Moonfall came out in theatres on February 4. It was directed by Roland Emmerich and based on a screenplay written by him, Spenser Cohen, and Harald Kloser. With so many movies getting sequels these days, Emmerich’s sci-fi action movie seems like a good candidate for a sequel, especially after the ending, which was unexpected. Will there be a sequel to Moonfall? Here’s what you need to know.
When an unknown force knocks the moon out of its orbit, two astronauts, Jo Fowler (Halle Berry) and Brian Harper (Patrick Wilson) team up with conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (John Bradley) to stop the moon from crashing into Earth and ending life as they know it. What they find is beyond anything they could have imagined, and it sets up an idea that could be explored more in future movies.
Here’s what we know so far about Moonfall 2, how the first movie sets up a second one, and when people can expect to see it.
Moonfall 2 Release Date
Unfortunately, Moonfall 2 hasn’t been confirmed yet, so we don’t know when it will come out. The first Moonfall movie was announced in May 2019, and it came out in February 2022. This means that it took just under three years to make the movie and get it into theatres. But because of the COVID pandemic, this plan had to be changed.
If we use this timeline to figure out when a second Moonfall movie will come out, it won’t be until late 2024. But we know that some studios like to move quickly when it comes to making sequels, especially if Moonfall does as well at the box office as we think it will.

When Moonfall 2 gets the go-ahead and the news comes out, we can expect Lionsgate to move quickly and try to get to work on the sequel as soon as possible. Even so, we wouldn’t hold our breath for the next book in the Moonfall series to come out before 2024.
Who Could Come Back for Moonfall 2?
If there was a Moonfall 2, Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, and John Bradley could all come back. Even so, John Bradley’s character would play a slightly different role in a sequel, since his mind is now part of the moon.

Tom, played by Michael Pea, and Jo’s ex-husband, played by Eme Ikwuakor, both died in Moonfall, so they probably won’t come back. Moonfall kept a few characters alive besides the main ones. Sonny, played by Charlie Plummer, Michelle, played by Kelly Yu, and Brenda, played by Carolina Bartczak, could all be in Moonfall 2.
What Will Happen in Moonfall 2?
Since there is no official synopsis yet, we can only guess what Moonfall 2’s story will be about. The ending of Moonfall definitely sets up a sequel in a big way, and it sounds like there could be more swarms of dangerous artificial intelligence (AI) all over the universe that needs to be stopped.
At the end of Moonfall, when John Bradley’s character, K.C. Houseman, destroys the AI on the moon, he is taken in by the OS and becomes part of the moon’s consciousness. The OS then tells Houseman, “There is work to be done,” which suggests that he will have a big part to play in any future battles with their nanotech enemies.
Our best guess, which you should take with a huge grain of salt, is that Houseman and the OS have now saved the moon and will go out into the universe to try to stop the AI that has taken over the other meta-structures.

Still to be seen is how that possible storyline would fit into the story arcs of both Brian Harper (Wilson) and Jacinda Fowler (Berry). Houseman and the OS might need the help of the astronauts and ask them to join them on their quest. Or, maybe the main characters in a Moonfall sequel would be different.
