Will there be an Unheard 2? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

The Unheard 2

Sitting alongside other horror movies featuring hearing-impaired protagonists, such as Hush and A Quiet Place, The Unheard is a decent title currently streaming on Shudder.

If you have seen and enjoyed The Unheard, you might be interested in a sequel. But is The Unheard 2 likely to happen? Here’s what we know:


What happens in The Unheard?

The Unheard tells the story of Chloe, a young woman who lost her hearing at the age of 8 after being in a meningitis-inflicted coma.

Chloe manages to regain her hearing thanks to an experimental procedure carried out by the kindly Dr. Lynch. But the operation has consequences as Chloe suddenly gains the ability to hear high-pitched frequency sounds that seem to be connected to her missing mother. Not only that but she also has to contend with a killer who is targeting women in her community.

We aren’t going to reveal any more here as we would be leaning into spoiler territory. But if you would like to know more about The Unheard, check out our Ending Explained article which goes into a little more detail about the movie.


Will there be The Unheard 2?

There is no official word on a sequel for The Unheard so we can’t yet say for sure. However, we think a second movie is very unlikely as The Unheard comes to a fairly definitive end so it doesn’t necessarily need a sequel.

Of course, plenty of horror movies have been granted sequels, even though they haven’t always been necessary. As such, there is still a chance that The Unheard 2 could happen. But it’s best not to get your hopes up as the chances of a follow-up movie are quite slim.


What could The Unheard 2 be about?

The movie would likely focus on Chloe again and her life after regaining her hearing. By the end of the first movie, we learn more about her mother and the reason for her disappearance, so the sequel could follow this plot thread, with Chloe trying to make contact with her mom.

We are just speculating, of course, as a sequel isn’t likely. But what do you think could happen in The Unheard 2? Let us know in the comments below.


When could The Unheard 2 be released?

The Unheard 2 could be released as early as next year if the schedules of the cast and crew can accommodate a follow-up movie. But as we don’t think The Unheard 2 will happen, you might want to turn your attention to one of these upcoming horror movies instead of holding out for a sequel.
