Red Notice is the action-comedy film from director Rawson Marshall Thurber. Starring Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds, it is an explosive adventure filled with humor, thrills, and non-stop action.
At its core, Red Notice is a classic heist movie, with a high-tech twist. The plot revolves around the pursuit of three legendary artifacts, all hidden in secret locations around the world.
Johnson plays an FBI agent, Gadot is a skilled art thief, and Reynolds is a con artist – all three of them are hunting down these valuable items for their own reasons.
The story is fast-paced and engaging, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat.
It was also a HUGE hit for Netflix becoming the most-watched film in its debut weekend, as well as the most-watched film within 28 days of release on Netflix.
So of course, the powers that be were always going to renew it, but when exactly can we expect to see Red Notice 2?

RED NOTICE 2 RELEASE DATE ON NETFLIX
Despite costing over $200m to make, with each of the three lead actors reportedly being paid $20m EACH, Red Notice was so successful that not one, but TWO sequels have been confirmed.
In January of 2022, it was revealed that the two sequels were officially in the works and would be shot back-to-back. In October of the same year, it was announced that the script for the second film had been completed, while work on the screenplay for the third movie was ongoing.
Writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber would return, along with Johnson, Reynolds and Gadot reprising their respective roles.
What we know so far is that filming for Red Notice 2 is underway as of January 2nd, 2023. Before you get too excited, the first Red Notice filmed also began filming in January (2020) and took 10 months to complete.
Even then it took another full year to hit our screens via Netflix. I can also tell you that the sequel is it not on the scheduled list of movie releases for 2023!.
So our best guess at this stage is that Red Notice 2 will be coming to us in mid to late 2024.
What Does Red Notice Mean?
The title of the movie, Red Notice, is significant as it refers to an official notification issued by Interpol for its most wanted criminals.
According to Interpol's website, a Red Notice is a request for law enforcement worldwide to locate and temporarily detain a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action.
It includes information such as the individual's name, date of birth, nationality, physical characteristics, photographs, and fingerprints (if available), as well as information about the crime they are accused of, such as murder or armed robbery.
These notices are published by Interpol upon the request of a member country and must comply with the organisation's constitution and rules. However, it's important to note that a Red Notice does not serve as an international arrest warrant.
