many badly received horror movies have been given sequels, so there is a chance that a second movie could be given the green light.

However, we think a follow-up movie is unlikely to happen as Millicent, the central character, doesn’t make it to the end of the movie. Johnny, the boy she was looking after, brutally kills her with a knife, so with her out of the way, there is little need for a sequel.


What could Spoonful of Sugar 2 be about?

At the end of Spoonful of Sugar, there are two shocking revelations.

We discover Millicent has killed various men that abused her while she was in the foster care system and we learn Johnny (or his parents) have previously murdered and buried other sitters.

Should there be a second movie, it could be a prequel if the backstory of Millicent and her time in foster care is revealed.

Alternatively, it could be a sequel, as Johnny’s mom tells her husband it’s time to look for a new sitter at the end of the first movie. The sequel could centre on this new sitter and their experiences with Johnny and his unstable parents.

This is just speculation as we don’t think a second movie will be made. But what do you think could happen in a sequel/prequel? Let us know in the comments below.


When could Spoonful of Sugar 2 be released?

In theory, the sequel could be released in the next couple of years but we don’t think it is likely to happen. We could be proven wrong though, so if we do hear news of a follow-up movie, we will update this page with the relevant information.
