Knives Out 3 is currently in the works. This sequel was first announced in March 2021, when Netflix bought the rights to the murder mystery franchise in a reported $400 million deal that included a second and third film.

Daniel Craig is slated to reprise his role as detective Benoit Blanc in the upcoming film, which follows Knives Out (2019) and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (2022).
