The follow-up to “Vacation Friends”, titled “Vacation Friends 2”, is now available on Hulu and Disney+ globally.
Following its premiere, the initial movie achieved outstanding success on Hulu, setting a record as the platform’s most-viewed original film during its opening weekend. Given this success, it was only natural for a sequel to be approved.
The movie follows strait-laced Marcus and Emily (Howery, Orji) are befriended by wild, thrill-seeking partiers Ron and Kyla (Cena, Hagner) at a resort in Mexico. Living in the moment, the usually level-headed couple lets loose to enjoy a week of uninhibited fun and debauchery with their new “vacation friends.”
Is there a possibility for yet another “Vacation Friends” installment? Read on for everything we know about Vacations Friends 3!
Will There Be A Vacations Friends 3?
Officially, Vacations Friends 3 hasn’t been green-light, but that certainly doesn’t mean that a third movie couldn’t happen.
Writer-director Clay Tarver, the mind behind the first two installments, has yet to unveil if they have novel ideas to extend the narrative. However, during a recent conversation with LRM Online on YouTube, when prodded about the prospect, Tarver optimistically remarked, “I’ll try, I’ll try!” This offers a glimmer of hope for fans.
The likelihood of a third chapter is quite promising, especially considering “Vacation Friends” is one of Hulu’s standout original movie franchises. Furthermore, with John Cena’s character, Ron, hinting at unresolved matters by the end of the second movie, it’s evident that the team has plans for another cinematic adventure.
Currently, we’re observing a transformative period for Disney, marked by stringent cost reductions, higher subscription fees, and notably conservative expenditures.
If we’re to see a third installment, “Vacation Friends 2” must achieve remarkable success. We might have to wait some time before we find out if Disney greenlights “Vacation Friends 3.”
Vacations Friends 3 Release Date
While “Vacation Friends 3” hasn’t been officially announced yet, pinpointing an exact release date for the third installment is challenging. Nonetheless, both “Vacation Friends” and “Vacation Friends 2” premiered in August two-years apart.
If there is to be a third installment, “Vacation Friends 3” might be slated for an August 2025 release. However, the Hollywood strikes could push it to a later date.
