It’s been almost 8 years since World War Z came out and fans have been wondering whatever happened to the sequel promised by Paramount.
The zombie apocalypse movie was adopted by a novel of the same name by Max Brooks. It turned out to be a box office blockbuster with more than $500 million worldwide and making the highest-grossing zombie movie of all time. Everything was set for a sequel to return so where is it till now?
A lot of fans have already lost hope but in the year 2020 producer, Jeremy Kleiner said that ‘a sequel could become reality someday’. So keeping his statement in mind and the promise he made to the fans, let’s start this article.
In this article, we’ll be going to see everything related to the popular show, World War z, and its upcoming season 2. Keep reading this article to know everything about it.
Has World War z 2 been canceled?
It was promised earlier that the sequel will return in 2017 but the production didn’t even begin and it was all over without the start.
The shooting was then expected to start in spring 2018. But Brad Pitt had to go away for the shooting of ‘Once upon a time in Hollywood’.
There was another delay because Director David Fincher had to work on ‘Mindhunter Season 2‘ so the dates kept pushing and fans weren’t happy about it. Fans sure would love to see them reunited duo of Fincher and Brad Pitt after movies like Se7en, The fight club, and The curious case of Benjamin Button.
The budget has always been a factor since Paramount had to see through over 6, month shoots in 5 different countries.
A report by a Hollywood reporter suggests that the main reason behind the cancellation or pushing dates was the Chinese government. The country has banned movies including zombies and ghosts and keeping in mind that the Chinese market holds a lot of potential viewers. Regardless, a lot of factors are coming in the way of World War Z 2 becoming a reality.

Is there a chance that World War Z 2 will happen?
There’s always a possibility because the zombie apocalypse is the favorite genre among the audience. Also, the success of the first movie could not be overseen. No one says ‘No’ to movies like this.
Brad Pitt earlier released a statement that ‘We had an excellent story, which he shepherded, a really strong story. The stuff he had prepared just hadn’t been witnessed yet. I’m sure he’ll get it out on something else.
So there’s a slight chance that Paramount might revive this sequel sometime later in 2024 maybe.
Who is Going to Cast in the Sequel?
If the sequel does happen, Brad Pitt is going to star as the lead United Nation Investigator and the zombie killer Gerry lane.
Earlier confirmed by Mireille Enos that she would return as wife Karin Line. But I am not sure whether everything would be the same after 4 years.
The officials haven’t released anything regarding the cast and the Stars are already busy with their project. If there will be any updates with this show then I’ll make sure to let you know. Make sure to bookmark this page for future updates.

World War Z 2: Probable Plot
Predicting the plot of the sequel can be a little confusing because the first part was adapted from the novel by Max Brooks. Gerry Lane did say at the end of World War Z that ‘there’s still much left to be done.
So filmmakers should be looking for another zombie attack across the globe stretching into the political future as well. If there will be season 2 of this movie then I would really love to see more action between the zombies.
However, all these are just predictions made by us and most of the show lovers. The future of the sequel of World War Z isn’t bright enough to say much about it.
