On Friday, Feb. 22, 2019, John Krasinski took to Instagram and Twitter to post a promotion for a sequel to his highly successful 2018 film, “A Quiet Place,” which he directed and starred in. The posts featured a picture of the doorstep to the infamous home the movie played out in. The warning lights Krasinski’s character installed for his family are beaming bright red, indicating danger, and there are footsteps on the porch and entrance. The caption reads, “…time to go back. #PartII 5-15-20.”

The main family, comprised of Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe are expected to return in the sequel. In December, Blunt and Krasinski did an interview with Deadline, where Krasinski revealed “It’s a pretty good promise that I won’t be coming back, unless I do the Hamlet thing; just sort of float around.”

To summarize the premise for the film, he went on to say, “Most sequels are about the return of a hero or a villain. You take this character that people loved once and you bring them back, and you have to create a new world around them. We have the exact opposite setup. We have the world, and you can drop whoever you want into that world and everyone feels connected to it.”
