'Bird Box' is officially getting a sequel so get your blindfolds ready

scandal 20/03/2019

In December last year, Netflix released one of it's biggest movies of 2018, Bird Box.

The film is based on the novel, of the same name, by Josh Malerman which came out in 2014 and after the success of the Netflix Original, he's just confirmed a sequel is on the way.

Speaking with Esquire, the writer said the new novel will take place eight years after the original story ended.

"At the end of the movie, I turned to my girl Allison and said, 'I want to know what happens next!' and she’s like, 'Well, you know, you could make that happen', so it really was this warm feeling," he shared.

As much as everyone wants to know what's happened to Boy & Girl since the end of the original story, Josh says the new novel's main focus will still be on Malorie.

"In the time between Bird Box coming out and the time since I’ve been writing Malorie, I’ve been asked a ton of times: people want to know what happened with Boy and Girl, But as much as I care about Boy and Girl, this isn’t their story. The Bird Box world is Malorie’s story and I wanted to know more about her. I wanted to get to know her even better."

The novel, titled 'Malorie', is set to be released October 1st this year.
